YEAR 6 - AUTUMN INVESTIGATION

On October 22nd the year 6 classes of Godolphin Junior School had fun learning all about the thrills of the season of autumn. First of all the year 6 classes attended a lesson in the hall about how seeds are dispersed and reproduction. They had a brilliant time learning about seeds that were about to be dispersed.

The fun did not stop there as they went outside in the school grounds to study plants that grow around the school. They found marvelous berries that were poisonous and seeds that could cause a rash. For example the rose bushes near the car park. The smells and sights were fantastic. Zaynah Khan quoted that in the school grounds she found lavender. The smells had been so inspiring that she added them to her bag to take inside and make a collage.

They also felt these wonderful plants. Some were prickly, for example the buddleia growing in the car park. As the leaves were falling off the trees they also changed colour so the children had a different assortments of leaves.

As they went back in their classrooms they did various activities for example some people wanted to make a collage or a hedgehog. Some wanted to write a poem or draw one of the objects. The main thing was that everyone had fun that day. We all went into the school hall to share what we had done. What a perfect end to the school term.

YEAR 3 - BLACK HISTORY MONTH

Year 3 children learning about Anansi stories from Africa.

BLACK HISTORY MONTH WORKSHOP

Wow what a performance!

On Friday 17th January we were visited by Performer/Educator Adrian Benn from Big Foot Education. Adrian, or Ade - as we are now allowed to call him - came from London and delivered an electrifying performance and set of workshops to four classes. The whole school sat mesmerised for an hour watching his highly interactive assembly where he told Anansi stories from West Africa. It was a fully interactive performance, as many of the teachers will testify, and was hugely entertaining. It was very exciting and motivating to have such a skilled performer in the school.

Later in the day four classes from Year 4 and Year 5 took part in workshops developing the ideas from the Anansi stories. It was an excellent opportunity to learn a lot about drama but also about focus, listening and team work. Ade was very complimentary about the school and the pupil's drama skills. We hope he can dome again in the future.
