  • Art Competitions All Should Enter

    Published 19/01/18, by Sam Wilcox

    Due to the fact that we have a very inspiring, artistic class; I would like to make everyone aware of a 2 art competitions that you should all enter

    This is the first one by the Victoria and Albert Museum: The much-loved stories of Winnie-the-Pooh are brought to life by wonderful illustrations that help readers to step inside the story and connect with the characters. Thinking about the importance of the relationship between words and pictures, we’d like you to create a completely original, fictional character and tell us a bit about them.

    To enter follow the link.

    The second is by the St Barbe Museum

    This year also sees our first ever Young Artist's Open which encourages budding artists aged up to 17 to submit two-dimensional artworks on a standard sized board provided by the museum. 
    It's just £1 to center and there are three age groups, and some great prizes on offer.
    The St Barbe Young Artist’s Open will coincide with the St Barbe Open Exhibition.

    On Thursda we had a school trip to Ballard School to do a drama workshop. It was Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. We all had lots of funacting out a classroom scene including; Violet Buerogade, Veruca Salt, Mike TV, Charlie, Augustus Gloop and a teacher. About half way through we stopped for a delicious, mouth-watering snack. The Kit Kats were beautiful.  The moment the tip of the tongue touched the smooth choclate surface you were plunged head first into the magical land of unicorns and rainbows. Tamsin said "I thought it was really awesome". 

    In Maths we leart about co-ordinates and Roman Numerals which, personally we both think are fun indeed. So good Maths lessons for us.

    On Monday, Mr Wilcox bored the class with relative clauses. We worked on division problems in Maths. In PE we practised handball for the Handball Tournament. 

    The next day we did timetables (bus timetables). In literacy we drew a picture of a setting in GG Hall, then we had to write descriptive nouns around the outside. In the afternoon we did RE and had to draw wanted posters for the Messiah. 

    On Wednesday we carried on with timetables in Maths. In English we wrote a tourist guide script. I really enjoyed it!

    Thursday we did addition and subtraction, Tamsin and I both found it easy. In ERT (English and Art) we drew pictures of evil villains that were going to Ghastly Gorm Hall. This was mine and Tamsin's favourite lesson of the week. After lunch we finished off ERT then we did science. 

    Finally it reached Friday. In Maths we carried on from yesterday. In English we did spellings, a lot. We did PE in teh afternoon, then we went to the library. When we got back to the classroom Mr Wilcox read us a story.  Before we went home, we played a game. We rated this week 8/10

  • Delayed Homework

    Published 03/11/17, by Sam Wilcox

    Apologies, but homework will be given out on Monday. Mathletics has been assigned.  It looks different to how we did it in class. When you are working out your maths problems, use a pen and paper and a method that you feel comfortable with. 

    This Week

    Thursday was a great day. The class took what could have been boring lessons (division and noun phrases) and apporached it with such enthusiasm that the lesson was fun. 

    Up and Coming Event

    I would like to enter the whole class into a handball tournament.  We want to aim for 4 teams. The date for this will be 12/12/17, 15:30 - 17:30. Letters will be coming out later.  If you would like to help, then please let me know when you reply with the letters.
