This week has been our Book Theme Week. The children have participated in lots of lovely activities including a forest schools session where they made a story setting for a stickman, designing underpants for aliens and a dance session focusing on dinosaurs. The children and staff all looked fantastic dressed as their favourite story character on World Book Day and the book sale after school raised £61.50 for the Cambodian library boat - thank you!

This week the EYFS children found dinosaur footprints and eggs! They have had a very exciting week learning about dinosaurs. The Year 1 children are very excited to begin their Super Hero theme and have listened to the story Supertato! The Year 2 children have listened to the story of Zog by Julia Donaldson and have very much enjoyed writing instructions on how to train a dragon. We are looking forward to our book theme week next week. Don’t forget to dress up as your favourite story character on Thursday.

This week the children have all enjoyed Live Art workshops which are organised by York Arts Education and are led by experienced dancers, artists and musicians. Year 2 very much enjoyed creating dances inspired by the music Zadok the Priest. The dances included using their bodies to make Westminster Abbey including the gargoyles! Year 1 participated in a workshop entitled Picture the Planets where they used lots of different materials to make art work inspired by Space. The children in EYFS enjoyed a music and dance workshop based on the story Where the Wild things are.
