This week in Year 5 (w/b 25th Feb)

A busy week this week with our Magic Show for parents and the trip to the Anvil. The children thoroughly enjoyed showing off their “magical skills”. Thank you to everyone who supported the children with props and costumes as well as those who joined us on the day.
The children have spent the last few weeks learning the songs for the Merlin mini opera. It was wonderful for them to then have the opportunity to perform them with a full orchestra. Please do ask them about all the instruments they heard and the musical excerpts played for them. These included pieces by Elgar and Prokofiev as well as the Dr Who and Bond theme tunes.
Next week Year 5 will start to create their own stop gap animations on a magical theme, they have already started to plan these. It is World Book Day on Thursday 7th March, we shall be focusing on one book throughout the week.
