Year 6 - Oyster
A perfect day for a BBQ!
Bollywood Dancing Class Assembly
On Friday 9th February, Year 6 had the whole school dancing in their seats. Inspired by their India topic, the children performed a series of energetic group pieces before an impressive whole class dance to Jai Ho. We hope that you enjoyed the show!
WW2 Living Wax Museum
The Oyster Class WW2 Living Wax Museum was a great success! On Thursday 30th November, the class transformed themselves into important fugures from WW2 and delivered two minute presentations to their visitors. They did all the work themselves: display boards, costumes, presentations and an electric switch for visitors to press in order to bring them to life. Parents, staff and children loved it - Mrs Bishop said, "It's the best thing I have ever seen!"
Here are the fabulous exhibits!
The Oysters had a fantastic visit to Newhaven Fort on Friday 22nd September. It was a perfect start to our World War Two topic and the sun shone all day long!
After weeks of practising, Oyster Class and Turtle Class finally performed The Tempest on Thursday 20th July 2017. It was a sensational show and the audience thoroughly enjoyed it! The DVD is now on sale in the office. Well done to all the children for their hard work and effort; here are a few pictures from our amazing production:
