BOATS…REVENGE…SPRITE….TREES…….WEATHER…SORCERY… MAGIC….BOOK OF SPELLS
How many words can you make that describe what happens in this play with the Scrabble Letters?
The objective is to get a fresh look at a Shakespearean play, using visual imagery of pictures and illustrations to gain an insight into the descriptive words surrounding characters and actions.
Recently we have been focusing on cyber bullying. We have looked at the risks of a certain site in particular, called askfm which we have asked to be blocked at school. If you have any worries about cyber bullying please approach us we don’t bite:)!

“ARE WE THERE YET….?”
These famous words, spoken by students around the world, were used to describe a picture in an Art Activity during Breakfast Club.
Sitting in pairs, back to back, the girls started their art works using only a verbal description from their partner holding the picture, who they could not see. Using only a vocabulary consisting of shapes, colours and lines, the girls’ coloured pencils flew across the page whipping up delicious shapes in 10 min. A little bit of English and Art, mixed with visual thinking in Maths, to start the morning.
Anyone for a cuppa of smiles………..?!!!
“THE SURREY WITH THE FRINGE ON TOP….”
The delicious flavour of a Wild West musical, mixed with musical notes and phrases, was served using a BINGO format, for our recent Breakfast Club activity. With quarter and half notes, treble clefs and dynamics, the girls devoured musical knowledge while the stirring sounds of “Oklahoma” played in the background.A good way to integrate different types of music across the curriculum.
