AUTUMN TERM 2017
Oggy, Oggy, Oggy - Chiefs, Chiefs, Chiefs!
On Friday the 24th November, we were lucky enough to receive a visit from Jack Maunder (professional rugby player) and The Great British Sports Show. The day began with rugby skills through target practice and team games - these were lots of fun!
Jack Maunder then spoke to students about his role and gave them an opportunity to ask questions. After that he visited each class (this was really exciting) and even signed photographs for us!
In Haytor Class, students competed their -ologies this week and they look amazing:
Students have been imitating the Dragonology text in a variety of ways this week..
Designing the layout of a page in keeping with Dragonology
Drawing a dragon eye using sketching pencils to show tones.
Creating a dragon's eye using clay
Working with a partner to design a Dragonology page for 'A Dragon's Life'
A huge thank you to all my super students this week for the hard work and dedication to learning you have shown. I am very proud of the progression made by all children, now is the time to relax and recover ready for next half term.
