Well there goes Term 4! Tigers have been incredibly busy yet again with learning and lots of fun-filled activities. We started off the term with our new topic, Macbeth. After learning a little about the play, we wrote some atmospheric descriptions of the ‘Wild and Windy Heath Somewhere in Scotland’ where Macbeth and Banquo met the three witches. I’ve included one of the descriptions for you to read in the gallery below.
We were also lucky enough to have a visit from Sixth Sense Theatre Company who treated us to a play all about Macbeth. It was brilliant, very informative but most of all very enjoyable. Mrs. Whistler asked us to do a piece of homework based on Shakespeare and his plays. We produced a wide variety of work, including posters, paintings, books and even sculptures. I have added some pictures of the work for you to enjoy to the gallery below.
As a finale to our topic about WW2, we enjoyed some ‘cooking on rations’ with jaguar class, we made chocolate oat cookies and carrot cookies. Afterwards, we evaluated the appearance, taste and texture of our cookies. They were delicious, so we especially enjoyed the tasting part!
Charlotte, Cody and Louise represented Y6 at the WHF Science Festival on 18th March, Mrs. Woodcock said that they did a brilliant job with their presentation and did Haydon Wick proud! The theme of the festival was ‘Eco’, so before they went, Tigers and jaguars spent an exciting afternoon trying to create enough electricity to light an LED light using lemons, limes, potatoes, apples and oranges.
Every year, many of us at Haydon Wick participate in the Swindon Music Festival which this year was directed by our own Mrs. Whistler! 33 Year 4, 5 and 6s travelled to the Oasis Centre on Thursday 17th March to sing their hearts out! Mrs. Coate, Mrs. Winn and Mrs. Adams came along with us to enjoy the songs and join in. Mrs. Whistler was very proud of us all and said that we behaved impeccably and sang beautifully.
Sport Relief Day on Friday 18th March saw us walking/running/scooting around the track for our ‘Sport Relief Mile’, followed by a delicious banana or berry smoothie. Yummy!
On the last Wednesday of term, we all participated in a fantastic Sports Events Day which was thoroughly enjoyed by all. We all had the chance to enjoy a variety of sport activities, including games and quizzes. The day was all thanks to our PE specialist Miss Sparkes.
The last day of term was massively busy! First we had a visit from Storybox Theatre, this year performing The Snow Queen and in the evening, many children returned to perform in our annual Spring Concert. The concert was a huge success, proving just how much talent we have here at Haydon Wick. A fantastic evening was had by all.
So, onwards to Term 5. Another whirlwind of learning and fun.
