The spider whistled “Woof woof!”

The octopus screamed “Hee haw!”

The poison dart frog screeched loudly.

The pig roared.

The tiger bellowed “Quack, quack.”

The dog mooed.

The crab whispered, “Hisssssssss.”

The gorilla shouted, “Oink, oink!”

The great white shark meowed.

The python said “Cock a doodle doo!”

Royal Philharmonic Orchestra Trip

Years 3 and 4 had a fantastic trip to London to see a concert put on by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. After enjoying a picnic lunch in Jubilee Park overlooking the Thames we headed in to Festival Hall for the eagerly anticipated musical feast. The concert was based on the music of the many varied countries visited by the world-famous orchestra. As well as hearing some well-known classical pieces being expertly played, we joined in with the concert by singing along to one song about being lost on the Paris Metro.

Outdoor Learning update

Over the past few weeks, Year 3 have become a tremendous gardening work force. 

Firstly, we have begun to landscape our Outdoor Learning Site using bark to create pathways that will absorb the rain. We have also been focusing re-planting 100 baby trees that we won from the Woodland Trust around Holme Grange School. Finally, we took a well-deserved break to observe thousands of tadpoles hatching from their frog spawn protective coating in our school pond.
