Anti Bulling Week

Parliament Week


This week marks Parliament Week across the country. In Kennick Class we linked this to our work on The Gunpowder Plot and discussed why we have a parliament in England now. We used our knowledge of capital cities to remember where the Houses of Parliament are in London and the other UK cities. We also explored the idea of debating and thought about the rules we have in our country and why they are important.

We hope you like our dance! We enjoyed being Snowmen like the ones in the story

Dance Festival

Becky Mason from South Dartmoor came into our school and taught us a firework dance! The children had a lot of fun and enjoyed being fireworks!

As part of our RE work we have been finding out how Hindu people celebrate Diwali and created our own Diva lamps and celebrated with songs

The children made clay Diva pots a few weeks ago but decorated them today. They used a base coat then did finer detail using another colour and made sure it was a Rangoli style pattern that they practised on paper earlier in the week. They look amazing and very colourful!!

Willow Lantern Making


The children used willow, sticky tape and tissue paper to make lanterns in small groups. They worked together as a team to carefully make the square base shape, then add upright sticks. Finally adding tissue paper and lots of glue!!! It was a messy but fun time!
