Each week we have a ukulele lesson with Mr Eady. As well as learning to play a range of songs we also learn many interesting facts about music.

Victorian Photos

We had our photograph taken through an 1880s camera lens. We were surprised by how still you had to be or you would just be a blur!

Sculpture

We looked at how emotion and action can be depicted through the simple drawing of stick men. We then used the work of Alberto Giacometti to create our own sculpture with foil.

Can you work out which emotions or actions we have depicted?

We worked really hard to produce our final piece in our dance lessons.

We hope you enjoy watching as much as we enjoyed performing!

Our Visit to the Coal Mining Museum

We had a great day at The National Coal Mining Museum. We met Sally Fletcher who told us all about her life a young girl working down the mine with her family. We had a go at working together to get the coal - it wasn't as easy as we thought! We also enjoyed an underground tour where we had a taste of what the conditions would have been like for the Victorian miners.

Christmas Dinner

We wore our Christmas jumpers and enjoyed a delicious Christmas dinner!
