Capping off the busy week we all experienced a magic/Road safety performance that was a combination not to be missed! The ever present Isle of Wight Celebrity magician David Randini wowed with well perfected illusions combined with a hard hitting message. An interactive show was enjoyed by all of Key Stage 2 with some lucky enough to walk away with a balloon styled souvenir (as pictured below)
As a class we were motivated to develop and perform some devised drama around the message of STOP, LOOK and LISTEN the tableaux were particularly fantastic! What Talent, some drama in the future I think!
Last week was again another busy one with many events and opportunities for innovative learning. One of the highlights was Greg Chapman’s Condensed Victorian History performance. Very well received by all the performance was a mix of interactive displays, hilarity and in-depth Victorian knowledge.
Below is one of the images from the afternoon – demonstrating the importance of the Rifle to the British armed forces and the growth of the British Empire.
What a great time was had by all during the previous weekend! Following our calm journey from Ryde to Victoria Coach Station we walked past some famous landmarks and had a good look at the amazing Harrods Christmas window display – What a long train!
As we arrived we saw a fantastic winter-wonderland located on the courtyard outside of History Museum. After a short wait we walked inside to see the giant dinosaur model.
Now tiring it was time to depart for the science museum and a night of endless fun!
On arrival we were no longer Brandy Class from Wroxall Primary but now the famous ‘Purple Detectives’! Then to our camp areas – The boys led by myself were sleeping among the metal exhibits and the girls on the opposite side of the huge hall. A camping mat and sleeping bag was all we needed to make our camp homely. Off to the first activity making an amplifier! From a few everyday objects all of us made a homemade amp!
Some of them may even work!
Excitedly we moved to our second activity – Fox or Lion was the question! With some complicated rules and highly competitive groups we were joint last after three rounds- but with true Wroxall grit, determination and skill we fought hard and succeed in gaining three individual skill awards and becoming the group champions!
Then off to our last activity – Glorious blood. What an activity – filled with blood, explosions, fireballs, quizzes, running, heart-beats and Plasma. Jake even was picked to join in!
Sorry about the blur Jake – I think you were moving so fast! And so to sleep, a peaceful night was had by all
The next day was an I-max spectacular:
Then to the shop and back on our way to the Island!
What an experience with such a fantastic bunch of children!
Thank you all year 5 and your brilliant parents,
Mr Walker-Green and Mrs Gray
On the 21st January Greg Chapman and his team of puppet friends from ‘Condensed Histories’ will be in the school performing shows all about the Victorians. Greg is a writer and performer of the Condensed Histories books, shows and web series which put a fresh and fun take on history. During these shows Greg will be talking about Queen Victoria, talking with a Chimney Sweep’s Apprentice and a Victorian School Mistress, as he takes the students back to the Victorian Era! The shows will also include Greg’s usual mix of history, comedy, juggling and magic to make a memorable show for the students, while helping them remember some of the key facts about Victorian Britain!
