Wow! What an end to the half term! The school council arranged a fantastic Talent Show and many children in MG shared their talents.
Oakley entertained us all on the drums; Anna L played an excellent piece on her violin; Anna R was superb on the piano; Hannah M & Jessica created an amusing short film which was screened to the school; Lucy played her guitar in the school rock band; Hannah S and Naomi shared their art and Eddie entertained us to a song and a dance. What a talented bunch!
Hannah won the art competition and arrangements will be made for her artwork to go on show.
Eddie won the dance category and, reportedly, brought tears to the eyes of Mr Burford.
Here are pictures of our brilliant bunch.
In Literacy we have been working on poetry and the class have created some fantastic odes. I hope that we will have an opportunity to type these up after half term but here are four that deserve special recognition as they were shared with Mr Burford. Bradley and Kaylee find Literacy quite challenging at times but both produced a really good poem independently.
The Cute Puppy
The fluffy soft fur
And short fat tail
The floppy ears
Your chubby cheeks
You are beautiful
I never want to
We will have
A fun walk
O wonderful book
You are everything to me
The way you tell me stories
Your stories tickle my tongue
You are a book
A wonderful book.
Ode to Chocolate
Oh mighty chocolate
My heart aches without you
You are so heavenly
And we were definitely meant to be
I admire your glorious decoration
With your sweet and appetising taste
Your luscious fillings are so divine
It is obviously true that you were made by cherubs
Everyone should bow down and adore you
For all that it’s worth I would be
Your humble and loyal servant forever more
By Hannah M
My door! My glorious door!
How I love the curve of your handle
And how smoothly you glide open
The imperfections of your wood that make you complete
I cherish your lock
The click it makes when I turn the lock on and off
I still remember the day I bough you
The trip to B & Q
Searching the shelves for a door
Then I saw you
Angels dancing around you
So easy to set up
Just a few screws through your latches
Your wonderful latches
I shall never swing another door
Lock another door
And never, ever paint another
My wonderful divine beloved door
