Welcome to Oak!
Spring Term News
Can you believe that we are already at the end of Spring term? Where does time go? It has been a very busy term and we have covered two topics so far. Shakespeare was an amazing topic and the children thoroughly enjoyed learning all about Macbeth with his trials and tribulations. It was all very dramatic and the children had lots of fun acting out the scene between the witches, Banquo and Macbeth. From this, they went on to write some incredible pieces of descriptive writing. I am positive that both the girls and boys loved it due to all the ‘blood and gore’ of the battle scene! I know that they enjoyed using pastels to create the atmospheric images to go with their Literacy work. We have now moved on to the Ancient Greeks and once again, the children have immersed themselves within this history topic. I am always very proud of how they transfer their love of history to their work outside of school. None more so than the small school choir event recently in Carlisle. Well done everyone.
Here at Kirkbride –as you know- we are very good at participating in sporting events. This term has seen us take part in tag-rugby, netball and the football tournament for both the boys and girls of Oak class. The children always love taking part in these tournaments and their passion makes for a great game (whatever it may be) We also, as a school, supported red nose day and a lot of fun was had by all and a significant amount of money was raised. Finally, I am finding it hard to believe that we are going into our Summer term.
