This year, the jubilee was a very special celebration as we celebrated the queen having her 70th year on the throne! That’s a whole 7 decades of the queen WOW. In true spirit we had a royal jubilee day in school, it started with the royal variety show, where the talent of the school were all competing to be Queens or Kings of the school. And can we just say St Augustine’s has SO much talent. In year 4 we had dancers, singers, pianists, and footballers, even Miss Lamb gave it a go! But it all had to come down to the final 3. And the dancers came second!! We then finished the day with a royal picnic eating the queen’s favourite food and showing our best dance moves.
This year for Eid we had a whole school celebration, and we all dressed up in some of our best attire. We got into true spirits and really enjoyed the celebrations. We ate fantastic food and did some dancing, we even played past the parcel and there were many fantastic prizes to be won.
Eid Mubarak to everyone who celebrated the day!
For History, this half term we have been learning all about the Anglo Saxons We learned that the Anglo Saxons lived in small villages made out of wood and stone. For our History project, we were given the task to make an Anglo Saxon village, the only materials given to us were cardboard, paper, lolly pop sticks, and paint. We went outside to collect some sticks and rocks too. We hope you enjoyed our final piece!
On Thursday the 17th of March, we all went to visit Manchester Art Gallery, from the moment we walked into the gallery we were all amazed by the amazing interior and the fantastic pieces of work. The first picture we seen was ‘The Chariot Race’ we all had so many questions about this mesmerising piece of art. We finished the trip by creating our own pieces of art, we all had such an amazing day and wish to visit the gallery again.
Friday the 18th was Red Nose Day! Red Nose Day is a day to raise money for the charity Comic Relief which supports people who are living incredibly tough lives. Here at St Augustine’s, we wanted to help raise money, by dressing in red clothes. We all donated £1 for this to happen. Mr. Warren took us outside to take part in some competitive sports, we all had so much fun!
Today is World Book Day! We are celebrating 25 years of world book day, this year’s theme is 'you are a reader'. We started the day off by parading our outfits off and showing how amazing we all look. We have enjoyed our 'stop everything and read' and our work book day activities. This week in school we have created fox masks, as our class book is Fantastic Mr Fox. We hope you love our outfits and masks!
