Article 29: Education should help you develop your talents.
This half term Y5 have been chosen to work with the World- famous Halle Orchestra. This is a
fantastic opportunity as we are one of only four schools in Greater Manchester who are taking part.
The project is a creative arts program, which explores environmental issues facing planet Earth and
considers what we (humans) are doing to try to remedy the situation.
We have been taking part in a variety of creative workshops with Halle musicians and dancers from
the Royal Northern ballet. Our class have been using the classical piece of music, ‘Symphony No.9,
From the New World,’ by Antonin Dvorak as inspiration for creating a musical composition and
choreographing a dance routine.
All our hard work will reach a climax on 20 th March, when we travel to St Peters in Ancoats to take
part in a concert with the musicians and dancers.
World Book Day
On Thursday 2nd March it was World Book Day.
The children got to dress up as their favourtie book character or to come to school
in their pyjamas.
All the childfen in school got to do some work around a book called
Quest by Aaron Becker.
In year 5 we thought about lots of different quests that people went on and then all the children had to come up with a quest that they could write about. The children had some fantastic ideas for their quest and have each made their own book called Quest.
Each one is completely different.

Whilst a number of our teammates were at Ghyll Head... the rest of us had an amazing time, doing some poetry individually as well as collectively. We looked at a piece of work by 'Pie Corbett' then adapted his ideas to produce a version of our own with a unique spin. It was great letting our creative juices flow.
