Welcome to Team Walliams Activities
We have been very busy making preparations, in Team Walliams, for Christmas. We have been practising our Christmas play, this year we are performing Christmas with the Aliens. The children have had lines to learn as well as all the songs but as they are all superstars, they are all doing so well. Here’s a few preview pictures of some of them in their costumes on the stage.
Children in Need
Team Walliams all look fabulous and spotty today for Children in Need.
During Anti-bullying week, the children worked hard to make some very eye catching posters. They watched a video from Andy and the Oddsocks which reminded us all that we are all unique but equal. We may look, sound or act differently but that is who we are and everyone needs to be respected and accepted.
In English we made predictions about our new class book, without learning the title of the book. We made predictions about the plot, characters and themes.
After learning the title we wrote our own blurbs based on what we were think will happen in the story.
In another lesson in English we have been working on our class text The King Who Banned the Dark. We worked together to come up with some fantastic descriptive words and phrases to describe the king now he has succeeded in banning the Dark. Some of our favourite words were manipulative, maniacal, devious, sly, cunning and obnoxious. After, we started writing newspaper reports all about the kings plan and how the people reacted.
Today we welcomed some firefighters into school. They came to tell us all how to stay safe on firework night and what we could do in case of an accident. The children then got to help the firemen to fire the water hoses.
Topic today has had us exploring Eastern Europe. We have used atlases to find countries, their capital cities and the surrounding oceans and seas. We then found out interesting facts about some of the countries.
There were some super scary costumes at the Halloween disco this year. The children did some great dancing and enjoyed hot dogs and pizza.
We had a special visit from the author Adam Bushnell. He inspired the children to write their own super scary stories about an old witch who lived in a creepy cabin deep in the woods.
Wow, Team Walliams gave us all a fabulous performance at the Harvest Festival at St Thomas’s church. We heard poems, facts around harvest and some wonderful singing. This was all shared to our friends, families and the local community.
In addition to reading about Odysseus meeting the Cyclops (in English), we have created collages from a scene in the story.
In Maths Year 4 have been looking at number lines to 10,000 and Year 5 have been working on numbers to 1 million. Well done everyone.
For World Mental Health Day, Team Walliams have talked about different ways to keep your mental heath healthy. How you can also help others with their mental health and also designed and created some beautiful T shirts promoting good mental health.
Tag Rugby, after working on the necessary skills needed for this sport, we enjoyed a great game. Most children displayed excellent team skills, tried their best and enjoyed the game. Well done Team Walliams.
In PE we have been learning the skills required to play cricket. Also in celebration of the Euro Football Championships, we held our own football tournaments in school.
