Singing Playgrounds 2

On Friday 17th January the Year 4 children, some parent helpers and I attended an exciting and unusual event at Middlewich High School. This event was a training event, supporting our Year 4 cohort to become Junior Song Leaders on our playground. The project provided a framework for modern variations on more traditional, musical playground games and aims to strengthen peer relationships encourage children to mix socially and above all have fun to taking part in something new together.

After the training, the Year 4 children came away 'fired up' and keen to put into practise their new repertoire of singing games, eager to begin as soon as possible -with a trial Monday Morning! Stickers were given out to those brave non-Year-4 children who got involved with something completely new to them.

So far ,it is proving to be fun, if a little infectious — indeed on our trial run, even the teachers joined in! What's more I found myself singing the 'Bungalow Song' (if you don't know what it is, I am sure you will soon) to myself on my way home!

To the children reading this, lookout for the "Sing Stop" next week.
To the adults, I anticipate many of you will start to recognise the songs soon...
Miss Johnson.

The children learned how to use basic shapes in order to more accurately sketch the head and body of a horse, and, later, used this knowledge to contribute to a collaborative piece of art commemorating the part that horses played in World War...

Our KS2 children visited Malbank School to represent Audlem St James in the sports hall athletics tournament.

There was so many events to compete in, including hurdles, relays, speed bounce, javelin, vertical jump, long jump and sprints. Our...
