Virtual Stories

Posted by nwyatt on Tuesday Oct 17, 2017 Under Uncategorized

Dear Team Kestrel,

Today, the amazing Year 4 started publishing their own virtual stories using iMovie on the iPads.

They recorded their voices as a performance, and used screen shots from the Epic Citadel app to provide the imagery. Children are currently working on their own sound effects and background music to enhance the stories.

I can’t wait to see the final finished product, and they will be uploaded onto this blog as time allows. I hope you can control your excitement!

As always, thanks for your continued support,

Mr. W

 

UPDATE: We are waiting on our space allocation on the blog to increase, and this should happen over the next week or so. Once this has been done, the videos will be uploaded.

The Dragon’s Lair at the Bishop’s Palace

Posted by nwyatt on Tuesday Oct 10, 2017 Under Uncategorized

Dear Team Kestrel,

On Monday, we went on our first school trip to the Bishop’s Palace in Wells to complete a quest as ‘Tracker Wizards’ and find the Dragon’s Lair. Dumbledore informed us that a dragon was creating havoc in a nearby town, and that we were the only wizards who could complete the quest and stop it. Thankfully, for everyone’s sake, we succeeded!

This has provided with us with lots of inspiration to write our own mini quest stories which will all be available to view soon.

We also had chance to explore the inside of the Bishop’s home, try on some clothes, create a stain glass window in teams, and we also had chance to quickly walk around the cathedral before we boarded the bus for home.

A great day was had by all (especially me!) and the children were enthused and imaginative from the first moment we arrived.

Please see below for some photos of the day,

As always, thanks for your continued support,

Mr. W

Our Wand Projects

Posted by nwyatt on Tuesday Oct 10, 2017 Under Uncategorized

Dear Team Kestrel,

At the moment, as part of our wider topic which includes Art and DT, children have been designing and manufacturing their own wands. (Although, of course, the wand chooses the wizard, not the other way round!)

The wands have also benefited the writing of the class, as important and specific details of the wands have been used when writing quest stories, and provided extra juicy details for the reader.

See below for some photos of the early manufacturing phase.

As always, thanks for your continued support,

Mr. W

Owl Visit

Posted by nwyatt on Tuesday Oct 3, 2017 Under Uncategorized

Dear Team Kestrel,

Today was a fantastic day!

We all were given an owl talk and the opportunity to stroke an owl from Avon Owls. This fed very nicely into our Harry Potter topic, where we were able to write some fantastic descriptions of an owl which will then help us write a small story towards the end of the week.

Due to the sensitive nature of the owls, children had to sit in complete silence for around an hour, and each team member from Kestrel Class did their bit to ensure that the owls were comfortable the whole time. Their behaviour was exemplary.

Please see below for some photos of the session.

As always, thanks for your continued support.

Mr. W
