Gloam Virtual Stories

Posted by nwyatt on Tuesday Dec 5, 2017 Under Uncategorized

Dear Team Kestrel,

Recently, children used the following short film ‘Gloam’ by David Elwell and Gareth Hughes (see below) to write a descriptive piece of writing about the wonderful creature inside the film.

Children were extremely creative, passionate and meticulous with their writing and have produced some of the best work I’ve seen from this class so far this year.

All of our writing has an audience and a purpose for doing it, and this piece was no different. Children turned their compositions into fantastic virtual stories using stills from the film, some images of their final published piece of writing and a fantastic performing voice!

Please see below and have a listen to them. If you think they’re pretty good, feel free to leave a comment below, and I’ll be sure to read them out in class to provide some pats on the back and motivation.

Nice work everyone!

As always, thanks for your continued support,

Mr. W

Parent Gallery

Posted by nwyatt on Friday Dec 1, 2017 Under Uncategorized

Dear Team Kestrel,

See below for some photos from our fabulous parent gallery! Children created everything, presented everything, and guided parents around the exhibits.

There were positive comments from all angles, especially about the virtual media which will be uploaded within a week.

I couldn’t have been prouder of the children, and if they produce work of the same quality throughout the year, they are going to have a fantastic Year 4.

As always, thanks for your continued support,

Mr. W

PS I asked them to have ‘professional faces’ in the photos. See if you can spot any…Clearly professional people look glum!

Giant’s Hand Investigation

Posted by nwyatt on Friday Dec 1, 2017 Under Uncategorized

Dear Team Kestrel,

As a recent maths investigation, I asked the children to create the proportions of a giant based on only the hand print I had given them. They scaled this up and made it perfectly, but what was really pleasing was the way in which they grouped up and collaborated on the task with no problems at all. Great attitude from everyone.

See below for photos.

As always, thanks for you continued support,

Mr. W
