ESSP Swimming Gala – William Brookes

Ten Pupils from Scorpions and Fireflies took part in the East Shropshire Sports Partnership swimming gala at William Brookes School this Thursday.

 

All the swimmers showed fantastic determination, team-spiritedness and confidence in helping Team Brown Clee to eventually finish in an incredible second place overall – an especially impressive feat given the small size of our school!

Class Challenge

How far can you walk or run whilst you are at home? You could run laps of the garden or a route around the house. Send us the distance you cover and we will add it to the class total. I wonder whether we will finish our second lap around the Shropshire border during half term…

I look forward to being back in class with you all again soon.

Best wishes,

Mrs Heath

Art in Dragonflies

We have been looking at the work of landscape artist William Heaton Cooper.  We have learned about using one point perspective in our drawing and have used colour to add perspective to our paintings. We have learned that we can use lighter to darker shades to show perspective.

We laid our paintings out and had a critique session. We discussed the use of colour and shared our observations with each other.

 

Happy New Year!

Happy new year Dragonflies! I hope that you had a super time with your families over the Christmas break and am looking forward to seeing you all back in school tomorrow!

This term our topic is Sensational Shropshire! Take a look at the page below to find out more about our learning:

Our P.E. days remain the same this term, so please come into school in your P.E kits on Tuesdays and Fridays.

Swimming

Our last swimming session for this term will be on Tuesday 7th December.

Please Note: this is different to the original plan as we had to miss a session earlier in the term. 

We have really enjoyed our sessions and we would like to thank the staff at the Leisure Centre in Ludlow for accommodating all of us!

Shared reading: Fireflies and Scorpions

Here are some photos from the latest shared reading session between Fireflies and Scorpions.

A note about swimming

Please wear PE kits on swimming days

On the original notice about swimming sessions at the beginning of term I had asked children to come in their school uniforms every Tuesday to go to the pool.

However, after discussion with Mr Harley we have decided that it would be better for children to come in their school PE kits.

Many thanks,

Mrs Heath
