Years 5 and 6 pupils attending school on Thursday 11th February thoroughly enjoyed their music lesson delivered via Google Classrooms by Mrs Phillips. They learnt through song place names in the UK which originated from Viking times and tapped out rhythms of the song.
6Y reminded us of some of the events of the last decade including some dance crazes that might be better forgotten about! They also shared some of their own 10 year challenge photos showing how they have changed over the last decade. Well done to the children for an entertaining and enjoyable assembly!
Year 6 travelled to Hilltop (Norwich) for a week of OAA, this included tree climbing, zip lining, abseiling, rock climbing, orienteering, a beach walk and lots more activities. This was a fantastic opportunity for the children, challenging them to come out of their comfort zone to problem solve, work as a team and to take on leadership roles.
6Y performed their last ever assembly today. They showcased all they had learnt about MATHS!
As it is was 6G’s last ever class assembly, they took control of all television stations in an attempt to show off how amazingly clever they are.
Twenty six choir members from Years 5 and 6 went to the Parish Centre to visit the Dementia Café today. They entertained everyone with their beautiful Christmas Carol sing-a-long!
What a wonderful concert, thank you to all the musicians and soloists who worked so hard. Well done to all of you!
A fantastic display of singing dancing and acting from our Year 6 pupils in this Year’s Production!
6G’s assembly was all about Chinese New Year New Year which is currently being celebrated. This year is the year of the dog. They showed off their many talents including, dancing, music and singing. We hope the 6G parents enjoyed it!
The members of the choir from Years 5 & 6 visited the Dementia Cafe run by volunteers at the Parish Centre. The audience really enjoyed the carols and traditional Christmas songs the choir sang so beautifully! Thank you choir, we were very proud of your performance.
6Y presented their various gifts and talents to us in their assembly; they reminded us that a positive attitude helps us achieve more. Well done!
6G gave a powerful and reflective assembly on the topic of World War 1. What will you think about on Remembrance Day?
Our instrumentalists from Years 5 & 6 played to the whole school and their parents. They gave a beautiful performance and amazed us all with their wonderful talents!
6G took over the TV channels and showed us all they have learnt this year. We had parents vs children Mastermind, Match of the Day and it was very interesting to view some of the Apps they have created for Smartphones. Well done 6G, we hope you enjoyed your last ever class assembly!!!
Class 6Y took us to the jungle with an “I’m a class 6Y member, get me out of here” special! They showed us how much they have learned as a team in their seven years at St Monica’s and we look forward to seeing more of their talents this last term. We hope the families from Class 6Y enjoyed it.
Singing Playgrounds has come to St Monica’s. Thirty children from KS2 attended training at Keys Meadow Primary on 27th February. They then helped another 24 children to learn to be Song leaders here in school. Finally, we took the games out into the playgrounds, and hope to run sessions once a week. Our favourite games are “Jump Jim Joe”, “Bungalow”, “John Kanakanaka”, “Here Comes Sally” and “Tanczymy Labada”.
Year 6 had great fun today dressed as Vikings! They learnt a lot during the workshops and generally enjoyed themselves.
Another full night of entertainment – Well Done to all the Pupils who performed tonight! The standard was impressive and the judges had to make some difficult decisions choosing winners. Luckily the staff performance was not judged! Thank you to all the staff who helped to organise this event. Nearly £740 was raised in ticket sales which will be put towards buying resources for the children.
Well done to Years 3 and 6 for a lovely Christmas Concert. We hope the parents enjoyed it, and thank you for your generosity in the retiring collection. These photos are of their dress rehearsal to the school.
6G performed the Shakespeare classic ‘The Tempest’. They used both modern and Shakespearean language to show off how much they have learnt this half term. We hope the 6G parents enjoyed it!
