Monday 5th November 2018
Today, Scyamore started finding out about life during WW1 and why 2018 is such an important year for remembering, being the centenary of the Armistice in 1918. All three year 5 and 6 classes were visited by Corporal Head (a current serving member of the military) who spoke to them about the reality of life in the trenches, the bravery of young soldiers and the role of women and animals in the war. We will continue our focus on the 'Great War' for the rest of this week.
Poetry by heart, Thursday 6th September
We challenged ourselves to try and learn this poem in our first poetry assembly with Redwood and Willow today!
On the Ning Nang Nong
Where the Cows go Bong!
and the monkeys all say BOO!
There's a Nong Nang Ning
Where the trees go Ping!
And the tea pots jibber jabber joo.
On the Nong Ning Nang
All the mice go Clang
And you just can't catch 'em when they do!
So its Ning Nang Nong
Cows go Bong!
Nong Nang Ning
Trees go ping
Nong Ning Nang
The mice go Clang
What a noisy place to belong
is the Ning Nang Ning Nang Nong!!
The sycamore tree has appeared in both religious texts and other forms of literature. Since ancient history, there have been images of the sycamore depicted in many forms. No matter what your beliefs stem from, it's clear that the existence of a sycamore tree in a text can mean a number of different things, but ultimately, it's a symbol of strength, protection, reliability and clarity. Sycamore Class is a Year 5/6 class and is taught by Miss Stone and Mrs Phillips.
