The children had a fantastic time today at the Egyptian dance workshop, lead by a dance specialist called Lorraine. The children were able to listen to some Egyptian music, learn about the instruments and were even able to play them. They learnt some key dance moves and wore costumes and scarves to add to the effect! It was great to see all the children having fun, being creative and enjoying their learning! Thank you to the PTA for funding the workshop!
Thank you to all the parents and grandparents for coming to our museum today! The children really enjoyed showing you their work and their rap!

A toothy afternoon!
On Friday April 29th 2016, a dental hygeinist came to our class to tell us all about looking after our teeth and showed us how to clean them properly.
We placed a special sweet containing disclosing dye inside our mouths, which showed us where the plaque was on our teeth! Some of us had patches of pink which indicated new and fresh plaque. Some of us had little blue areas which showed older plaque! The sweet tasted like berries and made our tongues change colour too! We cleaned our teeth in a circular fashion for 2 minutes before rinsing. Our teeth and mouths felt very clean and fresh after all that!!
We learned some very important facts!
We listened carefully and followed instructions!
We had lots of fun!
What a great afternoon!
Woodpeckers had a fantastic visit to Norwich Castle on Tuesday 19th April for a Viking Day. It was entitled 'How to train your Dragon.'
We had such a great day learning so many things about the Vikings and it was a brilliant way to start our topic.
We took part in a drama performance with a storyteller, handled lots of artefacts with a trader and made brooches with a craftsperson. Fortunately we also had a little time to explore the gallery and had the opportunity to try on Viking costumes and pose in the longship.
LOTS OF LEARNING!
INTERACTIVE AND FUN!
