RE - singing songs

posted 16 Oct 2018, 07:49 by Kathryn Davis

In RE this week we have been looking at religious songs. We sang a Christian and an Islamic song about God as a creator. The children then wrote their own song about a creator, added some musical instruments and performed it to the class. We have some very talented song writers!

In RE this term we are learning about symbols and beliefs across a whole range of religions. We have been thinking about celebrations that we enjoy and which symbols we associate with the celebrations. 


Y4/5 Forest School Learning

Y4 and Y5 Forest School Programme 2017-18
All children in Y4 and Y5 have experienced a block of Forest School sessions this year.  Activities included making wooden jewellery, fire-lighting, shelter making, outdoor art, lashings and using tools such as bowsaws and loppers.

As you can see from the photos below, different groups had very different weather experiences, but all developed skills and knowledge, as well as increasing their resilience, resourcefulness, creativity and kindness.

Next year the programme will be extended to all year groups.



Y45H - French and Music!

posted 11 Jul 2018, 02:58 by Richard Hanks

This term Y45H have been learning to play and sing a french song by Manu Chao called Je ne t'aime plus.

Children learn the words and had a go at translating them, it wasn't as easy as it looked! And, despite the jaunty music, we found it was a little depressing!

Je ne t'aime plus… mon amour
Je ne t'aime plus…tous les jours

I do not love you anymore… my love
I do not love you anymore…everyday

We also needed a lot of practice to get the rhythm, tempo and song structure so that we could perform in Celebration assembly. Take a look at a quick video we made:

Refugee Week Assembly

posted 23 Jun 2018, 01:39 by Richard Hanks   [ updated 23 Jun 2018, 01:44 ]

Dore Primary is a Rights Respecting School, we put rights at the heart of what we do. We understand our rights and also recognise and support others who may not have access to all the rights set out in the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.

This week's Year 4/5 assembly was about 
Refugee Week. Mr Hanks shared his exploits in the Small Park Big Run event in support of education projects in Palestinian refugee camps, which are the same size as Meersbrook Park where the run took place.

The children were also introduced new Magid Magid, our new Lord Mayor who was at the run and is a refugee himself.

We watched the North Star Fading animation inspired by the real lives or Eritrean refugees.

Finally, we looked at 20 simple acts we could do to help.

The children were inspired to go away and complete their own simple acts of kindness, see the Refugee Week website for more information.
