All the world’s a stage

It’s Friday again! We’ve been so busy in Year 6 with our visit to Nottingham and lots of great activities in school. The victorious Priory Singers and Ringers put in a great deal of hard work before performing at the Worksop Music Festival and Talent Show finalists have continued with their rehearsals in preparation for a week on Monday.

Our English has been very creative this week with some extremely entertaining work on playscripts (and a very ‘creative’ reconstruction of the arrival of Oliver Twist!!). Our poetry slam was superb; I was mightily impressed with the huge amount of extra work that you had all put in at home to polish and perfect your recitals. Over the weekend, share your suggestions for what you’d like our next poem to be and I’ll consider them along with Henry’s request for ‘In Flanders Fields’ .  Poems are a fabulous place to find examples of figurative language such as metaphors and hyperbole: challenge yourself to find the next one for us analyse and memorise!

  1. I agree Mrs Larkin! The Priory Singers did put a lot of effort into performing those two pieces in front of hundreds of people! The talent show finalists have practised beautifully, so I need to step up my game so I can be as good as then when we perform on the 21st of March! 🙂 I also enjoyed going to Nottingham as we found out more about the vicious Vikings, followed by the archaeology museum! We learned loads of facts about not just the Vikings and the Romans, but about the Bronze, Silver and Stone Age!
