Whole school music challenge – ‘Any Dream Will Do’!

ARE YOU UP FOR A CHALLENGE?

We are setting you a singing challenge to complete over half term and including the first week back in school. We will be studying the Bible story ‘Joseph and the coat of many colours’ when returning to school. Your challenge is to watch and listen to the powerpoint below (made by Miss Younger) and learn a song from the musical of Joseph called ‘Any dream will do’. Once you have learnt the song, can you record yourself singing and together, as a whole school, we will collate the videos and make our own version of the song.

You can find the song and lyrics attached to the post, or on You Tube:

The moral of the story is forgiveness, one of our school’s Christian Values and therefore the story has an important part in our school’s ethos and well-being of the children.

Colossians 3:13,

“Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.”

 

Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat is a musical comedy with lyrics by Tim Rice and music by Andrew Lloyd Webber. The story is based on the “coat of many colours” story of Joseph from the Bible’s Book of Genesis and was produced in 1999.

 

Please see the PowerPoint below created by Miss Younger and complete the following tasks:

  • Learn the song
  • Record yourself singing
  • Please send any videos in to longmynd@holytrinitycepa.co.uk by 2nd March 2021, which then gives us time to edit and create the final video.

Every week for 6 weeks, during the summer term, I posted a range of activities to complete to earn a Blue Peter Badge.

The iconic Blue Badge – Blue Peter fans can earn one of these by sending in a letter or picture; you could make a rainbow for the NHS, create your very own ‘thank you’ jar, or even make a delicious bake to show your appreciation for a friend, family member or neighbour!

Silver Badge – If you already have your Blue Badge, do something different, have a midnight feast, or discover awesome kitchen science. Tell us what you’re proud of doing and apply for your Blue Peter Silver Badge.

Green Badge – This one’s all about the environment. If you’re passionate about the planet, why not try planting a seed, making a bug hotel or bird feeder, creating a window box garden or looking out of your window to see all the different types of wildlife you’re able to spot? Write in or send a picture about how green you are to apply.

Purple Fan Club Badge – Fancy yourself a Blue Peter superfan? Then this badge is for you! To get your hands on one of these, join the Blue Peter fan club, fill in the form and tell us what you’d like to see in the show and makes you a Super fan when you apply for your Blue Peter Purple Fan Club Badge.

Music Badge – Are you all about the music? If so, why not see if you can earn yourself a Blue Peter Music Badge? This one was designed by the one and only Ed Sheeran and you can earn one by picking up a musical instrument, creating a playlist of musical memories or sharing your favourite songs of all time. Fill in the form and include a picture and apply for your Blue Peter Music Badge.

Sport badge – The Sport badge is awarded to those who’ve found new ways to get active. You can hold a DIY sports day in your garden or at the park, set up an awesome obstacle course, complete a skipping challenge, or try out a totally new sport you’ve never heard of before! Fill in the form and include a picture to tell Blue Peter how you’ve been sporty to earn your Blue Peter Sport Badge.

 

Now to follow on the 6 badges of summer. Blue peter have another competition- the gaming competition.

Would you like the chance to meet a superstar gamer and record a video with them about the hottest games of 2021? What about the opportunity to design an in-game skin for a character from the hit game Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout?! Well, you can win both! All you need to do is record a video of yourself talking about something you really love, design a character skin and tell us about them and the world they live in.

Thank you for your continued support during lockdown and home learning.

Poppy competition winners

Well done to parents, carers and children who took part in the poppy art home learning competition. We have had a huge contribution across the school and what we have received is to a fantastic standard. From water colour canvases, 3D poppy fields to giant poppies.

It was so hard to pick one winner from each class that we decided to pick two. Each winner will receive a certificate and a sweet treat.

Here are all the winner from nursery to KS2:

As a school we thank you for your continued support in all the home learning projects. Keep your eyes peeled for the next one…

Home Reading Books

In order to reduce shared resources between home and school, we are changing the way in which we organise our home reading. We will be sending an appropriate reading book home with your child on a Friday along with their Reading Diary, we will not comment directly in the Reading Diaries but will check your comments and contributions. Their books will be changed on the following Friday.

Children will read at school on a regular basis and we will keep our own detailed records. Feedback on the progress your child is making and any support you may be able to offer will be communicated to you via your child’s class email. Likewise, we would encourage you to communicate with your child’s class teacher via the class email.

Younger pupils will be able to access additional reading books using our Bug Club online reading resource and complete a wide range of reading based games and activities. Their class teacher is able to see their progress. Should you have any difficulties accessing this resource please contact your child’s class teacher. We appreciate your continued support.

Meet your new teacher!

As we are unable to have a normal transition into our new classes, the teachers have produced a short video to introduce themselves to their new pupils. We are all looking forward to meeting you properly in September.  Have a wonderful Summer and stay safe!
