In English we have been writing thank you letters to the staff that ran Chateau Beaumont. Chateau Beaumont was the place that we stayed while some of us were on a trip to France. The people who did not go to France wrote letters to the teachers who organised the activities in England.

Most of the time, we have been rehearsing for the upcoming end of year production, which is the Prince of Pride Rock. Another thing that is taking quite a lot of time is spent on making the costumes because the dress rehearsal in front of the rest of the school is only days away and not all of the costumes are ready yet. Mrs Bailey showed us a way of making African-looking beads from old magazines. We are making these beads and stringing them together to make bracelets that the mandrills will wear. Jack is a giraffe in the production and he has got an amazing head piece that is about three feet high but he has got to concentrate very hard to stop it falling off his head.  Ishav is a wildebeest and he has two horns tied on to his head.  It looks epic but his costume is hot and stuffy because there is thick fur around his neck.

DT

In DT we have been making moving toys. We got cardboard boxes and made holes in the middle of the top bit of the box and the sides. Then we cut dowel and we slid it through the holes in a side of the box and made the dowel come through the other side. We then stuck a bit of dowel through the top.
