The Best Day Ever

As the Tag Rugby players took to the field, the camera crew began to film. After the long rugby game, the Commonwealth dancers and cheerleaders performed their routine on Wold Trafford. As their music blared out of the speakers, year 4 performed outstanding glockenspiel pieces, to then drink refreshing smoothies made by Mrs Rothery and a group of helpers. Their stalls also gave out scrumptious fruit kerbabs and delicious fruit salads. The entire school enjoyed the day.

Baton day

On the 11th June 2014, the Commonwealth baton came to Wold Academy. As the house captains walked by everyone followed, there  was lots of screaming and flag waving.
After the speeches the dancers and cheerleaders wowed everybody with amazing acts, then Year 5 and 6 with tag rugby. Then Year 4 played the glocks. After that Year 5 did a smoothie bar they also did delicious fruit salad and yummy fruit kebabs. It was the best day ever!

Extravagantic England

Yesterday Wold went England crazy, everywhere you looked there was red and white. The cheerleaders worked their socks off along with the dancers. The Baton, that was as remarkable as a chest of treasure, glisened frantically!There was lots of screaming and shouting going on but still it was a day to remember.

Buses in F2

We have had such an exciting week in F2.  We have been doing lots of work about buses, including looking at bus timetables, making our own buses, reading a great book called Naughty Bus, buying and selling bus tickets for various prices and singing different songs about buses.  We also found out that Finley's Grandad is a bus driver so we thought of lots of good questions about buses and emailed him.  On Monday we will be finding out the answers to our questions.

On Friday we had a very exciting visit from Stagecoach buses.  They brought a real double decker bus and parked it up at school.  We were all allowed to climb aboard and try out the different seats.  We looked through the windows from upstairs and downstairs and compared the views.  Some of us asked the drivers questions and we all sang "The wheels on the bus" whilst sitting the bus.  One of the drivers even beeped the horn during "The horn on the bus goes beep, beep, beep".

We have had so much fun learning about buses and our teachers feel very proud of the work we have done.  I wonder which form of transport we will be learning about next!
