Children in Oak class have researched, designed and made their own musical instruments. They were designed to create suitable sound effects for our school production 'Scrooged'. Their design specification stated they had to be made almost entirely from reused materials such as plastic bottles, biscuit tins and cardboard boxes. They had to think about how they would make their instrument vibrate to create suitable noises. Some children even thought about how to create quiet/loud and high/low pitched noises.
Charly included portability in her design specification, therefore she included a useful neck strap in her design.

A big thank you also to those parents and adults who helped contribute, you could tell the children really loved you getting involved.
The Maple and Acorn children have been having a whale of a time this morning, playing in the snow. They have made snowmen, had snowball fights (where Miss Bavin ended up looking like frosty the snowman) and had a walk through the snow-covered grounds.
Building a snowman.
"Look at my giant snowball". I'm rather glad that one didn't get thrown at me!!
Thinking of interesting ways to transport the snow.
Acorns digging in the snow-wonder if they found anything?

A very thoughtful year 6 child, decided that he would like to do 'his bit' for Children in Need and hold a bun sale on Friday 19th November. He did a fabulous job and managed to make £10 that will then be added to the Ashfield total. Well done!!!
