Learning German!


On Tuesday 17th January, a group of year 10 pupils, from Sirius came to our school. They came to teach us a language we have never ever learnt and that was German! Our class starter was to match some images of food with the German vocabulary. They were known as cognates, which are words in two that look and sound very similar to the English word. After that, we looked through a short presentation, where we learnt new vocabulary and even short sentences. We then had to draw picture of our favourite meal and were challenged to label the foods that we had drawn in German. We thoroughly enjoyed learning a new language and look forward to our next session!

Story Writing Geniuses

I know that we are all fabulous story writers at Wold, so I am hoping lots of you will get involved with the BBC 500 Words Competition.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p00rfvk1


As a judge last year, I know that our children write stories of an amazing standard. Look on the website for ideas and get writing.

As an added incentive this year, you can also submit the same story to me, to be entered into the DRET short story writing competition ... so a DOUBLE chance to win!

Good luck and let your imagination run wild.

Today, we were taught French by some pupils from Sirius. They played games with us about animals in French. We learnt some phrases to start a sentence and they taught us how to say more than one animal such as: giraffe, sheep, owl, cat, dog, and pig. They're coming back next week to teach us more French and art.

An Inspiring Author Visit

On Monday 9th January 2017, an author called David Lawrence–Jones came in to inspire us to read and write more. Remarkably, David didn't enjoy reading when he was a young boy, although that soon changed. He told the story of how he became an avid reader and therefore a writer! He also shared some extracts from stories he had written, whilst he even allowed some of us to act as some of the characters from his first book.

His series, which had four books within it, was called Bradley Baker. It was based on a young boy, who went on many adventures. On Wednesday 11th January, he came back into our school, signing books that some children had purchased. They are a fantastic read!

This was an extremely exciting experience for us all and we hope that many more authors are invited to our school in the future!

Pipe Dreams at Wold Academy

We are working with the artist Dom Heffer on a project called Pipe Dreams. Dom has shown us some of his artwork which is at our school for everybody to see. There are  four big pipes hanging down from the ceiling. They are red, yellow, blue and, green. The red one has an eyeball on it and the yellow one has a propeller. Today in our work with Dom, we got a pipe and materials, and we decorated our pipe with some plastic cups some plant pots and doodle dreams and we had to stick it with some masking tape. we are loving our Pipe Dream work.
