Song lyrics

Hello again,

We have put together packs of the song lyrics but I’ve just discovered quite a few in the classroom. Just in case yours haven’t made it home, we’ve added them below.

Always Winter Now

Once it was midnight dancing with Dryads who live in the trees,
And Nymphs who hide in the forest pools
And Mermaids who swim in the seas
Once it was fun and feasting with macaroons, melons and mirth
And wild red Dwarves dug for emeralds
In the caverns deep under the earth

chorus
And the sun rode high…….
In the blue bell sky….,
And blossoms shone on every bough
In the long ago…….
Long before the snow….
But it’s always winter now
Always winter now
But it’s always…winter now

Once it was peace and plenty for animals insects and fish,
And all the forest folk went in search
Of the milk-white stag who grants ev-ry wish

chorus

Beaver Song

When the frying pan hisses in with the fishes
It’s going to be delicious so heat up the dishes,
Take the trout out by his tail or his snout,
Carve him up, serve him up and everybody shout

I crunches it, I munches it till I’m a about to burst
I swallows it, and follows it with something for my thirst.

Beer from the barrel, tea from the pot
Fill every mug and swiggle down the lot.
Some like it cold some like it hot,
But I like it anyways I swiggle down the lot.

The potatoes are mashing butter is splashing
There’s lots of yellow butter that’s the beaver fashion.
Now here’s the bowl full of marmalade roll,
Steamy and sticky so shout with all your soul,

I crunches it, I munches it till I’m about to burst.
I swallows it, and follows it with something for my thirst

Beer from the barrel, tea from the pot,
Fill every mug and swiggle down the lot
Some likes it cold and some likes it hot,
But I likes it anyways I swiggles down the lot. ( repeat)
I swiggles it, I swuggles it, I swaggles it and swoggles it and swiggles down the lot.
What? I swiggles down the lot

Coding

We had a great Computing session today. We’ve been using coding to solve Minecraft challenges. Lots of the children asked for details so they can continue at home.

Seeds from space.

download

British astronaut Tim Peake has asked Abbots Farm to help him with one of his scientific experiments.

He wants pupils to plant rocket seeds that have been in orbit with him, and compare their growth with rocket plants that have stayed on Earth.
Mr Peake has outlined details of the project in a message from the space station which will be sent to schools.
The study will help find ways to grow food in space which will be essential if humans travel to distant planets.
We didn’t know which were space seeds and which were earth seeds. We were only told blue or red.

Wrens are growing the ” blue seeds”

Alex and Joseph think the blue seeds are Earth seeds, as the red seeds grow quicker because they have space power.

Dinosaur day

As part of science week, we spent a day being paleontologists. We learnt lots of new skills.
We looked at animal bones and compared them to human bones. Learnt how to excavate using cookies.
Decided on new dinosaur names.

We had a fantastic time during our Rugby World Cup themed week and were lucky enough to have a visit from Lizzie, a wonderful artist who creates polymer models. She showed us how to make models of ourselves in Rugby kits. Once our own models were complete we used a start stop app to make animations.

Eclipse Excitement

We had a great time yesterday morning. The children were all given the opportunity to view the eclipse outside as we had a selection of fantastic viewers. We also watched the BBC live-stream in the hall and saw the eclipse from all over the country, though we think the view from AFJS was the best of all!

Welcome back and World War One

Hello everyone,

I hope you’ve all had an enjoyable half term and you’re  ready to come back tomorrow and get straight into our whole school topic on the First World War. I’m really looking forward to this for lots of reasons. I love history and it was my favourite subject throughout my education, hopefully some of you will feel the same. I think we will not only produce some fantastic work but also have a chance to reflect on this period of history and understand what wearing a poppy at this time of year means. If you have any family history of WW1 or artifacts to share then please let me know.

See you tomorrow.
