HEATH HAYES PRIMARY SCHOOL'S BLOG
Welcome to our online journal - a window on our world.
'Bringing Learning Alive'
Our vision statement is to Bring Learning Alive and blogging encapsulates our aim to make learning exciting, up to date and fun.
You are visitor number:
This counter only counts visitors once so that we see the actual number of visitors to our page.
Our blog was set up, primarily, for children in school to see what others were up to when off-site. However, after only a few weeks of actually getting pictures on the site the possibilities for inspiring learning are becoming apparent.
We'd already established links with two schools in France but we are now exploring the potential of mutual blogs so that our children can comment and interact with international partners. We're receiving pictures from the arctic from one of our parents and the level of interest in geography is rising withouteven trying. The potential is immense.
It might sound like it but we're not anoraks!
BLOGGING'S GREAT FUN
and, at the same time, a fantastic educational opportunity.

Finally .... we have a sign for our tuck shop. Designed and painted by one of our parents it looks great and really finishes the job!
Well worth the wait and paid for with some of the profits.

Children have been working with parents and teachers on a variety of stimulating activities that will help children's learning. Included in the stimulating activities that 'kick start' each programe was a visit to the 'Think Tank', in Birmingham, and one to the 'Seal-life Centre', also in Birmingham
Each programme helps parents to learn how everyday activities can inspire, extend and excite children's learning.

This afternoon we went sketching. We were sketching plants, flowers and trees. We looked at bushes. We looked at weeds. Everyone loved it.
It was fun
We sketched plant. I sketched a broad bean and we sketched this plant.
It had a very very very long root. It had squiggly and long roots they are called taproots. They hold the plant in its right places. The short roots get the water.
This afternoon we looked at some plants and I drew them!
I enjoyed it.

We saw lots of different instruments big ones small ones .
We all did a dance. I had a great time. I could do it again
Miss Leeming was dressed up as a rich lady.
The ladies over the age of 16 years old had to wear lots of pale make-up but Miss. Leeming was lucky because she did not have to.
It made their skin very poorly. They had lots of diseases and millions of people died from them and we are very lucky because we do not get them any more; they are gone now.
I really enjoyed it on Wednesday 24th May because we went into the hall and this man dressed up in a costume pretending to be in the Tudor times. Me, Mollie and Brogan were slaves for Miss Leeming. She dressed up in a Tudor time dress. There was an under-hoop to make the dress look wider than it was.
Ameera was up and she was playing an instrument. She made up her own tune.
On Wednesday a man named Mr. Carter came in to teach Years 3 and 4 about Tudors. Me, Caitlyn and Ameera played the crumhorns.
I really enjoyed it.
On Wednesday 24th May we met a man who was going to teach us what the Tudors were like. He shown us the instruments the Tudors played. The man was great at playing all of the instruments. It was lovely tunes. I learned about the Tudors' music, dancing and songs.
We only had some time to learn the dance and most got some steps wrong. He said that we were really well behaved. It was absolutely FANTASTIC!!!
It was proper mint.
