Further Nonsense!

If it’s good enough for Dr. Seuss, it’s good enough for St. Philip’s RC! The great author is quoted as saying “I like nonsense – it wakes up the brain cells.” Just before Easter, Class 10 worked on some nonsense poetry as part of a week focussing on improving description. The following video is an example of their work.

Bonjour Pierre!

This week, French exchange students from Le Mans have visited St. Philip’s and learnt about life in an English primary school. They have been staying with pupils from St. Monica’s as part of an exchange program. The students have joined in lessons and assisted our children with their French skills during a hugely enjoyable week for all concerned. The following video is an interview held between Year 6 pupils and Pierre Fleurance.

Let’s Dance!

On the 10th March 2010, Class 10 represented St. Philip’s RC in the Salford Schools Dance Association evening held at The Lowry Theatre. Pupils performed their dance ‘Fatal Attraction’ based on a moth’s association with light. The above photos were taken during rehearsal, as photography wasn’t allowed during the actual event. However, all parents, staff and pupils agreed that the children were outstanding and a credit to the school. Several more photographs will follow ASAP.

The Highwayman

Throughout this academic year, Classes 10 and 11 have studied The Highwayman by Alfred Noyes. This classic poem has formed the basis for several activities in Literacy, including writing a balanced argument and descriptive setting work. The YouTube video above is an animation of the poem.
