Guitars at the Town Hall.

Last week, four children were lucky enough to take part in the Rochdale Music Festival. The budding musicians performed in-front of other schools, parents and even judges. The children performed fantastically: they scored 86 out of 100! A brilliant result. Well done to all who played; we’ll be back performing next year!

 

Miss Clarke’s Boot Camp!

Today, Mr Couldridge left us to take some guitarists to the Town Hall. Miss Clarke was covering. She pretended to do PE with us …. we we forced to take part in various different exercises: burpees, star jumps, squats, skipping, planking and jogging on the spot. We have never worked harder in our lives! Sergeant Clarke was tough – please never leave us again Mr Couldridge!

World Book Day

As part of our World Book Day celebrations I (Mr Hall) was given the opportunity to read to 6C. After a bit of thought, I decided to read an adapted version of one of Shakespeare’s most famous plays – Macbeth. The version I read was from Usborne’s Illustrated Stories From Shakespeare. I chose this because when I was first introduced to Shakespeare (at GCSE level) I was initially put off by the unfamiliar language, however once I became more comfortable with it, I began to realise that there are fantastic stories at the heart of all his plays.

All the children seemed to love hearing the story of Macbeth, and I hope it has inspired them to read more Shakespeare stories. When they come to study the plays themselves a background knowledge of the stories will be a great advantage.

If you would like to access some child friendly versions of Shakespeare yourself, The Guardian newspaper as compiled this list of 10 of the best resources.

Can you see me now?

Today, we started our new topic in science: light! We’ve begun by learning about how we see. We learnt that light beams leave a light source (in a straight line, as that’s how light travels) and then hits and object. Once light has hit the object, the light beam reflects off an object and into our eyes. That’s why we can see the objects!

We made videos to show what we learnt. Here they are!

Sir Tim Berners-Lee

The inventor of the world wide web and one of Time Magazine’s ‘100 Most Important People of the 20th Century’, Sir Tim Berners-Lee is a scientist and academic whose visionary and innovative work has transformed almost every aspect of our lives.

Having invented the Web in 1989 while working at CERN and subsequently working to ensure it was made freely available to all, Berners-Lee is now dedicated to enhancing and protecting the web’s future. He is a Founding Director of the World Wide Web Foundation, which seeks to ensure the web serves humanity by establishing it as a global public good and a basic right. He is also Director of the World Wide Web Consortium, a global web standards organization he founded in 1994 to lead the web to its full potential. In 2012 he co-founded the Open Data Institute (ODI) which advocates for Open Data in the UK and globally. Sir Tim has advised a number of governments and corporations on ongoing digital strategies. A graduate of Oxford University, Sir Tim presently holds academic posts at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology at CSAIL (Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab), (USA) and the University of Southampton (UK.)

who  inveted the world wide web ?

Berners-Lee went on to found the World Wide Web Consortium, which seeks to standardize and improve World Wide Web-related things such as the HTML markup language in which web pages are written. Cailliau also made ongoing contributions to the Web. Robert Cailliau’s a 1995 speech, “A Short History of the Web,” is an excellent resource for those who want to understand the history in more detail.

ITim Berners-Lee invented both the HTML markup language and the HTTP protocol used to request and transmit web pages between web servers and web browsers.
