Learning about the culture of Benin, Acer Tree Assembly 26th May 2016


Today Acer Tree shared all the learning that they have done about Benin.  We found out where the society was based, when it was at its height and saw lots of art work inspired by the artwork of this awesome civilisation.  Beautiful printed fabrics and some particularly good singing lifted all our spirits.  Thank you for your assembly Acer Tree.

African Olive Hydrodynamics and Forces Assembly


African Olive amazed and fascinated us all with their wonderful assembly about forces.  They described a wide range of forces they had observed while doing interesting experiments in class.  They communicated clearly about what they had done and Miss Tippet was proud to say that they had compiled the assembly almost without her help.  Well done African Olive – we are very impressed with our Bannerman scientists!

Bay Tree Habitat Assembly


Bay Tree habitat assembly

Bay Tree asked the question ‘Can parrots and penguins live together?’.  They answered this question with singing and art work and by telling us all about different habitats.  Everybody agreed that penguins and parrots do not live together because they are comfortable in very different habitats!  Parrots like warmth and penguins are perfectly adapted to very cold weather.  Well done Bay tree – we enjoyed your assembly.

Apple Tree class assembly ‘Dry Bones!’


Today the whole school enjoyed a lively performance by Apple Tree Class.  Everybody spoke up – well done!  We all learned a lot about our skeletons; what the different bones are for and how they work.  There was singing and even a dancing skeleton which was very funny.  Apple Tree class must have been working really hard on their topic enquiry to give such a good assembly.
