What we’ve been up to this week:

We’ve a very busy week in Horse Chestnut class! Our week kicked off with our performance at the Apex as part of out Cornet and Baritone lessons. But just one performance was not enough for us this week! On Tuesday and Wednesday the children performed their school play, Hoodwinked. Every child should be very proud of the confidence they have displayed this week, on the stage and with their music. On Thursday we became archaeologists, exploring the tombs of Egypt. We were exhausted by the time we got to Friday, but we managed to create some fantastic diary entries and explored some more Egyptian artifacts.

On Monday we were at the Apex performing with our Baritones and Cornets.

We had a performance from the Theatre Royal on Tuesday. Next week, we will have a workshop with them.

In our Science lesson we tested how good different solvents were at removing nail varnish.

On Thursday, we became archaeologists, discovering the tombs of Ancient Egypt.
