Stories from the Byron Wood Bugle

Byron Wood Scales New Heights

I am here to introduce you to a magnificent club at Byron Wood School. This club gives children an opportunity to try something completely new and different. This club will truly blow your mind because it teaches you amazing skills on climbing walls.

Every Friday, some pupils come to climbing club to learn how to climb and belay (to hold a climber on a rope). We get changed at school or at the climbing centre, but we leave at 3:00pm. Climbing club is for Y4 and over. Our group leader, Will, takes us there with Miss Sadique and, when we arrive, we are looked after by a climbing centre member who teaches us how to belay and climb.

Climbing club is very fun with all the games we do at the beginning and the end, and in between we do wonderful climbing. At the end we use our money to buy some sweets from the counter. You must come to climbing club because it will blow your mind! Also you’ll enjoy the wonderful, fun and remarkable games.

Do the Sahara shuffle

During the last half term, Miss MacNair’s class were learning Egyptian dancing in P.E. We all had a fantastic time learning amazing, groovy Egyptian moves.

The first four basic moves were the Cleopatra arms, pharaoh flick, Egyptian walk and then the last one is the Cleopatra hop, my favourite. The other few dance moves are a little bit tricky, but I will tell you them anyway: Tutankhamen turn, Sahara slide and Sahara shuffle.

In the last session of Egyptian dancing we had to put three of our favourite moves together to make our own dance routine. The most popular Egyptian dance moves are the Cleopatra arms, Sahara shuffle and the Cleopatra hop. My dance routine first started off with the Cleopatra hop, then the Sahara slide and ended with the Sahara shuffle.

Lowry Landscapes in Y6

In Y6 we have been learning all about the famous artist L.S. Lowry (Laurence Stephen Lowry). Lowry was born on the 1st of November 1887, in Stretford Lancashire and died on the 23rd February 1976.

The vast majority of the Y6s have enjoyed learning about his inspiring art. We had the opportunity to produce paintings in Lowry’s style. Most of Lowry’s paintings were drawings of industrial areas in England, and he mainly used dull colours. We practised sketching some of Lowry’s drawings in our art books then put together all our ideas and painted our own drawings – using Lowry’s ideas.
