Pat’s grandad visited us yesterday to tell us all about bookbinding. He’s a professional bookbinder and he’s done books for the BBC, The Queen Mother’s 100th birthday and Damon Alban! He’s also made books for the films ‘The Witches’ and ‘Jack the Giant Slayer’! He’s really great at bookbinding. He showed us how books are made and covered using traditional methods. We learned loads. Thanks Pat’s grandad.

Teamwork with Rupert Creed

Rupert is a playwrite. He came in to school to teach Year 4 about trust. When we got into the hall we sat in a circle. We pretended that there was a circle of glass within our circle. We had to lift the glass as a team and make sure it didn’t drop – this meant watching each other closely. First we had to put on our safety goggles, big boots and gloves to protect ourselves just in case we dropped the glass! We also played a trust game where one of the pair led their partner around while their partner had their eyes closed. At the end we had a dance contest – Jack was the winner.My beautiful picture My beautiful picture My beautiful picture My beautiful picture My beautiful picture My beautiful picture My beautiful picture My beautiful picture My beautiful picture My beautiful picture My beautiful picture My beautiful picture My beautiful picture
