Servants for the Day

Year 2 travelled back to 1890 whilst visiting Petworth House. They enjoyed most of the chores that we took part in although were not so keen on the long hours of work.  Here you can see us setting the tea tray and setting the fire in one of nearly 100 fireplaces in the great house.

Year 2 have been learning about how rich people lived in Beatrix Potter's time.  We decided to make a model of a rich house and each child carefully created objects for their room.

Gamelan at the London Symphony Orchestra

 
Y4 had the exciting and rare opportunity to experience Gamelan music from Indonesia.
Metalophones, drums and gong type instruments combine to make up the Gamelan which is seen as one entity. The instruments are all hand made, carved and decorated and very precious. The children learnt about the culture as well as learning and performing a piece called Barris from the island of Bali. What fun!
