The afternoon started off with everyone sitting down in the crowded hall. While waiting patiently, the band started getting set up by tuning their instruments. Consequently the children were more intrigued to hear what they were going to play!
Once the rock n rollers had finished tuning their instruments, they unexpectedly played a rock song. After that, they introduced themselves by telling us their names, what instruments they played, then demonstrating with a little tune on their instrument.
Next, the band started playing lots of different songs from the 1900s to 21st century with a twist. Also, they encouraged the children to dance to the beat in the songs.
Everyone enjoyed the day and the amazing event! We hope they come again if the band has a chance or opportunity.

Happy St George's Day! As you all know, Mrs Rose gave us all an assembly and we learnt about England's Patron saint, St George. There are many myths surrounding the legend St George, but of course the main one is George and the dragon. Would you be the only woman to survive ? Or would you be the brave , mighty George, boys?

It is a new term, which means a fresh start for everyone. Also, it's the start of a summer heat-wave so enjoy the sunshine while you can.To do this ensure you ALWAYS have your P.E kit just in case your teacher ever wants to give you a little surprise of an extra PE lesson or an extra play-time on the field. The field has dried up, as a result, we can use our fabulous football goals and the sparkling stage.
Moreover be smiley in the sunshine as we all know in Coventry sunshine never really lasts very long.

Today in assembly, Mount Nod pupils learnt about the importance of democracy and were quizzed on their knowledge. It was a sucessful quiz, as many answered correctly, however one picture stumped us all.
Well done to Sally D and Madison D who took it to themselves to look it up on the internet as set by Mrs Pachett. The right awnser ( if you already didn't know) was the first ever democracy and was in Athens in Ancient Greece.

On the 26th March, fourteen of Mount Nod's talented netballers took part in a match against Easten Green. We had 2 teams, the A- team and the B-team. In the A-team there was mostly year sixes except one talented year five who goes by the name of Lizzie Carberry. The A- team included: Holly D, Lucia M, ParisG-B, Charis H, Serena C and Lizzie C.The B-team included the likes of: Jade J, Amelia D , Bethan A, Amy B, Lily M, Oliva J , Mya L.
It was a great experience even though we lost both matches. As the A- team lost their match 4-3 with Charis H scoring 2 goals and Lucia M scoring 1 . The B- team lost 2-0. Whatever the score, Mount Nod will always be proud of them as they gave 100%.

Yesterday, years 1 and 2 had a very special day, the day was called colour day. They had a lovely day and I saw them dressed up in their lovely colours! Years one and two had that day because they are starting their new topic and it is all about colours! Overall I think they had a lovely day and thank you for all the teachers that planned that!
All the pupil bloggers hope all of you had a happy new year and a lovely Christmas and enjoyed every second! Especially the new year`s fireworks!
This year we want to aim higher and achieve more and we have a moto called ad vitam paramus which means preparing for life. Last year was fantastic but this year is going to be better! THANK YOU and I hope you had a lovely year
Yesterday, The Young Shakespeare Company came in and they were fantastic! They acted out Romeo and Juliet. My favourite character is Juliet because she`s pretty and sensible. Some children got to act some parts out!The thing is, Romeo and Juliet`s parents have been having a family feud for generations and generations and generations. IT WAS THAT LONG AGO THEY DIDN`T EVEN KNOW WHAT IS WAS ABOUT! There are two families, the Montaques (Romeo`s family) and the Capulets (Juliet`s family). Romeo sneaks out to go to Juliet`s family party, because he wanted to meet a girl called Rosaline however he met Juliet instead and fell in love with her. A couple of days later Romeo decided he wanted to get married to her. This was a BIG step for him and Juliet but he was ready, so he proposed to Juliet and they soon got married. Juliet was meant to marry Paris, a relative to the royal family but she wanted to marry Romeo. The reason why Juliet couldnt marry Romeo is because of the big family feud. They got married but their parents did not know!
Mr Orr has arranged Christmas music rehearsals for the very talented pupils who will write their own songs, then - when the time comes- perform them; the top three will get to record theirselves on a proper CD! Mr Ore will also be helping everyone taking part ( including me and Lilly-Mae ) to make their own tune to the song as well.... He said ," Mabey one day the top three could get them published!"
The choir will be performing this Saturday at Myton Hospice.It is so soon, everyone is welcome there is also a fun fair for kids and grown ups.
Tomorrow the year 5/6's will be watching an amazing Shakespeare performance. It will be the dramatic Romeo and Juliet.
The author of hen in the wardrobe will becoming in this Friday to give and sign her books that she has wrote (The books are £5.99)

Keystage 1 are starting to rehearse their christmas plays; lots of people are very excited to watch them.
Days turn into weeks, turn into months; christmas is coming people so wrap up warm. The sun may be shining but the temperature is definitely dropping. Some people have predicted that there will be a little bit of SNOW!
Non uniform day on Friday... We are aware that we have already had a onesie day, but this is in support of something else. We would like to ask if the children coming in non uniform could bring a bottle or chocolate for the christmas fair.
Wrap up warm!

Anti-bullying week has started and the school council had decided to do a small, half an hour, presentation! In groups - with around three to four pupils in - they visited each keystage 2 classes and talked about what bullying is, what you should do if it happends to you and what cyber-bullying is! Every pupil listened and I know for a fact that they took it in and have learnt something from today!
Another great thing everyone is looking forwad to is, even though it is very early, the children performing their own Christmas songs (that they have made from scratch). With help from Mr Ore they will be breathtaking!!!
And another update on Miss Mallier is that she is recovering and even visited school a few weeks back...
The choir will be performing at Myton hospice on the 30th of November.To make a good show we will need 15 or more pupils to perform, to tempt you more there is a fair. As well as that, Mount Nod choir will be singing at Young Voices in January! All the choir are very excited about this huge event...

Today has been a respectful day. We have had our two minutes silence and I have to admit, it was quite moving. I won't name them but some teachers were taking it all in and were showing their emotions through tears! It is quite scary when you think about it.
As well as the bitter sweet environment pupils are looking forwad to the Pyjamas/Onesie day, that the School Council have organised! For those that don't know about it, on Friday this week, everyone can come to school - incuding teachers - in their pyjamas or onesie!
Hope everyone has a good week.
Yesterday, Jaguar Land Rover came in to our school (5/6 in the morning and 3/4 in the afternoon). First they made a presantation about JLR, then after the presantation we got back to our classes and we started doing activites.In 5/6C we enjoyed doing the maths packaging activity and in 5/6H we created clay cars and then we tested them with aerodynamics. Overall we enjoyed it very much and we our very thankful that they came in!

We cannot believe it! The clocks have changed and Autumn is working its magic..... darker nights means earlier bed time but it just dosen't feel right. I mean it's dark at 4:00pm! As well as that, Mrs Patchett's car windscreen was frozen! Autumn is here... Even the slight frost on the grass in the morning is a small sign. Everything is different in a very good and beautiful way.
Be prepared Autumn is here.............
Yesterday, we all enjoyed the phenomenal rock band peforming fantastic songs like the Beatles songs, also Daft Punk, GetLucky and we had a quiz and one of the tunes was Ice Ice Baby by Vanilla Ice!
In some classes, we had visitors from Tile Hill Wood that taught us Japanese and we learnt how to say:
We are 9 years old - nichi wa q si dis.
Bye and thanks for reading!
