Two songs performed by children across Year 3. The first is a traditional Native American folk song about a canoe and the second is a traditional French song about a monk (a religious person) who has overslept and is late to ring the church bells!
In the morning, we went to the local train station and caught the train to Yardley Wood. Here, we then made our way to the Dingles, where we arrived at the River Cole!
It was hotter than being in a desert, once we got out of the train and it was even hotter after the 5 minutes walk down to the Dingles. Here, we had a little snack as the walk down was treacherous (or so it seemed at the time…)
Next, we strolled along the river bank, looking down, we were so surprised to see that the water was shallow! We thought it might be a bit deeper… Oh well! It was ok because at least we could see the fish!
Then we finally had some lunch, boy were we starved! We played rounders, parachutes and races and laughed until our tummies hurt! What a day! We finished the day with a calm reading session… bliss! Finally, it was home time!
First the adventure starts with the River source. Next, it forms a narrow strip of water. Then, it meets the tributary which winds to the twisty meander and creates a tranquil water fall. Finally, it releases into a river mouth and gets sent to the sea.
If you want to learn more please listen to this song.

First, the village man James was rushing like the wind to the life taking battle ground. The concrete pushed it’s self into his feet like thorns and vampires. He had to camouflage into the ditch that was as black as dark space and night. Next he was breathe taken when he found himself in front of an unconscious looking corpse. He though he was from the ancient stone age but little did he know that this was an alive royal king which injustice was done with. He slowly and cautiously took the ramshackle bag off and found the king. He was aghast yet joyous with the consequences and the circumstances. He went to take the king back to his destiny. He was known as a mystery……
