A week of Poetry…

For our first week back after the break we have been learning all about Grace Darling. We learnt about her life, why she was and is still such an important person in British history. We then used her heroic actions as inspiration to write our own poems about a stormy sea…

Great Fire of London drama workshop

Today Year 1 took part in an exciting drama workshop based on the Great Fire of London. First, the children warmed up with a variety of dance and drama activties and then travelled back in time in their time machine to imagine what life was like during the fire. They pretended to walk the streets of London, dodging fire balls and avoiding the flames.

Finally they recreated the fire with materials and movement, starting small and then building the intensity before letting the fire die out.

An exciting delivery…

This afternoon 1C were very excited to receive an exciting delivery from Mrs Johnston, after she had been looking at our blog and wanted to share more clay with us!

To celebrate a fabulous nativity performance to our Year 2 friends, we spend part of our afternoon engaging Team Ant, further developing our clay sketching, using tools for different purposes and having a wonderful time playing with the clay.

The children were challenged, in their pairs, to create some amazing and wonderful things. I wonder if you can work out what some of our creations were.
