P1 are learning about the content and structure of traditional fairy tales to help with their own writing. They have made their own puppet theatre to help with the re-telling of fairy tales. Today we started with “The Gruffalo,” which although not a fairy tale, is a popular story that they could all tell.
We will have lots of fun times using our new theatre!
After lunch, we found footprints in our classroom! We found a letter from a friendly dragon who wants our help to re-build Fairyland. We are going to read more fairy tales and learn about how to write our own. The children came up with lots of fantastic ideas about how to help the dragon. Look at the photos…the dragon was sitting on the desk in our classroom!
Over the last 3 weeks P6/7 have been very lucky to create their own song with Alan Penman, a local songwriter and producer. The pupils were involved in the main theme, all of the lyrics for the song and creating the melody. We now have a finished, recorded song and are deciding as a class what to do with it. We are all really proud of it!
Here is a sneak peak of us recording the lyrics – watch this space for more information soon!
P1 have been learning about measuring. They have been putting things in order of size from smallest to tallest, talking about different ways of measuring things and using cubes to measure objects in the classroom. Recently we had fun in the playground when we measured out the actual size a blue whale – it is about 30m long! We had fun finding objects in the playground that were about 1m!
