P1 and P2 Castles Banquet Day!

What a great day all the knights and princesses in P1 and P2 had yesterday!  We have been learning all about life in a castle and after visiting Dirleton Castle, we decided to host our own castle banquet.  Here are some of the photos from yesterday.  We made marzipan fruits and iced biscuits, we ate roast chicken and baked trout.  We decorated our own crowns and made lion and unicorn puppets! At the end of the day we learned a Medieval dance and listened to a story about Madam Dragon’s training school.

P1 and P2 join Alex T Smith to create Claude!

P1 and P2 had great fun watching a live author event being broadcast into our classroom.  Alex T Smith, author of the Claude series of books,  talked to us about his inspirations and his illustrations and writing.  We drew along with him as he modelled for us how to draw Claude.  The results were absolutely fantastic!
