In literacy we are learning about poetry so we thought we'd share this e-safety poem with you.

Write Now Focus Week

We have been telling stories about hunters in the woods this week! Y2G have written their own books, learned colour mixing and washing techniques to illustrate and even shared their work with Year 6! I was really proud of the class for reading their work to the older children, who were so impressed. We used our artwork as the cover for our own books and as backdrops in our animations on the iPads.

Shh! We Have a Plan movies

After the children wrote their amazing books from the bird's perspective, they visited The Grove and made a puppet animation on the iPads. Take a look!

Shh! We have a Plan with the Rainbow Factory

The amazing, magical Rainbow Factory visited KS1 on the launch of our Write Now Focus Week. They performed a show inspired by the book, Shh! We Have a Plan by Chris Haughton and then the classes learned songwriting, dance and character development with the wonderful team.

Desert Animals

This week we have been learning about different environments and found out creatures living in the Arabian desert. We used the iPads to animate some vipers and camels!

Church Visit

On Thursday 10th December KS1 visited Pudsey Parish Church and learned about the Christmas story. An amazing team of volunteers helped the children dress up, act out the story of Jesus' birth and craft angels, babies and chocolate sheep! We learned that Jesus was born in Bethelehem (which is in Palestine, not Paris!) and that Christians believe he is greatest Chriistmas present of all.
