Today we have been busy investigating different types of Christmas cards. We have looked at the four types of Christmas card; Biblical, Secular, Humorous and Victorian and discussed their similarities and differences.
In our groups we sorted the Christmas cards in a variety of ways.
The children enjoyed visiting the KS2 Christmas Fair this afternoon. KS2 pupils and staff have been working very hard designing and making products all week to sell at the fair. It was lovely to see it so well supported!
As part of our Spring Term topic ‘Our Wonderful World’, we read the story ‘Emma Jane’s Aeroplane’.
We freeze framed halfway through the story and in our ‘Mantle of the Expert’ groups we predicted and acted out alternative endings to the story.
In our ‘Mantle of the Expert’ groups we also thought about what we would like to learn this term.
We produced mind maps showing our ideas.
