As part of our topic on ‘Fantasy and Fairy tales’, we were pleased that Jack (Jack and the Beanstalk) visited us last week to inspire us with our ‘Mantle of the Expert’ planning for the next half term.
He needs our help as he is fed up of living so close to the giant and he want to move house to a nicer area. We have suggested that he and his mother move to Knighton. Over the next few weeks we will be finding out information about the local area and reporting back to him.
Children in the Foundation Phase all enjoyed a fabulous party which they had organised on Friday 25th October. The children had been working very hard planning the party entertainment, fancy dress theme, and the advertising of the party. I’m sure you’ll agree that they did a fantastic job and looked amazing in their costumes. Well done!
The centre is an additional resource that allow pupils to gain specialised and specific support in order to help close and reduce any learning gaps they may have. For additional information please contact the school or specialist centre staff.
Over the last few weeks we have been learning about the Wizard of Oz. We read the story first to get information about the characters, settings and plot. We then created a story mountain highlighting the most important parts of the story. To add more detail we watched the film. Everyone loved the film.
We went onto painting the different settings using the correct colours. We wanted to describe the different settings and used a thesaurus to search for WOW words.
Finally we were ready to write out own stories. We used Alan Peat sentence structures, description, similes, speech and different forms of punctuation.
