Mindfulness

We have been taking part in daily mindfulness activities. This morning we danced like there was nobody watching. We shut our eyes and danced. We felt happy, scared, nervous, excited and silly.

 

Diwali 2019

In Golden Time we have been making things to celebrate Diwali. We looked at the story of Rama and Sita and found out that light is very important in the festival. Here is what we have made.

The Wizard of Oz

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.

Follow the Yellow Brick Road!

This week we have been learning all about the Wizard of Oz. We have created our own story mountain by looking at the characters, settings and plot. We then watched the film which we all loved. We could see the difference between black and white and colour images, which helped us understand more about the creation of film.
