Today the children in Parrots learnt all about playscripts. Firstly we looked at the features of playscripts and then we read through a play all about Jack and the Beanstalk. Different children read different parts, so everybody had a go and they were able to follow and understand the specific features of playscript. Well done children!! Had another wonderful morning teaching you all!! Mrs Harding
To start our new English topic playscripts, the children in Parrots' Class have been revisiting the well known children's fairytale story Jack and the Beanstalk. The children loved hearing the story again and were able to describe their favourite and least favourite parts of the story with great detail. The children also gave a reason for their opinions backed up with facts from the story. Well done Parrots - it was wonderful teaching you again!!
Little Chicks use a variety of resources to make Pirate Ships
Arrr me hearties! The Ducklings had a fantastic day on Pirate Day with Captain Dan Tastic. They all looked the part and learnt so much about the history and life of pirates from the past. They learnt about the different types of pirate ship, what was kept on board, where and how a pirate slept, their weapons and much, much more!
We were very lucky to have a visit from Mrs Haigh today. She works for the Environment Agency and she told us all about her job looking after the rivers and seas. She told us about the only things that should be flushed down the toilet - the three P's. I am sure that the children will remember this part of the talk!! She also told us why plastics are bad for the environment and what we can do at home and when out and about to help with this problem. The children sat and listened beautifully and enjoyed asking some questions too. Thank you very much Mrs Haigh.
