Well, it’s almost that time of year...the Christmas performance! Oh no it isn’t, oh yes it is, if you’re a pupil in Year One! On Monday the children began the exciting task of designing and making the props needed for our Nativity. They were extremely enthusiastic ( to say the least!) and the DT and Art room buzzed with the chatter of explanations and planning. Obviously, we can’t show you the finished products yet...but we will be recording the performance which you can watch from Wednesday 11th December (more details to follow).
Year One also experienced a very dramatic start to our week by watching the ‘Breaking News’ that a mysterious metal and foil object had landed in our school field. This caused a great deal of excitement for the children. William thought that it was the cockpit of a spaceship that had landed from space, having run out of fuel; whilst Thomas thought the crash landing looked like the inside of an alien rocket.
The children were relieved to hear that an alien had not landed on our school field and this excitement was created to introduce our new story, ‘Beegu’ by Alexis Deacon. They had the opportunity to create their own version of the story by ordering images before hearing the actual story. The children enjoyed being creative with their ideas and using their imaginations to create beautiful work.
