    Music - London's Burning!

    Posted by Miss L Heward
    Today, Class 1 began learning the words to London's Burning. We talked about the repeating lyrics and created our own symbols to help us remember the words. We used our voices to show the fire growing by beginning quietly and getting louder each time the song repeated. We then began to get quieter each time to represent the fire going out again.

    World Book Day!

    Posted by Miss L Heward
    The children had a go at drawing like the World Book Day artist Rob Biddulph. We followed along with his video giving step by step instructions. Year 1 then coloured their illustration and had a go at writing their own story as to why their character might be parachuting.

    Literacy - descriptive words and phrases

    Posted by Miss L Heward
    Today, Class 1 had a variety of images of different woods. The children worked in their groups to come up with different descriptions of the woods. We looked closely to think about how we can be descriptive by not saying the tress have leaves but bright leaves for example. The children used these to build on what they want their woods to be in their rewriting.

    Literacy - collecting inspiration

    Posted by Miss L Heward
    For our rewrite of the Little Red Riding Hood woods description we decided to go and collect inspiration in our own woods. We noted the things we could see, feel and hear. Some added description to these things e.g. a muddy path or a cold wind.
