The children took part in a range of exciting activities and there are lots of super photos to share. Activities and their books included:
Mrs Smith’s group found out fantastic facts about Roald Dahl then read a chapter of George's Marvellous Medicine. The children then thought of some gruesome, disgusting and yucky ingredients they would add to a marvellous medicine.
Miss Stafford read Leon and the Place Between by Angela McAllister. This book is set in the circus so our activities have been based around this theme: magic card tricks, circus poetry and split pin acrobats.
Miss Cope’s group read The Paper Dolls by Julia Donaldson and they created their own chain of paper dolls and designed them individually.
Miss Wood’s group looked at Greta and the Giants by Zoe Tucker. The story is all about how Greta helps the giants to stop destroying the forest and help the environment. Today we have designed posters to help Greta with her protest to help make our world a better place and to help save the forests.
Miss Kirkham’s read Good Little Wolf by Nadia Shireen, a story with lots of twists, turns and tension! The children then worked in groups to create a soundtrack for the story using a variety of different musical instruments. Peter Pan was the focus book in Mrs Long’s Reception classroom. The children talked about the author and the origins of the book. We then made our own shadows by drawing around each other on black paper and cutting it out. Then we built our own Neverland with Lego and made Peter Pan hats.
Miss Daws’ group looked at the book Matilda by Roald Dahl, focusing on the character Miss Trunchbull. We talked about what an evil, mean headteacher she is, so she deserved something just as nasty! We conjured up a disgusting recipe for Miss Trunchbull to eat, made of the most horrible things you could ever imagine. We wrote our recipes and luckily escaped the chokey!
