World Book Day Assembly and Shared Reading
World Book Day
All of the children had a fantastic day celebrating reading. They dressed up as characters from books, shared their own favourite books from home and took part in a range of exciting book themed activities throughout the day!
National Storytelling Week
During the week of 1st-5th February we have all been practising our storytelling skills!
Saplings, Ash and Beech classes listened to an online storyteller tell a story about Wisdom in KS1 assembly. They had to join in with the actions and reciting parts of the story - we decided that the King who wanted to touch the moon was not a very wise character!
Saplings chose to bring in their favourite books from home and talked about why they has chosen it! We have also been writing different versions of the story Handa's Surprie by Eileen Browne.
In Beech class for National Storytelling Week children brought in their favourite story book and shared it with a friend. They also did a book review of their book to encourage other children to read it.
In Mulberry class this week we listened to an audio story which used repetition and sound to keep the listener involved. We thought about what makes a good story teller. Then we had a go at telling each other stories that we new well., working hard to use expression, gestures and body language to engage the listener.
As part of our William Shakepeare topic we explored the story of King Lear and anotated the story as we went along. Everytime a character died we crossed them out and were amazed that the Duke of albany was almost the only character left alive at the end of this Shakespearean tragedy. We thought it must have been quite dramatic on stage with all the actors pretending to die, how would Shakespearean audiences have reacted - they were probably quite noisy!
Bringing stories to life!
Sycamore class listened to the story 'The Maths Curse' as part of our Numeracy lesson. This is a story about a boy who wakes up one day to find that everything has turned into a mathematical problem.
