Elder Class 28th February to 4th March 2022

Elders had their Tiny Plays session with Kitty, a play writer, and a facilitator from the Theatre Royal. They completed some free writing with a starter sentence and then used a starter sentence prepared by someone else from the class. There was lots of creativity to be seen. 

Iris and Merryana have put together a magazine for the children in key stage 2 called The Branch. It goes on sale tomorrow (Wednesday 2nd March) at a cost of 50p. They have shown fantastic learning behaviours during the completion of this project. A fantastic achievement – well done!

Update: The first day of the sale went brilliantly. There were twenty-nine magazines sold! There are more available tomorrow for anyone who missed out today.

 

Elder class have been learning about the holocaust and kinder transport. They wrote fictional first person narratives based on this.

 

In English, Elder class focused on different sentence structures and how they can impact on the reader to create vivid descriptions, provide inner-feelings and build suspense. They used some of these structures to write a descriptive piece of writing inspired by the front cover of our new class novel. I think they did a fabulous job!

 

Elder class had the most amazing time during their first Forest School session. They embraced the drizzly weather and the mud, enjoyed the sweet treats and had lots of fun! The expressions on their faces in the pictures says it all. Great memories in the making.

 

For World Book Day, Elder class listened to the story ‘Unfortunately’ and then worked in groups to devise their own story through an oral story-telling activity. They then wrote comic strip stories themselves. There was lots of creativity to be seen (and some very random situations!)

 

Elder class had a fantastic morning at Golden Wood. They were undertaking woodland management which involved cutting down trees and snedding branches, which were used for a dead-hedge and animal habitats. Some of the logs will be seasoned and used for log burners and to make benches for the woodland. The whole class were brilliant! They showed motivation, stickability, cooperation, independence and curiosity. Elders, you are stars!
