We had a fantastic day celebrating World Book Day. We read a new story called, ' Perfectly Norman' by Tom Percival.
Click the book cover below to listen to the story.
After we read the story we thought about why we are special and unique. We made colourful masks too. Then we found a giant pair of wings just like Normans. Have a look at our pictures below.
Everyone came to school dressed in bright colours or as a book character.
What is your favourite book?
What a wonderful day we had at Beeston Castle. The sun was shining brightly and we all had a brilliant time exploring the castle ruins and the surrounding area.
We've been learning about William the Conqueror and why he came to England from France.
We looked at the Bayeux Tapestry and the story that it portrays.
We acted out parts of the Tapestry too.
Can you remember why William came to England?
Who did he and his army fight against?
What happened to King Harold?
Have a look at he battle that we acted out in our classroom.
We've been reading different books about the Queen.
Our new book is called the Queen's Hat. We acted out the story and now we want to try and change the story to make it better.
We worked in groups to innovate the story and to create story maps.
Have a look at our work below.
Happy 2019 Everybody!
I hope you had a great , restful holiday and you are now ready for a new term back at school.
We started our week by watching some of the NY firework shows from around the world. In our Dance lesson we then started to move like Fireworks using the scarves. We had to incorporate a number of movements, heights and change out pace.
Check out our pictures below.
As part of our Manchester topic we went n a trip into the city. It was a cold day so we had to rap up warm.
We walked to Wilmslow Road and jumped on the bus into town.
We visited many interesting places including Central Library, Manchester Art Galley, Beetham Tower , MOSI and John Ryland's Library.
We were very lucky and we were allowed to go up to Cloud 23 in Beetham Tower. We could see all over Manchester and Sarah said she felt like bird because everything looked so small when she looked down.
We spotted trains, the canals and Central Library.
Afterwards we were very hungry so we went into the MOSI to eat our lunch. Lewis really wanted Ms Lindsay's coffee! :)
We we went back outside it was raining but that wasn't going to stop us. We found the old Victorian School which is now a fancy hotel. Can you tell your family why the roof was flat?
Finally we went to John Rylands Library. It was such an amazing building and it felt like we were in Harry Potter. Inside there were hundreds of old books and some of them were the size of Ranem!
We really enjoyed out trip into Manchester and we love living in Manchester because there is so much to see.
What was your favourite part? What building will you take your family to see?
We wore our own clothes today to help support the Children In Need Charity.
We bought buns , cakes and head bands.
In class we learnt about what Children In Need is and we found out how the money helps children all over England.
A big thank you to everyone who bought a raffle ticket, cake or accessory.
I know we will raise lots of money for this worthy cause.
KS1 had a great time at the spooky disco. None of the children turned up but lots of scary zombies, ninjas, witches, princesses and clowns did.
