Summer (1) Term
We have all very much enjoyed our Vikings topic this half term. All of our literacy work has been linked to it. We have written Viking adventure stories, instruction on How to be a Viking and a variety of styles of poetry - all with a Viking theme. We have also created our own Viking mini sagas that had a beginning, middle and end - all written in 50 words. We are very proud of them and hope you enjoy reading them.
Shakespeare Day – 2nd March 2016
We very much enjoyed our Shakespeare day. Rob and Dave from Sky Blue Theatre Company came into school and really brought the work of William Shakespeare to life for us, in particular Romeo and Juliet. We have been studying this in our Literacy lessons so this experience was excellent for reinforcing and deepening our understanding.
Rob and Dave performed the play for us with help from some enthusiastic volunteers from Abbotts Ann. The performance was very engaging and lively, and it was made all the more enjoyable due to our prior knowledge of the plot.
We also were able to watch a performance of Shakespeare’s play from A Midsummer Night’s Dream – Pyramus and Thisbe. Another enjoyable experience.
We also gained a lot from the 2 workshops that followed – one of which taught us about characterisation, body movement and facial expression and the other which developed our knowledge of making a film trailer for Romeo and Juliet.
A great day was enjoyed by us all.
