Class 6.. Bringing Story to Life..
In groups of three, we took on the roles of; Princess, King and Queen.
It was our task to think about the dialogue that might have happened when the three characters met at the start of the story ‘The Princess and the Pea.’ We intonated our voices and performed our sketches to the class. We had a lot of fun bringing the story to life.
Decorating the Christmas Tree
Year 2 are extremely busy preparing.
We are preparing for the birth of Jesus. On Thursday afternoon, we spent some time choosing which Advent activities we would like to do in order to prepare for the coming of Jesus. We have been learning that the prophet Isaiah foretold the coming of Jesus and described Him as a ‘powerful God’ and a ‘strong friend’.
We prepared in our own way. We made Advent Wreaths, stable scenes, Lego stables and finger puppets so that we can act out the story of the birth of Jesus when we like!
In class this week, we also wrote a dialogue that might have happened between Mary and Angel Gabriel when he came to visit her. Some of us also acted out the scene. Next week, we will learn all about what happened in the Visitation and the journey to Bethlehem. Of course we are also busy preparing our Christmas production too.
We love preparing during Advent!

"This [outstanding progress and an excellent start] is maintained in Years 1 and 2, and pupils develop excellent attitudes towards learning.......The school has worked particularly hard at improving boys’ achievement, especially in writing. This has been very successful and boys now achieve much better than boys of the same age nationally." Ofsted Report, July 2011
