Giants in the Nursery!

Nursery have been enjoying the story of Jack and the Beanstalk and other giant related stories.

We have learnt lots of language relating to size, measured objects in different ways, planted beans of our own and got very messy pretending to milk Jack’s cow!

Here are some pictures of the learning and fun in action.

Can you tell your family the story of Jack and the Beanstalk? I wonder if you can remember what happened?

Here are some questions to prompt your child’s memory.

What did Jack sell at the Market?

How did Jack’s Mum feel?

What was at the top of the beanstalk?

What did the Giant say?

1S Last Tennis Session

Today was our last tennis session. Unfortunately the wet weather meant that we had it in the hall rather than at the tennis courts. We still managed to practise lots of skills and enjoy our session.

Take a look at the pictures below to tell someone at home what activities you did today.

Here are our thoughts about our half-term of Tennis…

6F – Lewisham Youth Theatre

Yesterday, Year 6 had the opportunity to take part in a workshop led by Lewisham Youth Theatre.

We began the session with some games to get us warmed up.

We then explored our well-being through some drama activities.

Finally, we put all of our skills and the themes we’d discussed together create characters. Each group then developed these characters and put together and performed a short improvised piece of drama, exploring issues that children may experience.

It was a really fun morning! Thank you to the facilitators from LYT.
