Our Topic for Spring 1 is...

 

The highlight of our topic this half term was a visit to the Alhambra Theatre in Bradford to see Peter Pan.  Back at school we have been writing recounts of our visit to the pantomime and using our voices and different instruments to enhance our own performances on the stage in our role play area.

We have been listening to lots of different traditional tales and fairy stories and making up our own.  We are focusing on Peter Pan, which is set in London, and learning about the various buildings and landmarks found there.

Year One arrived at school the other day to discover that someone had been in their classroom!  Using the clues left behind the children decided it must have been a pirate.  There was a letter from Captain Hook telling us that he had 'FOUND' some treasure and asking us to hide it for him. There was a class discussion about what we should do.  The children had some amazing ideas.

"We can't hide the treasure because its stolen."

"Captain Hook might have stolen it."

"He didn't find it, we need to tell the police."

We decided that the right thing to do would be to tell the police and ask them to return the treasure to it's rightful owner.  The children wrote letters to Batley Police station asking for their help.

 

 

Can you tell who these shadows belong to?  

In smart time we have been making shadow puppet theatres.

We have been writing recounts of our visit to see the pantomime, we have described Peter Pan and other characters and written diaries as though we were different characters from the story.

Year 2 have written their own version of a pirate poem and performed it for year one
