World Book Day had a whole school focus of Little Red Riding Hood. 

EYFS - in Seedlings, they told the traditional story with drama, story telling and creative activities. In Key Stage one, we looked at how the tale has been adapted to change the characters or plot. We used the text, "Little Red" by Lyn Roberts and Roald Dahl's Revolting Rhymes.

In KS2, they looked at the history of the famous  fairy tale with some of its dark adaptations!

Christmas Photo shoot

Observational drawings. Acorns watched the David Attenborough film What a wonderful world and took snap shots from it to create sketches. They worked on light and shade and adding details and texture.

Inspired by nature

Where does our food come from? Acorns learnt all about this is food science this week. I just love their drawings of different food sources! 

Acorns pupils are really enjoying the story of Rosa Parks. They acted out the important scene where Rosa refused to give up her seat to a white woman. The bus driver couldn't persuade her and she was arrested by the police! This small act changed the laws of segregation in the USA.

Acting out Rosa Parks and the bus boycott.

Acorns class were inspired by nature to create observational drawings! We had a week of celebrating all things autumnal including making and tasting pumpkin soup!
