This half term we are reading The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe by C S Lewis. As part of our work on the story we went through the wardrobe and experienced Narnia during the time of the White Witch and as Aslan returned. We will use this experience to help us write our own portal stories.
Over the last few days we have been preparing for a Victorian Christmas! We decorated the classroom with traditional greenery and paper chains and this afternoon we made a whole range of decorations including baubles and salt dough ornaments. We are looking forward to seeing "A Christmas Carol" tomorrow and a fun filled last few days of term.
The children have a half term homework in their books; we have asked them to choose and learn a poem to perform to the rest of the class in the new year. This is not compulsory but it is something they will all have to do at some point through the year so it would be great if we could have lots of performances in the first few weeks back! We will give them a chance to have a look at some poems to choose from this week so they might bring one they have chosen home!
