The Scarecrow’s Wedding

During our Film It week, children took photographs of drama freeze frames. Each photograph tells a part of the story of The Scarecrow’s Wedding. Afterwards, children created captions which they added to the film using text edit.

Squirrels Spotted at Emmanuel Church

The Squirrels have been learning about the special words in The Bible, and exploring why this is an important book for Christians. During our visit to Emmanuel Church in Barnsley, we all had the opportunity to interact with and interpret stories, parables and miracles. We now have lots of follow up questions to explore in our classroom learning.

Squirrels’ Class Assembly

The Squirrels loved planning, practising and performing their Class Assembly on our Celebrations topic. We included sharing our writing about birthday parties and our learning about Autumn. Two of our highlights were reciting a poem and showing off our Harvest Song. The children all spoke beautifully and clearly and we even enjoyed a musical performance from some of our recorder players. 

 

Thank you to our #IncredibleCommunity for their ongoing support.

The Squirrels Feed The 5000

In RE this half term, we have been considering why the Bible is an important book for Christians. This week, the Squirrels have been using drama and freeze frames to act out the story of Jesus Feeds The 5000. 

Some children were asking excellent questions such as: ‘Do Christians believe that God made the world?’ and ‘How did Jesus feed 5000 people with 5 loaves and 2 fish?’

Celebrations with the Squirrels

 

The Year 1/2 Squirrels have loved their Celebrations topic so far. In English lessons we have read stories about birthdays including Alfie Gives a Hand, Kipper’s Birthday and Angelina’s Birthday Surprise. The texts supported us as we planned a party ourselves. We wrote shopping lists, plans and invitations. When the big day finally arrived, we loved dancing, eating the birthday tea and  helping Alfie unwrap his presents. Finally, our Big Writes this week gave a recount of the party!
