Wow! What a fantastic and busy first 2 days!
I really enjoyed welcoming you back to Year 1 yesterday dressed up as characters from Shakespeare’s plays. You really embraced the day and knew exactly who you were! A great start to our Tempest theme.
Today, we didn’t enter the classroom this morning, we came straight onboard HMS Matilda and immediately experienced some rough seas! We had to put our sailor hats on and make sure our ship was safe! Can you remember what these commands mean?
Tend to the master’s whistle!
Then, we recreated the storm using musical instruments, fabric and our voices. What was your favourite part when recreating the storm? I loved using the musical instruments!
Finally, our ship stopped and we found ourselves on an island. It was Prospero’s Island and we found out that he created the storm, which is called a Tempest. We then created our own impressions of Prospero’s Island, wrote some brilliant describing sentences, and then you led your friends on a guided tour of the island you had created. We have been so busy, I can’t fit everything onto my blog post! Can you think of anything else we have done so far this week?
Before you went home, we had the chance to watch a fantastic performance of the Tempest from Cedar Road School. What characters can you remember from the performance?
Well done for coming back to school so brilliantly – it is going to be a busy term but you are ready for it!
Have a great weekend and get lots of rest!
P.S Don’t forget PE kits on Monday for RealGym with Miss Gedney! I wonder what we will be doing? You might need to put your sailors hats back on!
