A mysterious figure entered the room. The children observed the scene and were then asked to list adverbs to describe how she moved around the room and handled the objects on the table. They were also asked to list emotive language to describe her changing moods during the scene. The class used the lists they generated to support their writing a letter to Henry VIII, persuading him to release her (Anne Boleyn) from the tower.
Children in years one, two and three are learning all about rhyming words. A really funny and entertaining way to learn all about words that sound the same.
Thanks to all the parents who made a humungous effort to dress their children as Tudors today. They looked amazing and had a terrific time at Holdenby House. All of the children had a go at calligraphy, felt making, Tudor dance and Tudor medicine. I was very proud of their attitude towards their learning and the excellent behaviour and manners. A special thanks to Mrs Wakenshaw for stepping in to help.
Year three Monday 11th September Holdenby House.
We are very excited about our Tudor Day. Please could you try to dress your child up as a Tudor girl or boy. You can make their costumes as simple as you like. They will need a packed lunch in a throwaway bag and drink for the day.
We have been making tall structures using midget gens and cocktail sticks.
I would like to thank all of the children and parents of year 4 Stirling Campus for such a wonderful year. The children have been a delight to teach and they have worked so incredibly hard. Thank you for the cards and gifts. I can assure it really was a pleasure to watch the children progress throughout the year. Enjoy the holidays and keep safe. Watch the blog mid August because I'm going to post pictures and videos "A year in reflection."
