Wednesday we were visited by a real Iron Age Druid!
We made dragon eyes by weaving wool around 2 sticks and then whispered wishes into them.
He showed us how to make Celtic paintings with swirly patterns on them.
Julia Donaldson played a massive role in our week for learning about one poet. I would like to thank everyone who brought in books for the day as it meant each child was able to have a read of a variety of her books with different levels of difficulty. The thing that impressed me the most about the day was how well everyone worked in pairs, reading and sharing their ideas about rhyming words and the events in the stories. It was really heart warming to watch.
Finally we picked our favourite Julia Donaldson book as a class and learnt parts of it off by heart.
Part 1 - Fox
Part 2 - Owl
Part 3 - Snake
Part 4 - It's a Gruffalo!!!
Alfie noticed this morning that there was a whole new creature in our little classroom pond. However when we discussed it with the whole class we decided that some "metamorphosis" had happened over the weekend. Our Damselfly nymph has grown into a Damselfly.
