At the beginning of summer term, Pheasant class have been focusing on stories with issues and dilemmas during Literacy lessons. A key aspect of this, has been getting to grips with different texts and stories. Crucially, the children need to be able to text-map and internalise the language patterns of an issue and dilemma story - we did this through drama, and presented it in our ‘outdoor theatre’. The children worked extremely hard and thoroughly enjoyed their performances of ‘Grandad and the Laundry Basket’!
Pheasant Class have been enjoying PE lessons at Lacon Childe School. The children have been developing problem solving and teamwork skills through Orienteering. Activities have included de-coding messages using map and compass skills, and following instructions to construct a hula-hoop structure!
