On Friday MnM Productions came in to perform their Christmas Pantomine Snow White. Everyone in school from Nursery to Year 6 got to watch and some of our teachers even joined in! See the videos below!
This week 3CO stepped into Willy Wonka's Inventing Room. It was full of incredible machines that made all sorts of strange noise. They soon met Boggles, a funny inventor who was very stressed as he had lots of inventions to create for Mr Willy Wonka and very little time to do it. The children very quickly agreed to be the ones to help.
They created all sorts of inventions including ones to help Bald men grow hair, selfish children learn to share and to help Granny's who fart too much!
Once they had created their ideas, they had to pitch them to Mr Willy Wonka himself!
In the next few weeks, they will be using their amazing ideas to create recipes for their inventions, advertising campaigns and to build models of their confectionary treats.
5MB-Catching and Training your dragon.
In our writing, we then started to look at the story of 'How to Train your Dragon' and the children decided to re-enact the chapter of 'Catching our first dragon', which then helped the children to write a recount of the events. The drama included climbing up a mountain, finding the dragons and trying to steal them, waking them up and being chased down the long windy tunnel then, jumping off the cliff to escape the dragons. The children had a lot of fun recreating the events and it really helped with their writing, as they had experienced it themselves.
We then moved on to training our dragons, as we had captured very disobedient dragons, similar to Toothless. The children again took part in a drama lesson where they each took turns being the Trainer, Supervisor and Dragon, and got to try their hands at training the dragons and log their results. This then helped the children write their own instructions for how to train your dragon.
Reception Pyjama Drama
The children in Reception have a Pyjama Drama lesson which they thoroughly enjoy. During a pyjama drama class, the children are encouraged to sing, dance and use their imaginations. The classes also encourage the children to develop skills such as communication, cooperation and concentration.
