World Book Day

To celebrate World Book Day on Thursday 7th March, all pupils at Queen Edith dressed up as animals! Look below at some of our lovely photos.

We all linked our English work to the book Welcome by Barroux. Reception children made their own islands inspired by those in the book. Year 1 designed a welcoming place for the monkeys from the story to stay in. Year 4 wrote inner monologues imagining that they were in that situation. Later Years pupils looked at Welcome and also Leaf, The Day War Came, The Island and The Arrival and found out about refugees around the world before writing diary entries, imagining that they were in that situation.

 

 

Year 1

Building castles:

This week year one have been exploring how to build strong structures by designing and creating Mott and Bailey Castles. Lots of skills were used to build these castles- paper mache for the motte, rolling clay to hold up the fences around the bailey and painting the castles. Some people even integrated closing drawbridges into their castles! Fantastic teamwork was displayed by all.

Sunny’s Adventures

Last week we had great fun exploring the school with Sunny and describing what he likes and does not like about each place. When we got back to the classroom, we used the iPad to share our ideas and mark up the pictures with our ideas. We found these pictures really useful and used them to write fantastic stories about Sunny’s adventures!
