As part of drama we became Kings for a day.We walked and talked like kings, designed individual crowns and role-played a day in the palace!Andrea thinks we could all really get used to palace life!!!:)
All hands on deck to create a beautiful ‘Poetree’ in the school library.Thank you to all the classes who helped so far and looking forward to displaying your wonderful work over the year:
In first class we have been doing some drama and science activities around the nursery rhyme favourite ‘Humpty Dumpty’. We discussed lots of things we had previously taken for granted, such as 1)Why did Humpty sit on a wall? 2)Why did he fall? 3)Why couldn’t the King’s Men and King’s Horses put him back together again? Some very interesting walls were designed along with some suggestions: Humpty just wanted to climb like all kids…Humpty wanted to see what was beyond Egg-Kingdom over the wall…Humpty was looking for his Egg-Friends who had all mysteriously vanished…Horses couldn’t mend Humpty because they would probably trample on him or eat him up…horses wouldn’t understand the instructions…horses don’t have hands only hooves…they should have brought in Egg-people who would be experts in mending broken shells!!!
