What have Blue Class been doing this week:
This week the whole school has been involved in a theme week. We used the childrens’ non- fiction book, “Where the wild things are” by Maurice Sendak. The week had a literacy focus but we also created parts of Max’s bedroom from the story, which grew into a forest, the walls became the world outside and an ocean came rolling by.
On Monday morning we all walked into the forest for some inspiration and collected nouns, verbs, adverbs and adjectives. We saw some beautiful and wonderful things too and they definitely helped with our writing.
Blue class wrote a description of where they would take their own private boat, including some adjectives and producing some outstanding work. They created the boat too, made their own wild things and made some creative masks.
On Friday the whole school enjoyed a rumpus. Ask the children what happened in the hall and look at the photos.
Next they all revisited Max’s bedroom. They’d noticed that the forest and vines had spread into the hall. Mrs Thorpe took them all back round to look at Max’s room again and as in the end of the story, Max’s supper was waiting for him.
