As part of our Easter Celebrations we have been very busy. We completed some crucifixion art whilst learning about the Easter story. We made a silhouette of the 3 crosses and used torn strips of tissue paper to create a sunset background behind them. You can see the completed pieces on our Easter display. We made cards of a chick hatching from it’s egg and discussed how his relates to the Easter story and why this new life is a symbol of Easter. For our Easter service via Teams, we made eggs, with images of important characters and key events from the Easter story, to place on our Easter tree during the service. It was lovely to see all the other classes.
In Topic we have been reading Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare. We listened to Tchaikovsky’s classical version and discussed which part of the story it reminded us of. We took advantage of the lovely weather and took our percussion instruments outside to make our own compositions of Romeo’s journey through the forest to Friar Laurence’s. We did this in groups and then played it as one long continuous piece.
This week the children enjoyed making Easter cards and taking part in a whole school Easter assembly via Microsoft Teams. We made eggs to represent the different characters in the Easter story and placed these around a tree at the front of the classroom.
Nursery have been learning about the story of The Little Red Hen. They worked together to create the front cover of the book to celebrate World Book Day. It looks fabulous on our classroom door and the children are very proud of what they have created!

For World Book Day this year, each class decorated their classroom doors to represent a story. Our class story was Little Red Reading Hood which is a twist to the traditional tale Little Red Riding Hood. As Little Red reads her favourite stories she tells the wolf...
