This week we read The Three Billy Goats Gruff. We looked at the picture of the troll in the book, and thought of words to describe him. We then created our own trolls and labelled them. We wrote some sentences to describe our troll. During our guided reading sessions this week the children had a chance to act out the story. The children have taken their acting skills to the outdoor area this week. They have created some performances to share with the class, adding dancing and music too.
Thursday morning was transition morning for all of the children. Some children were excited, others nervous, before the met their new teacher and saw their new classroom. However, by the time the children returned to the classroom a couple of hours later, they were all delighted to tell me about the lovely morning they had in Year 1. They are now very excited to begin life in Year 1!
We had a lovely end to the week. On Friday afternoon we were invited to Bushey Manor to watch the Year 6 production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat. The children were really impressed with the performance, and chatted about it all the way back to school.
