Fantasy Characters by Ash Class

What a busy few weeks we have had! The children have worked so hard on the Christmas play and did a great job on the day, even after losing rehearsal time because of the snow. We were amazed at how well they sang and learned all their lines.

Despite all the exciting festive activities going on, we have still managed to stay focused on learning and the children are currently working on a final piece of writing. Each child has written a detailed description of a fantasy character, with inspiration taken mainly from The Iron Man by Ted Hughes but also The BFG by Roald Dahl and the fantastical beasts mentioned in the Harry Potter books by JK Rowling. These will be published in a class book called ‘A Walk in the Forbidden Forest’. Their writing style is really developing now and we definitely have some budding authors in Ash Class.

If ever we have found ourselves with a few minutes spare on Friday afternoons, we have been stretching and having fun by doing ‘Cosmic Kids’ Yoga which has been great for releasing tension and unwinding after a long week. Try some at home!

Merry Christmas to you all and thank you for all your support this term.
