It has been a busy week this week!
 
On Monday, it was St Piran's Day. We all dressed in either black and white or black and gold. In Lusty Glaze class, we started off very energetically. In our PE slot we learnt how to do the Floral Dance. The children worked very sensibly and performed  well.
After learning the Floral Dance, we found out about the story of St Piran, acting out the story. Once we were really familiar with the story, we wrote a news report about it
In literacy this week, we have continued our writing unit based on battle scenes. 
 
We watched a clip of gladiators walking out into the arena before a battle and then used this as inspiration for our independent writing, thinking about describing using our senses and also what the characters were feeling.
 
In art, we also stuck to our battle theme, painting orcs and warriors to decorate a display of our writing about the battle of Helm's Deep (from Lord of the Rings).
Our week finished off with the rescheduled World Book Day. The children looked very cosy in their pyjamas. Many had bought books in to swap (see below) and I would like to thank the children and parents for their generosity in helping with this event. 
 
The afternoon ended with many parents coming in and sharing stories with their children, whilst drinking hot chocolate. Thanks again to everyone for your support and patience over the long hot chocolate queue.
 
It was a great day and lovely to see books and stories being shared.
