** WELCOME TO YEAR ONE MEETING THURS 15TH JULY 5PM **
The week was based around the story of Stanley's Stick, a story about a boy who carries a stick everywhere and uses his imagination to change his stick into all sorts of wonderful things. He starts his story at Stockport train station and ends up in Blackpool. The children collected sticks and used them in all sorts of creative ways. We also used the story to get creative with our writing. Every Year goup got involved from Nursery to Year 2. Take a peek at the photo's below. A BIG THANK YOU TO ALL THE PARENTS WHO WERE ABLE TO HELP OUT, IT WAS GREAT TO HAVE YOU IN SCHOOL WE HOPE YOU ENJOYED IT TOO
We started the day with an assembly led by Chris from The Den Experiment. Parents, children and teachers together. Then we headed off to our classes, we were all in different classes for the day, Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 together. We got into teams and designed and made flags. Next we made small models of our dens using plasticine and sticks. After that we went outside and started to build our dens. It was very tricky! Miss Cowgill's Dens kept falling down! Finally we covered the dens to make them waterproof and we had snacks inside our dens.
We all took it turns to tell our own version of Stanley's Story. For example we had 'Oscar's Stick' where Oscar went exploring the beach and came a cross a stick that turned into a Fishing Rod. He caught a huge whale with it! After we told our story we thought what we would need to write very carefully. We said each sentence out loud and listened for the sounds we could hear in each of the words. We had to remember SO much, such as finger spaces, full stops, which letters make which sounds and using correct letter formation which is so important! We were very proud of our work and really enjoyed doing it. WE ALL LOVE TO WRITE!!
