The Tin Forest.

Rhino class became serious actors and actresses today as the stepped into the role of the old man, who built himself a tin forest.

First, we hot seated the old man by asking him lots of questions to understand what emotions he had in the scene.

Then, the children were placed into groups. The children were given time to text mark their scene to consider how they would perform the text.

For example, will they speak in unison, in canon, individually? Will they use movement or actions? Will they use props? What tone and intonation will bring the text to life? · After the children have had time to prepare, all the groups performed to the whole class.

Warburtons, bakers born and bred!

 

Today Rhino class fixed up their hair, popped on a hair net and apron and rolled up their sleeves! We had the great pleasure of having a visitor today from a local Warburton’s Factory. We learnt all about the history of the company, the importance of a balanced diet and why we shouldn’t waste food. We then created a sandwich using as many colours of the rainbow. What a fantastic day had by all!

Battle of Bosworth Field!

Attention all of Siddal, today Year 3 have witnessed a nail biting scene from The Battle of Boswarth – The War of the Roses.

Rhino class were split in half to represent the two families that went head to head in this battle.

The Lancastrians (Red Rose)were led by Mrs. Newham, aka Henry VII. They were against the Yorkists (White Rose) led by Miss Sunderland, aka Richard III.

Rhino class witnessed an epic battle where sadly, Richard III (Miss Sunderland) perished!

We then saw Henry VII marry Elizabeth of York to unite the families and bring the two roses together, making the Tudor Rose.

Yesterday, the children created an amazing piece of artwork with oil pastels, using only a section of the text.

Today the children used their knowledge of the authors use of language and an illustration, to predict the next part of the story.

Self Sustainable Siddal

Eco council had an amazing afternoon yesterday digging up and cooking their potatoes. The children grew two types of potatoes; rocket and regional. The children also had the pleasure of picking some of the peapods that were ready.

After cooking the potatoes with Mrs. Harper our Eco warriors were given the opportunity to taste them and then kindly brought them around the school to allow other adults and children to sample their home grown produce.
