The Old Man and the Donkey

(Pie Corbett)

 

5th Nov '15 - We read a funny story about an old man and his grandson taking a donkey to market to sell. In Pie Corbett style, we learnt actions to go with the story to help us remember it, create story maps and re-tell the story in our own words. Here you can watch us using drama to act out the story.

5th Oct '15 - We watched an animation which told us a story about a lighthouse keeper and a community pulling together to prevent a potentially fatal crash. You can watch the animation here:

We then wrote newspaper reports about the events. Here is Niamh's report:

Macbeth

 

25th Sept '15 - Double, double, toil and trouble! This past fortnight, we have been exploring Shakespeare's Macbeth. We studied the Witches Spell and created our own versions. Here are some examples - we hope you enjoy watching them!
