We’ve started our new English topic of Fairytales with a twist. We’ve had a VERY exciting visitor as Mr Wolfy comes to tell his side of the story of not actually being that ‘big and bad’ at all.
We’ve been role playing the story of Little Red Riding Hood. We’ve then been creating our own drama.

Exciting news this morning in year 2. Our little friend Wolfie has began to trust us enough to tell us his real side of the story of Little Red Riding Hood as we continue to write our alternative versions of fairytales.

In our new text ‘Bala Mengro’ the character Ossiri is told she cannot play her instrument because the sound isn’t great but she wants to play because she loves music. We created a ‘conscious alley’ where the children are her conscience and give her ideas on what is best to do
We’ve been listening to traditional folk music like Ossiri - we then gathered around our fire-pits and created our own songs.
We’ve been creating tableaux’s of scenes from our new text in drama in English and bringing them to life
We’ve have had some exciting news this morning as we’ve discovered some bones that we believe have been left from the ‘Bala Mengro’ character from our exciting new book. We can’t believe it. Now time to write some instructions on the best way to catch him.
