Stickman making

Following on from our amazing trip to Delamere Forest, Stickman came back to our classroom for another visit.

The children internalised the tale using actions and then created story maps to support their writing. The children worked in small groups to allocate roles and take turns to complete their story map. It was so lovely to hear the children talking and discussing with each other and highlighting their favourite bits.

Our Stickman investigations didn’t stop there as we have also focused on comparing different lengths. The children created a clay and stick Stickman or Stick Lady using different sized sticks for their arms and legs. The children applied their mathematical language to their learning outside as they then began to measure themselves seeing who was the biggest or smallest and even compared each other using the bricks as a non-standard measurement.

Newgate Measuring

The magic of Christmas has really begun with our Christmas lunch this week. Thank you for all who attended. I am sure you will agree Steve the Chef and his team deserve should be congraulated as all were fed on time and had fun. The festivities will continue in Newgate as of Monday.

What colour tinsel do you think they have chosen this year?

Have a good weekend,

Miss Bowler, Miss Howarth and Mrs Thombs.
