Journey – Aaron Becker

We had a fantastic time last week looking at the picture book Journey. We thought about how the characters were feeling, discussed how the colour of the pictures made us feel and imagined what new worlds we would like to explore.

However my favourite day was Friday when we did a bit of acting. We used our ideas to act out the places the girl could visit (Diggerland, Africa, Disneyland and CBeebies Land) and played musical instruments to create a more dramatic effect. We even sang part of a song from ‘The Greatest Showman’ to start us off.

Through the dark, through the door

Through where no one’s been before


We have been learning how to write a program to make characters move on screen. For our first try at coding we have done really well.

Why not have a go at some of the other activities on 2Code on Purple Mash. Good luck.

The Queen’s Knickers

This week in Class 1 we have become newspaper editors!

We found out that the Queen’s knickers had gone missing!

We gathered evidence from the police and eye witnesses and we heard from the royal maid, Dilys.

We then wrote the most fantastic newspaper reports!

Well done class 1!
