Our Assembly

Thank you to everyone who was able to come to our assembly! It was a great chance for the children to have an experience of standing in front of a large audience and performing.

The story of the Creature, which the classes helped create, generated a lot of enthusiasm, and it was good to finish our unit by performing it. It allowed us to focus of various aspects of our unit of inquiry into survival, looking at what the needs of animals and plants are, within an imaginary context that the children helped to create, how medicines might contribute, how the divers might survive underwater and how the mountaineers can stay safe. There was a lot of discussion around what the creature needed and how it got exercise, and it was the children that decided that the creature was a good diver that would help the villagers with their diving!

If you didn't get a paper copy of the book, we have a few spares; please ask. It would be a good book to read with your child, perhaps asking them to read a little of it; they know lots of the words already, which always helps!

Here are digital versions of the books:

The classes worked hard to produce the artwork too, in the style of Eric Carle. We created the papers first.
Then we made our images by collage:
