Play in a Day
On Thursday 1st March, Willow 2 took part in a Play in a Day led by Barry from Altru Theatre Company. We played lots of games to help keep us concentrate and keep focused and we learnt a lot about The Great Fire of London. It was tricky remembering all of the lines and actiing positions but we managed it! At the end of the day we performed it to our grown-up and Key Stage 1.
On January 25th, Willow 1 and 2 were visited by two African Drumming experts from Drum Roots. The children were taught how to play the djembe drums and about how they are traditionally used in African celebrations.
Willow 1 and 2 worked very hard throughout December learning songs and lines ready to perform their Christmas Nativity to their parents in Church. Here are some pictures of the performance.
In November, Year 2 visited 'The Lowry' to take part in an artists workshops. As part of their visit they became artists, learning how to draw in the style of L.S. Lowry, looking at the famous artist's own work and creating a piece of artwork based on his pieces.
The children in Willow 2 spent some time researching facts about the Queen. They worked in teams to report back their findings.
Mr. Howell visited Willow 2 to tell them all about his memories of watching the Queen being crowned when he was a child. Willow 2 listened beautifully and asked lots of questions about the day.
