World Book Day

Today, for World Book Day, Morpurgo Class have had a busy day filled with book-related quizzes, activities & stories…

We dressed up for our online morning register and looked at each other’s fantastic costumes. Mr Clements read an online story and Miss Kinning finished the day off with some reading from The Nowhere Emporium.

Throughout the day, we have participated in a bookshelf quiz, a where’s Wally quiz, decorating a fruit or vegetable as a book character, a book scavenger hunt, a setting description and an art activity!

Shadow Puppet Theatre

This week in Morpurgo Class, linked to our ‘Playscript’ unit in English, and our ‘Light’ unit in LCC, we wrote, created and performed own shadow puppet theatre plays….

First, we planned, drafted and wrote our playscripts, and made our shadow puppets and scenery…

Then, we practiced our plays (making sure the lighting and staging would work) and edited our playscripts, before our final performances on Friday!

Merry Christmas

Over the past couple of weeks, Morpurgo Class have been starting to prepare for Christmas. We have made excellent turkey hats for our delicious Christmas dinner, we have made baubles, cards and coloured in detailed pictures of various Christmas scenes. We have performed our songs for the virtual Nativity play and Year 6 have learned lines for their ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas’ poem and their Christmas puppet show. It has been such a busy term, so it is now our time to relax and enjoy Christmas!

Merry Christmas everyone!

Brain Afternoon

This afternoon, Morpurgo class have been learning about the important jobs that the Prefrontal Cortex, the Amygdala and the Hippocampus do in our brains. We made our brains earlier in the week, and today, we labelled them with the relevant parts and their specific jobs!
