Poetry Performance

This morning, we were looking at a range of poems and discussing the differences between poems and stories. The children particularly liked the Brian Moses poem: Aliens Stole My Underpants. They decided that they wanted to share it with you! We discussed how to (and how not to) read a poem and other ways to make it interesting for you at home. The children split into teams and had 20 minutes to work together to learn their section off by heart, add actions and expression. We hope you like the result!

 

 

Year 2 Review Peter Pan on Ice

Key Stage One had a fantastic time at the theatre yesterday afternoon. We went to see the Russian Ice Stars’ performance of Peter Pan: Peter Pan on Ice.  We spent part of the morning reflecting on the story of Peter Pan and thinking about how this could be set into various scences as an ice skating show. Year 2 also looked at some reviews of the show and discussed the language, structure and purpose of the reviews, so that they knew what sort of things to look out for in the show.

At the show, the children were a credit to the school. Their perfect behaviour throughout was commented upon by many of our neighbouring audience members. As soon as the lights went down, the children and staff were mesmerised by the amazing skills of the skaters and the beautiful staging and scenery. We all felt that the addition of a narrator to the show really helped the children to follow the story.

Today, Year 2 reflected upon their experience and studied some more reviews. We hope that you enjoy the reviews of the show that Year 2 have written.
