Poetry Writing at Manor Barn

The last two weeks, we have been studying and writing poems. With the weather being so lovely, we decided to take our poetry lesson in the Manor Barn Gardens last week. The children were excellently behaved, as always, and really enjoyed the change of scenery. They explored the gardens using their senses and collected ideas for their poems: nouns, adjectives, verbs and adverbs. The children wrote some beautiful poems about Manor Barn in the Spring. We hope you enjoy reading them as much as we enjoyed writing them!

Dragon Stories

This term, Year 2 have been writing dragon stories for the reception and nursery children. Last week, the children finished their wonderful creations and we visited the reception class and the nursery so the children could share the fabulous books they had made. The Year 2 children told me they were a bit nervous at first: they were anxious that the little ones might find their stories too scary! The reception and nursery children loved to buddy up with the Year 2 children and were very excited and complementary about the books the children had made. Well done Year 2- I’m very impressed with your work.

Year 5 French Instructions: Sandwich Recipes

This term, Year 5 are learning all about food in their French lessons. Last week, the children learned how to give instructions to make sandwiches. After learning the necessary vocabulary, the children wrote out a recipe for a sandwich of their choice. Once they had finished, the children read their instructions to me and I followed them exactly! A few of the children realised they had missed a bit and quickly dashed off to add a line in. Everyone wrote the instructions for the sandwich they wanted…  Great writing year 5, well done!
