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.

Our Literacy Lesson at The Abbey

The children did some lovely descriptive writing this morning at our Senior School site in Battle. Luckily, we were blessed with sunshine for our visit to ‘The Big School’. We arrived at 9am and set about exploring the ground in small groups, thinking about the school building as a fairy tale setting. The children came up with lots of descriptive words and phrases as the used all their senses to enjoy the beautiful building and her grounds. By 9:40am, Year 2 settled down to record their ideas in the dining hall. We were kindly provided with flapjack and orange squash before returning to the Prep School to continue with our lessons after break.

Thank you to everyone at The Abbey for making us feel so welcome!
