Transform Our World Week

The Year 1 children read the story ‘Greta and the Giants’ by Zoe Tucker. The story was inspired by Greta Thunberg’s stand to save the world.

In the story, there was a forest that was getting destroyed by the giants (developers). The children gave reasons why they didn’t agree with this and made their own signs and held their own protest to save the forest.

E- The animals need the forest, it’s where they live.
H- I didn’t think it was right to chop the forest down to build more houses.
F- Where will the animals go now?
A- I think Greta did the right thing to have a protest.
D- I liked it when the giants learned that they shouldn’t cut down the trees.
E- I liked it when the protestors stopped the giants from destroying the forest.
W- In the end, the giants realised they were wrong. I liked it when they were helping the animals back into their natural habitat.
E- It was good when the giants helped the children get some food.

Learning Pack Deliveries

It was so lovely today to go out and see our Year 1 and Year 2 home learners. I went on a mission to deliver new resources to help our pupils with their on-line learning and I was met with so many smiles, excited squeals and virtual hugs! It was great to see everyone and hear the many positive comments about the work being set by teachers for children at home.

The learning packs were welcomed by parents as well as pupils, many thanking us for the kindness shown in creating them and the thoughtfulness in delivering them in person. One parent commented, “We will absolutely love sitting down together and sharing these games and activities, thank you so much.”

Here are some of the children we visited.
