The Snowy Owls have had a very busy beginning to the school year. This half term the topic has been “Families” and we have thought about what makes a family, where we live and how we know we belong. We practised drawing a partner and then used a mirror to draw and colour our very own self-portraits which look great on our classroom wall!
We have loved reading all the “Large Family” stories written by Jill Murphy, especially “Five Minutes’ Peace” which we liked acting out – even Miss Poole transformed into Mrs Large and we interviewed her! We are busy finishing off writing our own stories based on the Large Family and we have enjoyed plotting what might happen next to the family.
Snowy Owls have also been very excited to design and make their own pop-up puppets. We can’t wait to finish them and play with them.
