White-tailed Eagles - 4th November 2022

This week in English we have begun looking at a new stimulus for our writing - the fairy tale Hansel & Gretel told by Neil Gaiman. At the start of the week we used drama to think carefully about how the characters and plot. We create a 'conscience alley' where children had to take on the role of the mother or father and argue either for or against leaving their children in the forest. We then created short pieces of drama and freeze-frames to retell the beginning to the story and consider how Hansel and Gretel were feeling at different points. The children also considered what it would be like in the forest and took a 'guided walk' through the forest with a forest soundscape playing. This culminated in the children writing some excellent forest descriptions from the perspective of Hansel or Gretel.
