Letters from Antarctica...

Post makes people smile...

This week we independently wrote letters from Antarctica! We told our families what we saw whilst we were there and what we had endured...

The letters were so incredible that Miss Arnold nearly cried 5 times with tears of joy! We photocopied them and posted them into the letter box for our families to read. 

We hope you like what's in them...

Another exciting week...

Learning about Malawi! 

This week we welcomed Jos from the Norwich-Dedza partnership. She came into school to talk to the children about a school in Malawi that we are now partnered with. They listened to songs, got dressed up and even had a go at carrying water on their head!

More adventures with Norwich Puppet Theatre...

Day 2...

Today we cracked on with making our puppets. We had already designed them yesterday so cracked straight on with the making! 

We had to listen carefully to Zara's instructions at the start, then after play we used our individuality to turn our puppets into real life characters! 

After we'd enjoyed fishy Friday lunch we looked back at our puppets and our designs and tried to see if we had missed any details. Most people did, so we adapted our designs then PLAYED with them! Some people made puppet shows, some people wrote about their puppet and some people experimented with how it moved and its voice.

Puppet Theatre comes to Hickling - Day 1

Day 1...

Today we welcome Zara from the Norwich Puppet Theatre to school. 

First we did some acting and pretended we were in a range of different habitats/environments. After that we drew the environment that we liked the best.

After playtime we thought about different animals and how we might merge two animals together, like crossing an elephant and a rhino making a rhinophant! 

We then drew a design of our puppet (ready for tomorrow), thinking about what it likes to eat, drink, if it had any predators etc.

After lunch we worked in pairs to create our own backdrops/environments.

Check out the photos below for the end products...they are immense!
