World Book Day 2022

The children in Class 1 all dressed up today as their favourite characters from one of the books of our chosen Victorian authors.  We had characters from Little Women, Peter Pan, Jungle Book, Beatrix Potter, Alice in Wonderland to name but a few!  

We decided to study the work of AA Milne and dived into the world of Winnie the Pooh.  We watched a little bit of one of the films, to get a flavour of what the characters in the Winnie the Pooh stories were like.  

Early Years came up with adjectives to describe the characteristics of each of the animals.  They read some of the Winnie the Pooh stories and discovered that each one began with ‘In Which….’  They chose their own character and innovated the original story to become their own.  They then drew a beginning, middle and end for their story and acted it out.  

KS1 decided to find out more about AA Milne.  They found out about his life and constructed a timeline to help them to remember key events. They looked at photographs of Christopher Robin Milne and thought about how they could tell that the photograph had been taken a long time in the past.  

Finally, they found out what a biography is and had a go at writing their own biographies about AA Milne.
