This morning we started our new English book. We read the book “where the poppies now grow” which is about two friends in the war. We then watched the the Remembrance Day video, which made us quite emotional. We then discussed what would go in a soldiers pocket. We thought of different things such as a prayer, a poppy, a photograph and a teddy.

Today we had a little drama within our English lesson. Over the last couple of weeks we have been looking at the story of “Jack and the Beanstalk”. We decided to write questions to Jack in case he ever popped into St Peter’s and today he did! We had lots of children hot seating “Jack”.The. children really loved pretending to be a character and also asking a “character” a question!
