The last group from room 13 created a story about a lonely queen who lived in a castle all by herself. She went into the forest searching for friends which made her very scared.  She found a King on his horse and this made her very excited. He didn't have a castle. The queen invited the king to live in her castle and he rode off to fetch all his kingdom to live with the queen. The queen was very happy.
This group from room 13 invented a story about a family losing their dogs. They are sad. They go looking for them in a forest and it gets dark. Luckily they find a cabin to stay in and they feel relieved. During the night they are terrified because of strange noises. They think the cabin is haunted! They survive the night and open the door in the morning and their dogs are asleep on the doorstep and they are so happy.

This group from room 13 wrote a story about a dragon invading a village. They trap the dragon and then make friends with it.They invite the dragon to live in their village and he protects them and they all live happily ever after. This is the backdrop they painted and on Monday they will work on performing their play.

Room 2 Painted their own story about going on adventure through a dark forest and sneaking past a dragon in a cave, flying over a rainbow and then finding treasure at the end! They practiced changing their face and body positions for the different emotions in the story and came up with words and sounds.We learnt to use a flow diagram plan for writing and practiced the soundscape that went with this. This will help them write their own stories in class later.

Room 3 went on a Teddybears' picnic on Thursday. They painted their backdrop and visited the mountains and forest on a lovely sunny day. After they got into their imaginary costumes they marched off into the forest at the beat of their percussion instruments.

Room 8 spent the day with Miss Nicola today. We did some drama! The book we read was about the mouse with the too long tail and we shared sadness and happiness with the mouse. We were very good at making different faces. We painted sad and happy shapes and colours and we shared our dreams.
