Welcome to Falcon Class!
Autumn Term 2018 Highlights
We had a fantastic day working with Somerset Film to write and film our own daytime TV programme. Everybody took a turn in front of and behind the cameras. We all learnt a lot about filming, teamwork and deadlines! We enjoyed seeing the finished product.
We were so Inspired we made our own film on the class i-pad. We were delighted when it helped us to receive a grant for 15 new i-pads for the school!
Our next moment of inspiration came on National Poetry Day. We made our own poetry installation on this year’s theme Freedom and then in the afternoon created our own poems to accompany our Lego creations.
Our topic this term was evacuees in WW2 and we started it off by all taking a role in the play Blackberries and Bombs. It was a really interesting and enjoyable way to introduce our topic and get to try-out some different accents!
In the second half of term we travelled to Baltonsborough school to work with the poet. Tony Walsh a.k.a. Longfella. When we came back we all wrote our own poems based on the theme I am Fantasticus! Have a look at some of our ideas.
In December we found out that we were to become a Polar Explorer School and the fun really started. Antarctica day was great fun and we loved finding out about the lives of penguins.
