We are now studying the ‘Lion,Witch and the Wardrobe in our English lessons. This included watching the film and comparing it to the theatre production and reading the book. The children really enjoyed the production and are now enjoying reading the book.
A brilliant effort from the children when making their dragon cushions. This was linked to the English reading and independent writing ‘Train Your Dragon.’ All the children should have brought their cushions home.
We’re having a fab time here at Ingestre.
On Tuesday evening we had the chance to see Ingestre’s WW1 interactive field hospital which was fabulous. We were able to dress up and hear lots of people’s stories from WW1.
Yesterday we finally found the punching tree and spent time polishing our performances ready for our showcase tonight. We watched Big Hero 6 in Ingestre’s 3D cinema- we all chilled on the beanbags with our tuck! It was lovely. We were all in bed by 10.30 and didn’t get up until 8 this morning!!
Today we are having our final rehearsals before our sharing session this evening! We’re having a disco tonight which is really exciting!
We’ll post some disco snaps later!
We just wanted to give you a quick update on what we have been doing our first two days here at Ingestre Hall! We’re all settled and enjoying the food- especially the desserts!
Yesterday we met our course tutors and got to know what we will do in our Arts Mark Award. We went on a night walk around the grounds with our torches, we tried to find the punching tree but it was a little harder to find in the dark!!
All children were in bed and asleep by 11.30 which was fab! Today we have been in our groups developing ideas and we have shared some of our fantastic work this evening!! We will update again tomorrow with some more of the fun things we have been up to!
