Well done Swallows for a brilliant class assembly! You all did a great job of sharing your learning.
As part of our 'Lights, Camera, Action' topic the children learned about the life and cultural significance of Charlie Chaplin. They had great fun recreating digital stills of the man himself. We were also able to use these in conjunction with PSHE when discussing how people may convery certain feelings through their body language.
We have started to look at the Gunpowder Plot story. Today we were acting out the story. We took the roles of Guy Fawkes, another plotter, King James and a guard. Look how good we were!
