What an exciting first two weeks we’ve had in 1GA. We are starting to get use to new routines and structures.
One very exciting new addition to life in year 1 has been our Helicopter Stories, this is an active story session where our classroom is transformed into a stage (through the simple use of masking tape!!).
So far we have written stories together, Jack and the Beanstalk and Three Little Pigs. As the year goes on, the children will have the opportunity to write their own ”Helicopter Story’ which will go in our class story book.
Once a story has been written, we act it out as a class on our stage, some children are actors and some are story listeners.
We have watched little pigs, big bad wolves, giants and even beanstalks. We’re very excited to see what other characters come to life on our classroom stage!
