The Trial of the Big Bad Wolf
In English, as part of our work on Traditional Tales, we have been reading 'The True Story of the Three Little Pigs'. Today we held the trial for the Wolf. We had a Judge (Miss D), Defence, Prosecution, the Accused (the Wolf) and two witnesses (Granny and the Third Pig).
The children had time to plan their questions and potential answers within their groups before we set up the courtroom and began the trial. After the trial concluded, the class became the jury.

Jen Delyth Sketchbook Page
We have been looking at the Celtic artist Jen Delyth. We looked at her use of value, line and shape. We created a sketchbook page and used this as inspiration for our own original pieces. We selected from the media watercolours, soft pastels or oil pastels.
Toilet Roll Timeline
In History, we are looking at the Iron Age Celts. To help the children understand how far back the Iron Age was, we created a toilet roll timeline.
Each sheet of toilet paper was used to represent different periods of time in British History. Children were amazed how far back in time the Celts were and were able to compare this to their Term 1 work on The Normans.
If you are feeling brave and would like to recreate the timeline, have a look at the attached document. This can be completed as a replacement for one of the activities on the homework sheet which will be sent out on Friday.
All you need is a toilet roll and a lot of space!
