Our theme has been aliens and our book focus is Beegu. We are currently on lesson 4 and I was amazed with the children’s recall skills. Last lesson they were able to tell me everything they have learnt so far.
Draw, name, describe our own alien, using slow motion and freeze frames become aliens, rockets, stars etc... we have explored alien emotions and how they change within the story, read and acted out two different poems of “there’s an alien in my bedroom” and for our final weeks we are now bringing the whole story to life. Each child has a part in their production and they are very excited!
The children's voices...
“I have learnt to write about my alien” Ruben
I have enjoyed the game of slow motion” Scarlett
The best thing about this for the children is there will be a prize for the best alien picture and the best writing. It’s going to be a tough call!
