welcome to Moons class

Our current topic is:  Victorians

autumn term
We have been retelling the story of 'Cinderella' this week in preparation for next week when we will make a change to the story and then write our own fantasy story.
Mrs Morris read the story and we created freeze frames to show each scene.
Can you tell what part of the story each picture is?
owl and the pussycat

We read some of Edward Lear's work and learnt the 'Owl and the Pussycat.' We added actions to it too.  

In preparation for writing our own facts, we have been learning to tell the difference between a fact and an opinion/statement that is not a fact. We sorted these together.

Stunning Start – Victorian Classroom

On 13th September 2017, Moons Class went back in time to be year two on 13th September 1844. When Mrs Morris came out to see us in the morning, she gave us all a Victorian name and rang the bell for the start of school. We started the day with prayers and drills. Then we did our reading lesson. Doris and Ivy had to read aloud to the whole class! Then we did some writing but unfortunately Mabel, Gurtrude and Jonathan had to wear the dunces hat for speaking when they were not told to. We practised the alphabet and then it was time for playtime. We had marbles, chalks for hopscotch, a football, skipping and hoops. After this it was time for maths. We practised our numbers and recited our times tables. Finally we had our Victorian Class Photo taken in the main hall.
