Despite the restrictions imposed by the COVID pandemic, we still delivered the exciting Incredible Shrinking Machine Adventure to Classes 2 & 3 albeit on a reduced scale.
Children learnt lots about plants, flowers and insects as part of this Learning to Learn adventure. Many speaking and listening opportunities arose as the children interacted with Mrs Brown.
Children worked with Tan Draig, creative practitioner, to make huge worms, a blue tit, a blackbird and robins! Role play areas were transformed into Mrs Brown’s garden from the story. Children also made some beautiful butterflies. With classrooms filled full of newspaper, children became insects rustling in the undergrowth!
Much high quality writing and maps were produced by the children recalling their adventure as well as writing descriptions of Mrs Brown’s garden.
We placed the amazing creations on the playground so everyone could see the children’s brilliant work!
