Stick Man

As the hook for our new learning theme, 'everyday materials', Year 1 have been reading the story Stick Man and creating their own stick people. On Wednesday, Year 1 explored the forest area and collected sticks that they thought would make a good stick person. The children also discovered some new flowers beginning to sprout through the ground and an interesting fungus growing on a log. Once the children had chosen their sticks they were able to select a variety of materials in order to create and dress their stick people, giving them their own characters and individuality. They all look amazing! The children have also been creating fantasy worlds during their computer lesson that their stick people would visit on their journeys away from the Family Tree. Year 1 have returned to school with fantastic attitudes towards their learning and behaviour, we are incredibly proud!
