Learning to fly high

Year 1 – Snowy Owls


Welcome to the Snowy Owls class - we are Year 1.

We are a motivated group of children who just love to learn. Our projects are always so much fun and we enjoy discovering more. We are independent and use our working walls to help us with our learning. We are kind and friendly and one of our favourite things to do is our Thrive activities - they are so much fun!


A Knights Tale


Following the visit to the castle, the children will plan their own ‘Knight’s Tale’ to replace Richard II ‘s lost stories and puppets. They will create their own stories based on their experience at Portchester Castle and experiment with a range of drama techniques to enable them to write imaginative stories. The children will research facts about castle life, find out about knights and will interview a character from the past to add historical detail to their stories. When making their puppets, the children will select resources carefully to design and make puppets which will bring their stories to life. At the end of the project, children will transform into medieval storytellers and share their stories and puppetry at a banquet.
