Parts have been allocated and rehearsals have begun! Please note: Mrs Swan, P2 Pupil Support Assistant, provides all children with costumes.
We are very much looking forward to performing to our peers on Wednesday 14th December and to our parents and families on Thursday 15th December.
Below are the song tracks for practising at home. Please note the pronouns of the Sleepy Shepherd and Angel are different in the the backing tracks. This year our Sleepy Shepherd is a girl (she/her) and our Angel is a boy (he/his).
As you can see from the script, each part is very important. Some pupils are needing to play 2 parts this year due to the small class size. Again, if you have any questions or if you predict your child will be away on these days, please come and speak with a member of staff.
The outcome that we will be aiming for is to… Be aware of how routines and events in the world link with times and seasons, and to explore ways to record and display these using clocks, calendars and other methods.
We start with asking what phrases, objects or words we know…
“Enough time”, Mustapha
“One at a time”, Zoe
“Time for School”, Mohamed
“Cleaning your mess takes a long time”, Aiden
“10 o’clock”, Mohamed
“Birthday, when I’m 5, then I’m 6…” Aiden
“In daytime I play with friends” Mustapha
What happens at night-time? “Hedgehogs, foxes, owls, Harry Potter fighting Voldemort” Aiden and Mustapha
“It is 9:59. One minute until 10 o’clock” Daniel
We covered what creates daytime and nighttime
…and brought in a dark tent and torch to move Pudsey into daytime and nighttime on the Earth.
To help space out the numbers when writing a clock, we write the 12, 6, 3 and 9 first, then fill in the missing numbers. We are writing and reading o’clock times on digital and analogue clocks.
