Fairy Tale Magic in Belmayne House
There is a magical atmosphere around the Pre-Prep 3 classrooms. During their literacy lessons this term the boys are investigating Fairy tales. The story of Rumpelstiltskin is a firm favourite with our pupils. They have completed a variety of tasks relating to the story and their teachers have been delighted by the excellent creativity demonstrated in a number of written assignments.
Fairy tales have influenced the pupils learning across the curriculum. In art lessons they have experimented with ink techniques to create the most spectacular story book wolf. This work caught the eye of Miss Frewin who is hoping to enter some of the pictures in a forthcoming art competition.
They have also have investigated the theme of food in Fairy tales. Here pupils considered items for Red Riding Hood's basket and made delicious pancakes. Understandably these were two popular activities. Everyone has clearly been very inspired by their work and there is an excited buzz around Belmayne House.
