2nd December 19
As Christmas fast approaches, the last week before Advent starts involved an abundance of creative activity here at Falcons School for Girls and Peregrines Nursery School. With Year 6 getting into character as World War One soldiers, the whole school partaking in Design & Technology activities, and designing their very own sheep for a tree at St Margaret’s Church in Putney. Read all about last week below.
Year 6 Get In WW1 Character
This week, Year 6 have been using emotive language to empathise with soldiers from WW1. Using figurative language and inference to describe scenes from the trenches, they produced some truly wonderful written work. The pictures show the girls in action as they recreated the memorable Christmas Day scene from WW1. Reading copies of some of the original letters from this time caused the children to ask some really thought provoking questions. I can’t wait to read their final written pieces, titled ‘Letters from the Front Line’.

Have Ewe Seen?
As part of the PFA’s annual decoration of a Christmas tree at St Margaret’s Church, Putney, all children decorated a sheep to match this year’s theme ‘While Shepherds Watched Their Flocks By Night’. Our pupils made a fantastic effort with an incredible array of materials and colours used across all year groups.
Design & Technology Day 2019
To celebrate Design and Technology Day, all of the pupils created their own felt decorations for the Falcons trees.
Children in EYFS and Year 1 produced mini stockings with Santa, reindeer and Christmas tree designs.
Years 2-6 chose from various templates and an abundance of ribbon, threat, buttons and sequins. They stuffed their decorations before sewing carefully around the outside. Well done to all the girls on an excellent display of festive creativity!
All of the fabulous decorations will certainly look beautiful on the Falcons trees in the run-up to Christmas!
