999 Emergency on Stingray Street

999 Emergency

on Stingray Street!

The children of Stingray class were set a task of writing and recording a series of episodes on the theme of ‘999 Emergency’.

The series called ‘999 Emergency’ had to tell stories about a range of emergency incidents set in a local fictional community. Each week the scripts had to resolve the issues to make the listeners feel safe and secure.

Listen to what has been happening on Stingray Street and let us know what you think!

Jaberwocky Films

We have been reading the poem Jaberwocky by Lewis Carroll.

Here are some still pictures of the backgrounds and characters from the poem that we have used to tell the story. Please reply and tell Merlin all about what we have been doing and why you think the goblins will be entertained by the films.

World Book Day

As part of World Book Day we are going to write a story together using the blog. Each class will take it in turns to write a chapter for the book by clicking on ‘comments’. Number the chapters in order and include your class name and by the end of the day we should have written a story together as a school – fingers crossed! 🙂
