Take One Poem
We learnt the poem, 'The Star' and added some musical accompaniment to our performance of it. We also had a fun time creating a piece of artwork inspired by the words of the poem!
The Star – published 1806
Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
How I wonder what you are!
Up above the world so high,
Like a diamond in the sky.
When the blazing sun is gone,
When he nothing shines upon,
Then you show your little light,
Twinkle, twinkle, all the night.
Then the traveller in the dark
Thanks you for your tiny spark,
How could he see where to go,
If you did not twinkle so?
In the dark blue sky you keep,
Often through my curtains peep
For you never shut your eye,
Till the sun is in the sky.
As your bright and tiny spark
Lights the traveller in the dark,
Though I know not what you are,
Twinkle, twinkle, little star.
We had a wonderful day learning about life in a Medieval Castle. The children spent the morning learning some of the crafts that would have been done in Medieval times including soap making, illuminated lettering, creating a gargoyle, making a cresset lamp, creating a wool bracelet, embossing leather and making a purse. They also had the opportunity to learn sword skills and how to cook pottage. In the afternoon, they all practised and performed entertainment and enjoyed food and drink together in a celebratory banquet. We hope you enjoy looking through the photographs!
