Langley Hall Primary Academy create their own Disneyland

This week has been an exciting time at Langley Hall Primary Academy at our Lower School site. Our Arts Award classes presented their finished projects! Year 1 couldn't wait to present their very own model of Disneyland! We studied Walt Disney in depth and spoke about how he imagined creating a special park where all of his characters came to life in different worlds. We decided to focus on creating: a main street that led up to the famous castle, then five different 'lands': Tomorrowland, fantasyland, toon town, frontierland and Adventureland. The children then detailed and created the various different aspects of these lands and characters to bring them to life. We created tickets and even a ceremonial ribbon that was cut to open our park and let the first visitors in! Year 2 have focused on CS Lewis and the Chronicles of Narnia. We studied the four main characters of the Pevensie family and spoke about what they could be doing after the final book in the series. This prompted us to write another book, our own Narnian tale with those characters. We workshopped the plot, character development, language and style that CS Lewis would use, the cover and even the title. Finally we agreed upon 'The Revenge of the White Witch'. After weeks of fine-tuning our story, the Year 2 proudly presented the finished product on Monday during a special assembly.
