Reading Blog news..
We have started reading our new book ‘Stick Man’ in Year 2 and after practicing reading through our story map with some great actions, we went on a hunt for Stick Man outdoors. We searched all over for the best ‘Stick Man’ sticks to create his body, arms, legs and super long nose! We love being outdoors exploring our environment and can’t wait to create our very own Stick Men next week.
This afternoon Year 1 stopped what they were doing and enjoyed a good book. First we finished off our class novel, then we had time to read on our own or with a friend. It was great!!!
In Early Years, we have started our new book, Grandad’s Secret Giant. We have learned lots of new vocabulary, discovered an enormous tooth brush and have been making traps to see if we can catch our own giant! The children have been drawing pictures of the giant with huge pencils too!0 Comments
We are delighted to see our friends back in school today and have been having fun in the sun playing with numbers and enjoying books, as well as writing letters and numbers in spooky slime indoors! What other spooky goings-on will there be this week?0 Comments
We are loving the book Supertato! The only problem is, the evil pea keeps causing trouble at school. He has thrown potatoes all over the floor and we have had to gather and count them, and he has trapped veggies in the shredded paper! We have been designing and making lots of traps to try to catch him!
We are so lucky to have not only wonderful school grounds, but a fantastic new kitchen in the EYFS. Today we started the day by harvesting our very own potatoes which have been grown at school. We washed them ourselves, then followed a recipe to boil and mash them, adding other ingredients (weighing and measuring carefully) and mixing well. Our bread smelt fantastic as it baked, and we enjoyed sharing it for our snack the next day. We are farmers and chefs, and a family that cooks and eats together!
This morning lots of our families and friends came to join us to celebrate how we have been learning through the story of “The Three Little Pigs”. We enjoyed showing them how we do character interviews and write news reports in our Newsroom, designed and built houses and dens with a variety of materials, and created our own game called “Chimneys and ladders”. This helped us to act as the story characters and to practice our maths skills! We will be having more fun at 2 o’clock!
The Big Bad Wolf has still not been caught! We have been reading and writing news reports about his antics – climbing onto the roof of the brick house and trying to get down the chimney! This afternoon we built more walls and a chimney, and took on the role of reporters, interviewing the wolf as he tried to get into the house!
One response to “He’s still on the loose!”
We had a great time this afternoon creating a huge chimney for the Big Bad Wolf to climb down! Then we had fun acting out the story again. We can’t wait for further construction challenges next week, and finding out more about 3D shapes!
The Big Bad Wolf is still on the loose in Fairy-Tale Land and has now blown down the stick house, and been seen near the brick house! We have been developing an in-class newsroom to keep up with events, interviewing characters and reading and writing news reports. We have also been writing and talking about our own news. To help the three pigs,we have been thinking a lot about shapes used to build houses. We have enjoyed using Kapla blocks to make designs with 2D shapes and will be building with 3D shapes next week. We have also started to investigate the different materials we can use for building so we can advise the pigs about their choices. The Fairy-Tale Land police have been on the phone again, and we have been helping with their enquiries. Phew! What a busy week! Thank goodness we can apply our Maths, English and Science skills to help the people who need us!
