Viking Projects

Today we brought in our viking projects we had worked on over the holidays. Some of us brought axes, ships, weapons and some created fact files on the vikings. We showed our projects to the class. We then followed it into our Literacy lesson where we retold a viking story, using nouns and adjectives.

Reading Instructional Texts

This morning in Literacy we were identifying imperative verbs in our instruction text. We also identified the time connection which helped us notice the order and adverbs. We followed the instructions to produce our very own paper snowflake.

War And Peas

Today in Literacy we read through the story War And Peas. We answered a variety of comprehension question on the book. We described the main character, thought about where the story was set, all different interesting facts. Have you read this book?

Acting

Today in Literacy we were reading through play scripts. We focused on Goldilocks and the three bears.  We got into groups and decided between ourselves who was going to be which character.  We read through our lines and started acting out the scene of the story, changing our voices to suit our characters. It was so good!!

Farm Trip!!

Today we spend the day at Farmer Derek’s farm. We explored the grounds of the farm, making sure we used our five senses to relate it to our literacy. We recoded these by using out extended noun phrases. We then went searching for stones and stick so we can make our Stone Age tools. We had an amazing day!

 

Making Victorian Puppets

Our topic this term is Victorians. Yesterday, as part of our Art, we made victorian puppets. We are going to use these puppets in a play and are looking forward to writing our scripts for this!

Plant Sale Adverts

Today in Literacy we were making adverts ready for this year’s Plant Sale! We had to use all of our prior learning from this week about adverts so we could show our progress. We planned on paper and then used the MacBooks to create them.

The Gruffalo

We have been reading the Gruffalo in our Literacy lessons. As part of our learning we did a hot seating activity. We asked the Gruffalo questions about how he felt when he met the mouse. What would you ask the Gruffalo?
