World Book Day 2018
Our children looked fantastic and had a lovely day taking part in World Book Day activities. Thank you to all of our parents who supported their child in dressing up as their favourite character or bringing in their favourite book.
Spring 2 2018
We are studying the novel "The Giraffe and The Pelly and Me". We will looking at the storyline carefully and using our comprehension skills to answer a style of different questions. We will also be developing our creative skill while working on our own personal spelling, grammar and writing targets. We will write for different purposes and say out loud what we are going to write about and will re-read our work to check that our writing makes sense. We will identify the characters and using role play (Drama) to retell the story from one character’s point of view. =
Spring 1 2018
The children will be reading our novel called, ‘Fantastic Mr Fox’. They will make predictions, participate in discussion about the story and will become increasingly familiar with how a novel is written. They will write for different purposes and say out loud what they are going to write about and will re-read their work to check that their writing makes sense. Children will identify the characters and using role play (Drama) to retell the story from one character’s point of view. Children will also be writing a non-fiction piece of work at the end of the topic and an independent piece of work called ‘big write’ will take place every Friday.
Autumn 2- 2017
We have started to read the Dick King-Smith novel Hodgeheg.
Max is a hedgehog who lives with his family in a nice little home, but it's on the wrong side of the road from the Park where there's a beautiful lily pond and plenty of juicy slugs, worms and snails!
The busy road is dangerous but Max is determined to make his way across. If humans can do it, why can't hedgehogs?
His first attempt ends in a nasty bump on the head and, when Max tries to speak, he realises his words are all mixed up. He is no longer a hedgehog but a hodge-heg!
Still determined to fulfil his mission, Max discovers the best way to cross the road - with the help of the lollipop lady and some careful detective work . . .
