We explored the texts 'Little Red' and 'The Very Hungry Lion', reading them carefully, looking at the themes and comparing them.
We have retold the story of Little Red thinking about sentences, describing words.
Next, we thought about both the wolf's plan Little Red's plan and created s-plans for our work and then wrote instructions.
We have been writing character descriptions of Little Red.
Our next piece of learning was looking at the plans made by the Lion and we also thought about what Little Red’s plan might be. We used adverbials of time and noun phrases to improve our writing.
We have been thinking about what makes a good set of instructions. We wrote a taster draft of instructions on how to get ready for school and then worked on improving our sentences by using great verbs, adverbs and extending our ideas with conjunctions and added detail. Look how we got on..
We enjoyed the book Pumpkin Soup and are going to use our instruction writing skills to write a recipe next.
Our class plan for pumpkin soup - watch out for delicious recipes coming soon!
We loved reading the book “How to Wash a Woolly Mammoth.”
We worked on our shared reading and reading out loud and then had a go at making inferences and answering questions about the text. Why did they need a TRAMPOLINE?
Using “Emily Draws..” we learnt how to draw a Woolly Mammoth to illustrate our work.
Emily Gravett looked at our pictures of Woolly Mammoths on our website and messaged us..."What fabulous drawings of mammoths! Your class did really well... Emily X"
We practised using speech marks by writing conversations between the little girls and the Woolly Mammoth.
This week we have looked at the book “Blue Penguin”.
We unpicked the story and created S-plans to help us retell it.
We looked at pictures of Antarctica and collected some great vocabulary to help us write our setting descriptions.
This week, we have been working on our story telling skills by retelling the story of Blue Penguin using our picture a plans. We have used our descriptive words to bring our stories to life and made use of the practise we did last week on punctuating speech.
