This week we have continued to look at places in the school grounds and have written an information guide. We tried to use our expanded noun phrases and prepositions of place.
On Monday, we were introduced to our new text 'Tidy' which was about a Badger called Pete who wanted his habitat to be neat and tidy. Little did he realise that he would loose his home when he decided to tarmac the forest because he felt that it was unsightly!
On Monday, we received a letter from Mrs Martin asking us to write a recipe for her favourite Halloween dish of pumpkin soup. First, we learnt how to make pumpkin soup and then we wrote our recipes, ensuring that we included time adverbials, imperative verbs and adverbs.
After we shared the story 'How to Wash A woolly Mammoth', We applied our learning about writing instructions to a new task. We wrote our own instructions including all the skills we have been learning this week...
Later, we read the book - Pumpkin Soup and used context to help us work out the meaning of unfamiliar words.
We ended the week looking at the features of instructions ready to write our own recipes next week.
This week we have continued to read Little Red and the Very Hungry Lion which led us to discover that both Little Red and the Lion both had a plan. Then we S planned each of the plans and retold them in an interesting way including expanded noun phrases, time adverbials and conjunctions in our writing.
