Today we started our new book, however were only shown this photo! They don’t even know the title of the book! The children discussed what they could see in the picture, what their favourite toy is and where they think the picture is!
We have been looking at 'upgrading' the adjectives we used. We catogrised the words into a "zone of relevance". The children then added their own words.
Today we looked nouns linked to Winter. We had snow, ice, hats, gloves and scarves. We then thought of different adjectives to describe what the nouns felt and looked like. We then thought of different noun phrases. ⛄️ ❄️
As part of our new book, Mrs Little brought in some objects that her family had in their pockets when they were soldiers in the war. She brought in photographs, old coins and a wooden heart carving that her Grandad carried in his pocket.
This morning we started our new English book. We read the book “where the poppies now grow” which is about two friends in the war. We then watched the the Remembrance Day video, which made us quite emotional. We then discussed what would go in a soldiers pocket. We thought of different things such as a prayer, a poppy, a photograph and a teddy.
During Guided Reading, we were using a magnifying glass to search for split digraphs!
We have now written our candle poems - enjoy reading some of them!
Today we wrote a noun and thought of different adjectives to describe it! We then challenged ourselves to put it into a sentence!
We have started our new English topic today poetry. We looked at a candle and how we can describe it. We then looked at other nouns linked to the candle such as the wick, wax and flame. We went into the hall to practice moving like the flame of a candle would move!
Yesterday we planned our story of “Trust me Jack’s beanstalk stinks” and today we used postit notes to change some of the story such as the characters, setting and problem!

Today we had a little drama within our English lesson. Over the last couple of weeks we have been looking at the story of “Jack and the Beanstalk”.

We had lots of children hot seating “Jack”.The. children really loved pretending to be a character and also asking a “character” a question!
