Today we celebrated World Book Day! We all brought in our favourite books or prop from our favourite book. We discussed what we like about the book, why the book is special and who reads it to us. We then spent time reading and sharing our books with a friend.
This morning we found a bag and a letter from Rabbit! He thanked us for our letters and said we have some great ideas. He said that he is going to say thank you to Bear for stealing his hat. He said he has learned from his mistake and will not take somebody else’s property. Rabbit told us he was on his way back to the forest and asked if we could check his bag. We checked his bag and wrote a list of the things he has packed using our phonic knowledge.
Sean Perkins the author has come to visit Elm class. He has introduced his two characters with us - Ben and Oscar! He then read his exciting book with us!
We have exciting news!! The Gingerbread Man is back in CHORLEY!! We aren’t sure exactly where he is so the children have planned the adventure they think he might have been on in Chorley! Tomorrow the children will write up the adventure! Keep your eyes peeled in Chorley!
Today we arrived back in the classroom to find a brown bag with a letter attached to it! When we opened the letter we discovered it was from the Gingerbread Man! He wrote us a letter telling us he will tell us where he is if we write a description of the little gift he has left us! We had to describe what it looked liked, what it smelt like, what it felt like and what it tasted like! The children knew it was a croissant!
This morning a basket appeared in our classroom! There was a list of ingredients and some instructions to make a gingerbread man! So we decided to have an impromptu cooking lesson! We followed the instructions and made a gingerbread man and some gingerbread cookies for the children to try! 😊
This morning we practiced our story telling actions. We learned the story of “The Gingerbread Man”. The children then performed it as a class.
This morning the children read a book called “Dear Teacher”. The book had a letter from a boy called Michael, who wrote lots of letters to his teacher explaining why he is going to be late for the start of the school year such as he was working for the secret service! I then told the children about what I did in the summer holidays, I went to the moon on a magical unicorn and pinched sandwiches and crisps from the aliens! The children then opened their new English book and found a letter from me asking them to tell me all about their adventures, it told them to use their imagination! Some of the children told me they played with dinosaurs under the sea!
