English

Start of a new year and a new term. In English we have began with working on producing some Winter poems. On the first day we shared lots of poems as a class and on the second day we went for a nature walk, we did this to spark some inspiration and expand our vocabulary.

Winter poem nature walk

A break from our topic because of a very special treat. Author Sean Perkins paid us a visit and read his book Oscar and Ben. The children got the chance to ask questions to Sean and thoroughly enjoyed the visit. 

 

What a treat eh!

Our newest class story “I want my hat back,” has sparked some great imaginative writing in English. We have even began using inverted commas in our work to show use of speech. 

 

Here are are some pictures of us as characters acting in role from the story. 

New half term means the start of a new topic! We have spent some time so far looking at different hats and questions we can relate to them ... 

More to follow.

 

 

Our gingerbread man visited many different places on his travels. From Blackpool to Paris. Rome to South Africa. He did eventually make it back to our school and now lives with us in class. During this topic the children looked at different styles of writing and expanding sentences.

 

We also enjoyed asking and answering questions, as if we’re were interviewing the gingerbread man.

Before finally the children wrote their own stories about his travels.

 

 

The gingerbread man.

Well on the way with our English topic looking at instructions. A mysterious box arrived and had a recipe for how to make a gingerbread man, the children gave clear instructions and continued to learn the story of the gingerbread man.
