Today we welcomed a local children's author, Dan Worsley into our classroom. We enjoyed listening to his fantastic story, 'The Junk in the Trunk.' He inspired us to write some awesome pirate descriptions. Check out his website - www.danworsley.com You might just find some of our fantastic writing on there!
In maths,we have been solving yet more problems. We have been trying to find all the number bonds for different amounts. Lots of us are beginning to understand that if we work systematically, we will find all possibilities.
We have enjoyed making our own split pin Peter Rabbit this afternoon after learning all about the author Beatrix Potter.
We really enjoyed our special visitors this afternoon. Local author Tim Milner and illustrator Tania Sneesby came to talk to us about how they create the books. We loved looking at the artwork involved and it has inspired us all to keep practicing our own writing.
This week we have looked at another fantastic story written by Julia Donaldson called The Smartest Giant in Town. We have completed some fantastic writing describing the giant and also written a thank you letter to him for being so generous. This afternoon, we enjoyed making a giant tie. We thought carefully about our colouring and tried to stay within the lines.
What fun was had this afternoon when we took part in the competitive sport of worm charming. We used many techniques to try and coax the wriggly worms to come and greet us from the soil. We found that the worms loved listening to our tap dancing feet and that they responded to the vibrations of the garden forks. Even though we sang our little hearts out, the worms did not seem impressed.
We have been learning to use inequality signs. The children have been working hard to use and understand mathmatical vocabulary such as greater than, less than and equal to.
This afternoon, we braved all weathers to investigate habitats in our school grounds.
These children have been caught reading. Please send in or email any photos of yor child 'caught reading' so we can add them to our classroom display.
In our creative area, children were challenged to make a product which would carry a book.
In P.E, we have been developing our skills to work as part of a team.
During our first wekk back, we enjoyed doing a scavenger hunt.
Thank you to all the parents that attended our 'Share a Story' sessions over the past couple of weeks. The children have loved listening to the stories.
