Week beginning 18th September
We have continued our work on the author Eric Carle and focused on the story 'Polar Bear, Polar Bear What Do You See?' This gave us an opportunity to learn about different animals and their habitats. We also learnt some new 'power words' which Eric Carle used in his story and tried to use them in our writing. We wrote about zebras 'braying', peacocks 'yelping' and flamingos 'fluting'. We enjoyed listening to these sounds on some clips and decided that flamingos really sound as though they are quacking!
Week beginning 11th September 2017
We have started our Awesome Authors topic by looking at the work of Eric Carle. Having already looked at 'The Bad-Tempered Ladybird', we moved onto 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar'. In Literacy, we sequenced the story and practised the days of the week. We also had a go at writing the story in our own words.
We looked at videos of Eric Carle and found out about how he creates his pictures. We then made our own caterpillar collages in the style of Eric Carle by first painting our papers. Once our papers were dry we made our own templates and used them to create our own caterpillars.
