In Year 5, we are reading the novel Goodnight Mister Tom by Michelle Magorian. We are using the book in our Guided Reading lessons, where we have begun to look more closely at Chapters 1 and 2. We have also used extracts of the text to help us draw an image of a key character, Thomas Oakley. We are really enjoying the story, which is helping us to learn more about what life would have been like during World War II.
This week we have been talking about creative stories. We made up a whole class story, which even included a giant pink rabbit! We created our own story maps and used the junk modelling to create robots, castles, aliens and houses. We love listening to stories and making up own own.
Alicia in Year 6 was so inspired by The Secret Garden that she read during guided reading that she created her very own shoe box garden. Take a look…
Some children in Year 6 took part in a live workshop with Jamie Littler and learnt how to draw a cartoon illustration, they also discussed the key components of an adventure story. The children then wrote their own adventure stories.
Today Year 1 followed instructions to make fruity flapjacks. We then wrote about what we did.
Foundation Stage and KS1 are busy learning their phonics and tricky words at home and in school.
Today Year 1 had fun reading and writing our own animal riddles.
Today we thought about our phase 5 phonics. We had to use our digraph to create nonsense names for our aliens.
Today the KS1 children who were in school wrote their own wishing chair stories. First we read chapter 1 of ‘The Adventures of the Wishing Chair’ to get our imaginations going.
