Literacy

We have been learning the story the Tiger Who Came to Tea. The children have been becoming more familiar with the story and have been practising their writing in extending sentences, using adjectives and conjunctions, using commas whilst writing shopping lists and writing letters!

 

Have a go at expanding these sentences:

 

The tiger was at the door.  The big, scary tiger with sharp claws was at the door.

 

The tiger drank the water.

The tiger ate the food in the cupboard.

The tiger ate a sandwich.

The tiger left.

 

 

 

Here is some examples of the children's work through the week.

This is our story mountain. As we climb the mountain, writing our story there is some vocabulary to help us with the start of our story, make our sentence openers interesting and to help to remind us to use our conjunctions.

We have been learning how to write complete sentences and compound sentences over the last couple of weeks! 

 

Our writing has really improved. Can you join my sentences together to make a compound sentence, using 'and'?

 

 

I went to the park                              I played on the swings.

 

I went to the shops                 I bought lots of sweets.

 

It was fun.                    I had a party

 

Can you write your own compound sentence?

 

We have been learning how to use adjectives in our writing!

 

Can you think of any adjectives for these pictures?

Think about describing what you can see, what you could hear, how it would make you feel and what you might be able to touch or taste.

Can you make a sentence about the picture using your adjectives?

 

Bring them in and share them with the class.

Everybody has been working really hard over the half term to create their special boxes. We have been sharing with the class why we have decorated them how we have and why our items in our boxes are special to us.

Great work everybody!

We have been learning a song about how wonderful we are as individuals called: Wonderful me!

Chorus:

Wonderful me

Wonderful me

There’s no one else that is quite like me.

Wonderful me

Wonderful me

There’s no one quite like me.

 

Verse:

I use my voice to sing up high

Float the notes like a bird in the sky

Take my voice back down below

How low can I make it go?

 

Chorus:

 

I can sing so softly you can hardly hear

You will need to use your ears

Or sing out-loud my voice so clear

Swells so strong and disappear

 

Chorus:

Or me

There’s no one quite like me.

Or me.

There’s no one quite like me.

Wonderful me!

We have been learning about poetry this week! We have been looking at different aspects of poetry, such as alliteration, repetition, ellipsis and rhyming words. Here's one the children enjoyed:

 

The Hairy Toe

Once there was a woman who went out to pick beans and she found a  .... hairy toe!
She took the Hairy Toe home with her and that night, when she went to bed, the wind began to moan and groan.
Away in the distance she seemed to hear a voice crying,
"Where's my Hair-r-ry To-o-oe? Who's got my Hair-r-ry To-o-oe?"
The woman scrooched down, way down ... under the cover, and about that time ...
The wind appeared to hit the house, SWOOSH, and the old house creaked and cracked like something was trying to get in.
The voice had come nearer, almost at the door now, and it said,
"Where's my Hair-r-ry 
To-o-oe? Who's got my Hair-r-ry To-o-oe?"

The woman scrooched further down, under the covers and pulled them tight around her head.
The wind growled around the house like some big animal and r-r-um-mbled over the chimbley.
All at once she heard the door cr-r-a-ack and something slipped in and began to creep over the floor.
The floor went cre-e-eak cre-e-eak at every step the thing took towards her bed.
The woman could almost feel it bending over her bed.
Then in an awful voice it said:

"Where's my Hair-r-ry To-o-oe? Who's got my Hair-r-ry To-o-oe?"

 

 

 

 

"YOU'VE GOT IT!"

 

 

 

 

 

Can you spot my rhyming words?

 

 

can                            boat                                        light                              fan

We have been learning about imperatives (bossy verbs) and time connectives this week, so that we can give clear and ordered instructions.

 

Can you spot the imperative?

 

Stand up!

 

Walk to the door.

 

Shut the door.

 

Sit down on the carpet.

 

What time connective would you use for each instruction?

 

Finally              Next                      First                 After that

 

 

We have been on a bear hunt. Linking our geography with our literacy the children have created maps with symbols of all of the things we came across on the hunt, listening to Michael Rosen telling the story.

Here are some of our maps.
