Crew MW enjoyed their first Christmas story in the library today. We explored the story ‘There’s an elf in your book’ by Tom Fletcher. We loved deciding whether we should do the things that the elf was telling us to do or not and had lots of fun laughing at the illustrations!
Crew MW enjoyed their library visit again today! This week’s choice was ‘wiggle and roar’ by Julia Donaldson and Nick Sharratt. We loved listening to the rhymes and joining in with the actions! 📚
Some great collaborative working in our reading lesson this morning 🙂 We also looked at a variety of comprehension questions and worked together to find answers.
Crew MW enjoyed their snack and milk in the library today! We voted to read ‘The Very Busy Spider’ by Eric Carle. We really enjoyed repeating the familiar phrases and looking at the colourful illustrations in this story!
Today was our second Book Talk lesson looking at the poem, ‘My Own True Family’, taken from the book ‘My Heart Was A Tree’ by Michael Morpurgo. We recapped the purpose, audience and genre at the beginning of the session and then moved on to delve deeper into the features and vocabulary that had been used.
After reading the next part of Hansel and Gretel we learnt that Hansel and Gretel came across a gingerbread house in the middle of the woods. It had icing on it and lots of sweets. We created our own gingerbread houses in mini crews and had a competition to see who was the best voted by our parents. It was sticky work but we enjoyed eating it.
After reading the next part of Hansel and Gretel we learnt that Dad took them to the woods AGAIN! However, this time we dropped bread crumbs in the woods to be able to find our way back out. We saw lots of animals and felt even worse than we did the time before!
Today we have started reading Hansel and Gretel, at the start of the story Hansel and Gretel are told by their evil step mum to go to the woods with their Dad who should leave them there. Hansel thought of a great idea of collecting stones and leaving them as a trace to find their way out of the wood.
In today’s experience lesson we read about how Florence Nightingale looked after the poorly soldiers when it got dark. We learnt she was also called the lady of the lamp as she carried a lamp around with her in the evening. In our experience lesson we all created our own lamp to be able to be just like Florence. It was a tricky cutting and sticking task but we all followed the instructions.
The children played a game of hide and seek, whereby the children pretended to be Vlad the flea and hid in the hospital to make sure the adults (Florence Nightingale and the nurses) could not find them and kick them out of the new nice clean hospital. We then acted out looking after the poorly soldiers and gave them the medical care that they needed.
