Today we started our new story The Smartest Giant in Town. We read the first section where the giant walks through the local town and bumps into a giraffe. The giraffe moaned that he was cold and needed to warm up, therefore we all needed to make a tie for the giraffe to warm up his long neck!
Today in crew, we continued to develop our handwriting and showed we were working hard to get smart by – sitting our letters on the line, forming them from the correct starting point and ensuring our letters are of a consistent size. We then voted as a crew who had made the most progress to win the magic handwriting pen 🖊️
Leo won today, even though he voted for someone else ♥️ which also shows just how kind he is.
In today’s experience lesson we read the last part of the tale of Hansel and Gretel. Once they had gone into the house they found out it was a nasty witch who owned it. The witch kept Hansel in a cage to fatten him up to eat and made Gretel do lots of horrible jobs. We loved acting out the different parts of the end of the story. Our favourite bit was when Gretel pushed the witch into the oven and they found all of her treasure so they were rich!
We had some great acting and super listening ears and magnet eyes in the audience!
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.
Today for our experience lesson we learnt that Hansel and Gretel stumbled upon a gingerbread house deep in the forest. We couldn’t resist having a go at making our own. The children worked collaboratively to build their houses which proved quite tricky!
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!
In this mornings writing lesson I have been so impressed with the following children for their beautiful handwriting and fab ideas! We have been working really hard in our writing lessons to become better Y1 writers and we really are starting to show everything that we have learnt.
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.
