Working Hard

You could hear a pin drop in year 2 this morning as children worked incredibly hard on the start of their ‘Lighthouse Keeper’s Lunch’ retells. All children were trying their best to make sure their handwriting was perfect and that they included all the grammar features they needed. I look forward to carrying on with the story writing tomorrow!

Well done to this week’s star writers, Modou, Lucy and Declan! You have all written some fantastic descriptions of your disgusting sandwiches. They sound absolutely dreadful! Great job children. Keep up the hard work.

Year 2 Tasting

To help us design our own disgusting sandwich (inspired by Mrs Grinling’s mustard sandwich from The Lighthouse Keeper’s Lunch) Year 2 have been investigating the taste of lots of different foods today. The aim of the investigation was to find the most revolting ingredients for our sandwich (to keep the seagulls away) and to explore different adjectives which we can later use to describe our creation. Whilst the children had great fun, they weren’t too impressed with the foods on offer! Chilli powder, jalapeños, piccalilli, garlic powder, curry powder and marmite are definitely not firm favourites for the children! Let’s hope that the seagulls feel the same way!

Year 3 Authors

It looks like the children are just as excited as we are to finish our Beast Quest stories, judging by how many children have wrote stories in their special notebooks at home! Thank you children, it’s always exciting to teach children who are excited to learn.

Jasper’s Beanstalk

In the Nursery this week we have shared the story Jasper’s Beanstalk. Each family group have placed a bean in a bag and attached the bag to the windows. I wonder which bean will grow the biggest? Afterwards the children painted Jasper from the story, your artwork is amazing! Well done everyone!
