This afternoon, Year 2 have celebrated the Big Bad Pig turning into a friendly character in our latest version of The Three Little Pigs. At the end of the story, the Big Bad Pig sang and danced with the three little wolves using his own tambourine. The children have made their own fantastic tambourines and have even attached their own bells. Great job!
After reading the story ‘Pumpkin Soup’ we decided to make our own pumpkin soup! We wrote a list of ingredients which included parsnips, onions, turnips, carrots and of course a pumpkin! There were mixed reviews amongst the children but there was a delicious smell in our classroom.
Year Three have been busy this half term designing some different clothes for the Flintstones! They have learned to make their own templates and use the templates to cut a piece of material accurately, to thread their own needles and how to use three different stitches. I was really impressed with the children’s resilience when problem solving and their independence! I think the parents, carers and friends of the children will be impressed with their finished outfit! We have these up on display for you to see on Open Evening!
This week we have been reading an alternative version to The Three Little Pigs-The TRUE Story of The Three Little Pigs. We discovered that in actual fact, the Wolf was not a mean character after all, but a desperate, poorly character who called upon his neighbours for a cup of sugar, whilst suffering from a very heavy cold! You see, the Wolf was making a surprise birthday cake for his granny when he realised he needed some sugar. After a huge misunderstanding, the Wolf ended up in jail and granny never received her birthday cake! Year two have rectified that problem today. The children have followed a set of instructions to make granny a birthday cake, they have used their directional language skills to write a set of instructions to direct the Wolf out of jail and they have identified lots of different features that written instructions have. A very busy, enjoyable day! I wonder if the children can remember some of the features all written instructions need? We will be including these in our written instructions tomorrow!
Our morning began identifying different units of time through seasons, months and days of the week. Closely followed by making, drawing and reading analogue clocks to the hour. Take a look at the afternoon time challenge, involving a famous landmark in London.
As part of Sports Week, we have been thinking about eating a healthy balanced diet and not eating too many sugars. Some of us thought that this could be tricky because we have a sweet tooth so we decided that we could eat natural sugars like those found in fruits. We used our bridge technique to cut pieces of fruit and make our own fruit kebabs which were eaten in seconds!
