As our topic this half term is ‘The Enchanted Woodland,’ we have been outside again to collect materials to make our very own mini woodland next week. You can tell by our faces that we had an amazing time. Have a look at our blog to find out more.
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!
