Writing and Reading

The Scallywag and the Golden Underpants

Today in English we explored our book “Sir Scallywag and the Golden Underpants.” After watching the show and role playing the story we were able to create some ‘book talk.’ We talked about our likes, dislikes, puzzles and links to other books. You can see our wonderful learning below.

The Water Protectors 

We read the book 'The Water Protectors' which informed us of the damage oil does to the oceans and rivers around us. We came into class to find our very own river and decided to become Water Protectors! We made commands to make sure no-one would destroy our river but unfortunately oil spilt all over it! We had to make informative poster for the rest of the school so they knew all about the damage oil can have! 

Ocean Meets Sky 

This week in English a strange parcel arrived in our classroom. We opened it up and found lots of clues about the two main characters in our new story by the Fan brothers- ‘Ocean meets sky’. We created some predictions about what the book might be about on parcel labels. The next lesson we came up with some great adjectives and expanded noun phrase to describe Grandpa.

The Pirates Next door

This week we came into our classroom to find a very interesting message in a bottle from a new friend- Jim Lad. He told us to make our own treasure to remind us of him so we created treasure and added adjectives to them! We then read the story ‘The Pirates next door’ and acted it out using finger puppets in groups to help us remember the events in order. This will help us when we come to write our own version of the story.

Coming to England 

Our focus texts this half term is on Coming to England, an inspiring story celebrating the Windrush Generation. We found a suitcase left in our class so explored who some of the objects might belong to and where they might come from! Check out some of our learning. Our final outcome will be a biography of Florella Benjamin. 


Jim and the Beanstalk

We read the story Jack and the beanstalk and acted it out with props to help us become familiar with it. We wrote predictions about where we thought the giant beanstalk in our classroom came from and where it might lead to! Our final outcome was to write instructions on how to grow a beanstalk.
