For the past two weeks Class one have been reading the ‘Snail and the Whale’ and using this text to support their Literacy skills. We have been predicting what our story was about, using adjectives to describe the Snail and the Whale, re-telling the story through the use of puppets and finally writing about what our favourite part was. The whole class has enjoyed completing their Snail diaries. Well done Class one.
Year 1 and 2 have welcomed 2 new arrivals into the classroom. Cocoa and Cookie are sister guinea pigs that the class will be sharing. Year 1 have been very excited and have all been keen to get a glimpse of them both, as they sneak out for cucumber and carrot (pictures to follow).
This week in Literacy, Class One have started to look at a new story ‘The Lighthouse Keeper’s Lunch’. We have been working really hard on writing sentences using capital letters, full stops and finger spaces. On Tuesday all of the class wrote a sentence using adjectives to describe the Lighthouse Keeper and we had some amazing descriptions, talking about his beautiful orange jumper and his big furry orange cat.
Last weekend I adopted a rescue dog. He already had a name but it didn’t seem quite right, and as he is still quite young Mr Mercer and I felt he would be able to get used to a new one. We spent all of last weekend trying to think of which names would suit him but by Monday we still hadn’t decided. I asked Class One for their suggestions and as always, they had some super ideas. In the end our favourite suggestion came from Neeve BM. Thank you Neeve, Wilf seems very happy with his new name! 🙂
