For the rest of the half term in English the Puffins are exploring the journey tale ‘Where the wild things are’ by Maurice Sendak. Mrs Sargeant has been working hard getting this fantastic display ready for our own journey tales.
Today we have been focusing on retelling the story through drama.
The Puffins are hard at work searching a recording information ready to write their non-chronological reports in toys. The facts we have learnt so far have been great, we very excited to start the report writing now!
Welcome back Puffins hope you all had a great Christmas. We have been back working hard, we have kicked started our new year with research for our report on toys and understanding what the features of a report are.
In English as part of our Talk for Writing we have been learning a warning tale The Boy Who Cried Wolf. Today the Puffins demonstrated how well they know the story by acting it out. At the end of the session some children became the characters in our hot seat challenge, the children asked some great relevant questions to the characters and the characters responded very well. Miss Coghlan can’t wait to read the Puffins own warning tales at the end of the week.
We have been hard at work continuing our theme of pirates in history today. We used fact sheets, videos, books and internet searches to find out and record facts about the famous pirates Blackbeard and Anne Bonny. Here are some of the childrens work Lewis, Brooke and Frankie L.
Well done to all of Puffin class who have worked so hard this week to learn about instruction writing. Today they demonstrated their new knowledge by being able to rearranging mixed up instructions including the title, introduction, what you will need and method.
This week the Puffins have been preparing to write a non-chronological report for English based on Light and Dark. First they identified the features of a report and now we are using a variety of ways to record facts on light and dark.
