Puffins class have worked very hard on learning the story of Going on a Bear Hunt for English and finally they got to do their own stories this week. They were able to sequence their writing using their story maps and even added lots of adjectives to make their writing more interesting.
Today the Puffins had a great guided reading session. They were all working hard independently to use their decoding skills to do a variety of activities such as Bug Club on the iPad, matching the sentences to the pictures, choosing a book they would like to read and developing their language in the roleplay.
As part of our instructions unit, the Puffins have read instructions to their partners to see if they could follow them correctly to make a pirate hat. Some were fantastic at listening and following instructions some not so good!
Today in English the children have been acting out our wishing tale ‘The Magic Porridge Pot’. After the superb performances the children in small groups devised questions they would ask the characters when we were hot seating. The children were great at using the question words and ensuring the questions were relevant to our story.
The Puffin class have been working hard on their cold task read to start their talk for writing journey tale preparation tomorrow. Miss Coghlan loves to teach ‘Where the Wild Things Are’ – we hope the children will love it too!
Over the last few weeks Puffins class have worked hard on developing their writing skills focusing on capital letters and full stops for simple sentences. Miss Coghlan is very proud at the great progress they are making.
This week the children have finished putting together their amazing non-chronological reports on pirates. They have worked extremely hard to included all of the facts they have learnt and all the key features of a report. Well done puffins they look great! They are now proudly on display.
