This week we have been thinking about anti-bullying week and how we can all be friends. Today we shared lots of ideas in circle time about how we can show kindness and be a good friend.
This week we have focused on time. We started the week by ordering the days of the week and months of the year. We learnt a new dance and song to help us remember the months and we really enjoyed it. We then moved on to talk about different times of the day and linking activities to the correct times of the day. Finally we started to look at telling the time using the clock face, Mrs Jones could not believe how well we could tell the time and how quickly we picked up telling the time to half past the hour.
This week in English we started to focus on ‘The Three Little Pigs’. We have had a very busy week, learning the story the whole way through. We developed actions to support our retelling and we are very good at retelling the story. Mrs Jones is very impressed at how well we learnt the story. To support our retelling, we have also focused on story maps and our use of descriptive language to make wanted posters to help the big bad wolf. The children have worked very hard this week and I am sure you will agree they have learnt the story well.
Today Key Stage 1 joined together to share the stories they have been learning in their English lessons. Puffins have learnt the story of the Three Little Pigs and Toucans have learnt the story of Little Red Riding Hood. Both classes have managed to learn them in just one week! This afternoon each class performed their story to the other class. Both classes did a fantastic job. It was amazing to see all the children joining in with every part of the story. Over the next two weeks both classes will be changing the story and writing their own versions so in two weeks time we will come together again to read our own stories to each other. We are all very excited and our teachers are extremely proud!
