Traditional Tales

In class we have been looking at several traditional tales, we used Pie Corbett’s Talk for Write to help us learn the stories and write them.

The Three Billy Goats Gruff

Livia created a brilliant story map, she thought carefully about the main parts of the story and the order they needed to go in. Livia used some words to help her when writing the story but it is mostly made up of pictures.

Seb wrote a brilliant version of the story using his story map to support him.

The Ugly Duckling

The Ugly duckling really made us think about the words we use to talk about people. Lots of the children said they didn’t like the word ‘ugly’ and thought ‘different’ would have been much better.

This is Ava’s story map.

Here are Jessica and Eve’s version of the tale.

The Gingerbread Man

The children had great fun telling this traditional tale; some of the children already knew parts of it. We looked at how different books can have a slightly different version of the tale. Some of the books had a cow in whilst others had a pig.

Hallie created a clear story map which allowed her to write a good version of the traditional tale.

We wrote some instructions explaining how to make gingerbread men. We then got to have a go ourselves.

Harriet used time connectives to help sequence her instructions.

The Three Little Pigs

Poppy and Eli created great ‘Wanted posters’ that could be displayed to help find the wolf from the tale.

We had a bonfire to link to our Outdoor literacy learning. We thought about the sights, sounds and feelings we had as we sat around it. It was very exciting. Mr Jackson said if we were really good maybe next time we could toast marshmallows!
The Fire brigade was super! They let us have a go at using their hoses. They are very heavy but super fun. Miss Igoe nearly got Mrs Saville!
The synagogue trip was good. The children were able to see inside the lovely building and experiences something new and different.
Science was great fun, we did three different experiments and for each one we thought carefully about what might happen.

We have been looking at King’s and Queen’s from throughout history. We had lots of fun trying to work out who the monarchs were and when they ruled. It was fascinating finding out all about them, we especially enjoyed King Henry VIII. Here are a few pieces from the topic.

Tracey Corderoy was our next special visitor. She is a children’s author and trulycaptivated the entire class with her hands on workshop. The children had the chance to become illustrators which they thoroughly enjoyed. Class 2 have been working hard this term rehearsing for the Nativity. They have worked their littlesocks off and we can’t believe how amazing they have all been. The pantomime ‘Aladdin’ was a great success everyone loved it and took back lots of tips for acting on stage when they perform their nativity.

We very lucky to have a visit from PC Katie Lang last week. She talked to us about her work and things she did as a police officer. Katie told us about her uniform and some of the things she has to carry and when she uses them. It was very exciting! Katie also brought along the police car for us to have a look inside. It was great fun and we really enjoyed ourselves.
