Week Beginning 7th November
In literacy, we have been practising using a range of different sentence openers to make our writing more interesting. We have used; ly words such as quietly, hungrily and greedily, nouns - Trees were swaying gently in the calm breeze as well as conjunctions - When the huge, grey elephant ran away, he stood on poor old tortoise.
We have been studying "Why elephant has a long trunk?" from the Tinga Tales of Africa, which the children have really enjoyed. Later in the week they will be writing their own version of the story.
Week beginning 31st October.
This week we looked at Henri Rousseau's painting "Surprised" and painted our own versions of it. The children were very careful to add detail with small brushes and enjoyed mixing their own shades of green.
