Today, we decided to try something a bit different and write a story as a class based on the 5 Sentence Challenge picture. We hope you enjoy reading it….
Early one morning, Jack got out of bed and put his smart uniform on. He went into his back garden and got his shiny red bike out of the dark brown shed. Jack pedalled quickly to the post office which was just down the road from his house. Mrs Browning gave Jack a ginormous sack full of letters and parcels. Jack put the sack on the front of his bike and went off to deliver the letters. He went to the village square and delivered lots of post. When he got to the village square he met the milkman. Suddenly, the church bells started to ring. Jack knew this meant it was lunchtime so he got off of his bike, stood it against the wall and went into the tea rooms for a sandwich and a cup of tea.
The children have been working in pairs to complete the challenge this week. They were thinking about questions they could ask about the picture. Can you spot the questions?
What questions would you ask about the picture?
Today we have been learning all about our new topic The Magic Toymaker. We all brought in a toy that was special to us and imagined what would happen to them after we had gone to sleep at night. Her ewe all are describing our magic toys.
Today we have been creating a piece of music to go with our story of the week, The Hungry Caterpillar. It was made even better by the fact that our dads and special people joined us to help.Have a listen to our masterpiece…
We looked at the book Room on the Broom, by Julia Donaldson for World Book Day. We had great fun designing our own magic broomsticks and imagining the far-away places it would take us!
In the afternoon we helped the Witch out with a problem….she was scared that the evil dragon was going to come and eat her so we investigated different “substances” and discussed which would be the best to trap the dragon. We decided that the gloopy cornflour and water mixture would be the best as the dragon would sink in it.
Today, we carried on with our work. The Year 1 children wrote their own version of the story, adding details of the broomsticks they designed. This afternoon we borrowed Noah and Elijah from Orchid class and had a wand making lesson.
Watch out everyone…we are now armed with magic wands…who knows what might happen….!
