Not A Stick
We have been reading the book 'Not A Stick'. It is a story about a pig who uses a stick for lots of different things, including a baton, a sword and a fishing rod.
The children had to use their imaginations and decide what they would use their 'Not A Stick' for.
Winnie in Space
As part of our Space topic the children have been learning the story of 'Winnie in Space' using Talk for Writing. The story is about Winnie the Witch and her cat Wilbur who go to Space in a rocket. When they arrive their rocket is eaten by Space Rabbits!
The children have been very busy designing their own space creatures and writing descriptions about them using adjectives. I have been very impressed with their work!
This week the children are changing parts of the story to include their own space creature. Take a look at the 'Big Write' link on our class page to read some of the children's stories.
The children have been learning all about Neil Armstrong in History for our topic 'A Study of a Famous Person'.
This week in English the children have been reading lots of facts about him in order to create a fact file.
