Spring 2

Jasper's Beanstalk

 

This week in English the children have been learning about suffixes. They have learnt how to add -ed and -ing onto the end of words.

 

We have read the story 'Jasper's Beanstalk' to learn about the days of the week and worked hard to spot the suffixes in the book. The children have made a storyboard of the story and have changed the ending to say what Jasper found at the top of the beanstalk.

 

For their Big Write this week the children wrote their new Jasper's Beanstalk story and included the days of the week and suffixes in their writing. They did a fantastic job!

The children have planned and written their own rhyming poem about one of the jungle animals from the book.
Each class had to decorate their classroom door in the style of one of their favourite books, Year 1 chose 'Rumble in the Jungle'. Some of the children created lovely jungle animals from coloured paper plates whilst others worked together to make a paper chain snake!

For Special Interest Week Year 1 have been looking at the musical 'The Lion King'. They have learnt all about the different characters but have focused on Timon and Pumba. They have acted in role as chefs and designed a menu for a 'Minibeast Cafe'. They chose one item of food or drink from their menu and have written a recipe on how to make it.

We have also looked at the performance poem 'Walking round the zoo'. Later in the week the children will be making their own model zoo to use in their Big Write so that they can write their own poem based on the animals that we saw on our own visit to Blackpool Zoo.
