The last two weeks have seen Year 1 take a fairy tale journey through the story of The Three Little Pigs and Little Red Riding Hood. The children immersed themselves in the stories by retelling them using action and expressive voices. They further developed their imaginative ideas by changing the characters from these stories and rewriting them to include these changes. For example we had, The Three Little Gorillas, The Three Little Foxes and The Three Little Unicorns. The children used time conjunctions and story language, such as once upon a time, ‘after that’ and suddenly!
The fairy tale journey continued in our computing where the children used the computers and laptops safely (following the school’s SMILE acronym) to create a WANTED poster for the wolf. The children are eager for him to be found!
Our science started off with a brisk spring walk looking for signs that spring had sprung! The children found daisies, cherry blossom and buds beginning to grow. We have been looking at both evergreen and deciduous trees and identifying these using their leaves.
Just a quick reminder Year 1 will be going on a school trip to the town park and library on Wednesday 16th May. Please make sure your child has a disposable packed lunch and a suitable coat and shoes.
