Week 10 & 11
As part of our Fables unit in Literacy, reading the book 'War and Peas,' the children have been thinking about how each character feels in the story. They have written their own thought bubbles to show what the Rich King might be thinking and they have written diary entries to show how the Lion King felt when he met the Rich King to beg for food.
The children have also made their own posters, to help them remember 'the good ingredients' of a fable. Now the children are going to choose their own problem and see if they can create a fable of their own.
You can support your child at home by asking them if they can remember all of these ingredients!
Weeks 8 & 9
The children have loved learning about Light as part of our new topic in Science this half-term. We have learnt that light travels in straight lines and talked about what a light source is. The children loved creating their own 'bowlful of bubbles' and using CDs to explore the 7 colours of the visible light spectrum.
After making our predictions, we investigated different materials to find out which reflect light and thought about what reflective materials could be used for. The children loved going in the dark tent to see which colours showed up best in the dark!
You can support your child at home by asking them which materials are reflective and making a list of why reflective materials are useful.
In Literacy, the children have enjoyed reading lots of different fables and thinking about the morals in the stories. We have been using the book 'War and Peas' by Michael Foreman, to write diary entries about meeting the 'Fat king' using conjunctions in our writing. The children have loved creating their own 'dreamlands' made of food and describing them using mouth-watering adjectives.
On 'No pens day' the children focussed on the food fight that takes place in the story. They painted some fantastic scenes and then wrote a newspaper report about what happened. We can't wait to read the rest of the book and find out how the story ends!
You can support your child by asking them to retell this story and explain the moral.
