Spring 1 - Week 1
We have kick started our Literacy learning this half term by discussing and writing our targets we aim to achieve by the end of the term. We discussed our strengths and interests with the rest of the class and thought about all of the different things we do in school. We then decided what we would like to get better at and used these thoughts to write our targets. Our targets are now displayed in our classroom.
Spring 1 - Week 2
This week we have introduced our first story of the term, relating to our topic 'Down on the Farm'. We have started to read 'Farmer Duck' and have focussed our learning around the characters in the story. Our activities have included; writing a list of the characters from the story, creating speech bubbles for the characters and then writing a book review to express our thoughts and opinions on the book. We really enjoyed this story, especially joining in with the animal noises!
Spring 1 - Week 3
Our learning this week has been based around the story 'A squash and a squeeze'. We have particularly looked at the rhyme within the story and have used this to create and recognise words which rhyme with farm animals. We have also identified and highlighted words that rhyme from the story and even played a game of rhyming Bingo!
Spring 1 - Week 4
This week, we have continued our learning of 'A squash and a squeeze'. We have really enjoyed using drama to imagine and recreate the roles of the characters, thinking deeply about how and why the characters may be feeling. We used hot-seating to think deeper about the story, the events and the characters. We really enjoyed asking and answering the questions from our classmates. After that, we re-designed a house for The Little Old Lady and used adjectives to describe the houses we designed. We thought very carefully about what the Old Lady would like.
