Starbooks Cafe 

 

This term we have been encouraging independent reading in school through the use of our Starbooks Cafe. Each week we chose a few children who have been working hard in Guided reading and independent reading sessions to visit our Cafe. The children who get to visit the cafe get to enjoy hot chocolate and a biscuit while reading and discussing their favourite books. 

Greek Mythology

 

This week in English we have been listening to lots of different Greek Myths. So far we have read and discussed Pandora Box and Theseus and the Minotaur. To help us learn the language features and structure of a Greek myth we made up actions to match the events in the story as we read together as a class.

 

Ocean Meets Sky 

 

This week we have been discussing the interesting words that are used in this book. We then used a thesaurus to help us expand our vocabulary choices. Finally, we used all of this knowledge to write descriptive sentences using similes. 

 

Ocean Meets Sky 

 

We are really enjoying our new focus book: Oceans meets Sky. This book is about a young boy who sets sail to find a place his grandfather told him about... the spot where the ocean meets the sky. This week in English we have been looking at all the different word types within this book. 

 

Writing a non-chronological report 

 

This week in English we have been using the facts we researched last week to write our own non-chronological report about Ancient Greek food. We also included some of the humour we made up to make our writing more entertaining. Why not head over to our Blog to read some

 

Writing to teach and entertain 

 

This week we have been researching facts about Ancient Greece. We have been focusing on the different types of food they would eat. We then looked at turning these facts into a short paragraph. We discussed how it is a bit boring to just read facts, particularly if it is a children's book. So we decided to add some humour into our paragraph and compare food from Ancient Greece to food we eat now. We then used this paragraph to create a short show.

 

So You Think You've Got it Bad 

This week in English we have been reading the book 'So You Think You've Got it Bad' . This book is full of historical facts, it covers what life was really like for children in Ancient Greece. Firstly, we looked at the presentation of the text and compared this with other Ancient Greece books. We then discussed the language used and discussed how it had a dual purpose: to inform and to entertain. We used all of this information to act out the text, we used gestures and expression to communicate with our audience.
