In Autumn 2, we have been making a fact file all about the ocean! We enjoyed reading the non- fiction book 'Ocean' and finding out interesting and unbelievable facts. We thought of our own questions and completed some research to find the answers.
Did you know that one of the smallest creatures in the ocean is a dwarf lantern shark?!
We have written a recount all about our visit to The Deep. We used photos to help us with our sentences and wrote about our favourite part of the day. We also wrote a thank you letter to The Deep staff. We spoke about the difference between formal and informal communication.
We have started to get festive toward the end of autumn 2 and have been looking at the story 'The Snowman' by Raymond Briggs. We have looked at the book, watched the film and looked at the song lyrics. We have sequenced the story and retold it to our partner. We thought about what we would have seen, heard, felt and smelt if we were James and flying alongside the snowman. We have used time words to write sentences, putting the events in chronological order.
We have concentrated on capital letters, full stops, finger spaces and adjectives.
The Old Toy Room
During Autumn 2 we looked at the story The Old Toy Room. We made a prediction about what could be behind the mysterious looking door and answered comprehension questions about the beginning of the story. We then sequenced the story and wrote sentences about the different parts of the story. We then used parts of the story to write statements and exclamations.
We enjoyed using the Edgar video for our last few English lessons before the Christmas break! We started by going on an Edgar hunt around the classroom and putting together the puzzle pieces of Edgar. We looked at Edgar's different features, such as his nose, eyes, horns, mouth and scales. We made a word bank of adjectives and used these to write sentences to describe Edgar.
