We have been learning about pirates as part of our topic. One of the stories we have read is Pirate Pete. We have written stories about Pirate Pete and then we wrote our own stories based on the story we read as a class. The children really enjoyed the story and practised talking like a pirate. Below is a link to another Pirate Pete story your children may enjoy.
We were very lucky to have some pirates who visited our classroom. We were able to ask them lots of questions using the question words we have been looking at in class. We then wrote lots of questions for pirates. Such as "Where do you sleep?" "What is your favourite thing?" "Who lives with you?" "Why do you like gold?" We love learning about pirates and writing about them!
This term our topic is Bog Baby and some of our English learning will be based around this book too. Here is a link to a retelling of the story.
In English we started learning about imperative verbs. We learned that we need verbs in all our sentences and that they are action words. We use imperative verbs to give instructions! We had lots and lots of fun using verbs to play Simon Says...verbs are loads of fun! We then used verbs to give each other instructions when building with Lego. We also used adjectives and prepositions to make sure our instructions were accurate and detailed.
We started our topic 'Once Upon a Time' by talking about what we already know. We shared our favourite stories with our friends and talked about the characters, language and settings. We found out that all Fairy Tales have 'goodies' and 'baddies' and that the goodies usually win. Most Fairy Tales have a happy ending and that is why most of us like them so much. The most popular stories in our class were Snow White, Jack and the Beanstalk and The Three Little Pigs.
