Authors in RF
Friday 4th May | No comments yet
Last week we went to The Rainbow Factory and had a fantastic day experiencing the story of Jack and the Beanstalk. The children were so enthusiastic about story that we have had a story focus this week.
On Monday morning, the children arrived to discover a very tiny door had appeared on the corner of the whiteboard. They chatted amongst themselves as to where it might have come from or who it belonged to. The children suggested we have teams to be able to talk about the door so we used the very popular PE vests to distinguish each team. The children had some amazing ideas and we wrote them all down. Then each team drew a story map turning their ideas into stories. We also found pictures on the internet of various things they wanted in their stories such as castles and hens! The final stage of being authors was writing the stories. Each team wrote its own story with each child contributing to the writing. All the children in the team helped by reminding about capital letters, finger spaces and full stops. Everyone helped to sound out or spell the tricky words.
The children are very proud of their work and there are some photos below of all the stages but please have a look at the work in class and talk to your child about their work. We ended the week by acting out parts of our adventures in PE.
Next week we will be revising all the Phase 2 and 3 phonemes we have learned and doing lots of mathematical problem solving.
Have a good weekend, from the RF team.
