This half term in literacy we have been reading A Dark, Dark Tale. The children have loved it. They came into class and found A Dark, Dark Corner of the classroom with a spooky box...What was inside it??
During this half term the children have produced some great writing!
We looked at some poetry by a poet called Kit Wright and made up our own poem in the style of Kit. The children really used their imagination while writing and came up with some brilliant poems.
This Half Term's Star Writer is
Well done Emma!
The children have really enjoyed our work about the Hindu festival Diwali. They have found out where India is, made Indian sweets and acted out the story of Rama and Sita.
The children have settled in really well this week. They have enjoyed the introduction of the story Handa's Surprise that we are using throughout Literacy this half term.
The children were really hooked as Handa (aka myself) walked into the classroom!! We discussed the fruit Handa put in her basket and then tasted it. The guava wasn't very nice!
