This term we have started our topic on 'Traditional Tales'. We have been talking about different stories, characters and settings.
To begin with we focused on the story 'The Elves and the Shoemaker'. In our maths work we have been measuring the length of shoes and exploring the 'difference'. In literacy we have been editing sentences from the story. We have been thinking about what we need to remember when writing sentences of our own. In maths we worked on estimating and explored difference when measuring shoes. We have a new 'Workshop' role-play area and a shoe shop too!
We then focused on the story of 'Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs'. In literacy we worked on descriptive vocabulary and wrote character descriptions. In our maths work we worked on sharing and had a pretend tea party. We made our outdoor playhouse into Snow White's cottage.
Finally we have worked on the story 'Jack and the Beanstalk'. We sequenced events in the story and wrote retells. We are trying to write in more detail and at greater length. We have been measuring the giants footprint, planting beanstalks of our own, but have also been learning about Mother's Day!
