We have had a very busy few weeks learning about the Titanic. We started our topic by receiving a ticket that allowed us to board the Titanic. The 1st class passengers were allowed to sit on fancy chairs and had cupcakes to eat while the 3rd class passengers had to sit on the floor and got a boring digestive biscuit!
During this topic we found out lots of information and facts about the Titanic that we then shared in an information report. We thought carefully about our choice of vocabulary and tried to join our ideas together using a range of conjunctions.
In Art we were inspired by an Artist called 'Jane Watson' who creates seascape pictures using collage materials. We practised using materials to create different textures and then created our own pictures using collage the Titanic.
Pirates - Aye Aye Captain!
We have had a great few weeks learning about Pirates. We have created wanted posters using lots of suffix words to add description, written stories about pirates and chosen our own form of writing e.g. instructions, information page, newspaper report or a story.
We ended our topic with a Pirate Day experience where we got on board Captain Armond's ship and set sail across the stormy, turbulent sea. We had to do lots of hard chores which made us exhausted and all we got to eat was stinky, smelly fish stew! The children decided that they didn't want to be a Pirate anymore so they wrote letters home to their families to persuade them to pick them up!
On our dress up day we enjoyed sharing our writing with Year R, finding the golden treasure and sharing our amazing treasure maps!
We have had another very busy half term! It began when we received a strange parcel from the postman. We opened it up to discover Puffy the baby dragon inside! Puffy really enjoyed visiting our classroom and helping us with our learning but he became homesick, so we had to create magical potions to help send him back home. We wrote instructions explaining how to make our potion using adverbs, adjectives and bossy verbs. Puffy used these instructions to help create his own potion to send him back home!
We then read the story 'The Dragon Machine.' Unfortunately George was fed up with the mischievous, cheeky dragons and wanted to send them back to their far away lands but he didn't know how. We helped George by writing our own stories that solved this problem. We then enjoyed sharing these with the Year R children using our dragon puppets to retell it. They really enjoyed listening to our stories!
We have had a fantastic first half term learning all about the Great Fire of London. We have been writing Newspaper reports thinking about using a range of conjunctions and interesting vocabulary. After we had written our report we became 'real life' news readers and read out our own reports. We practised using the 5ps; pace, punctuation, power, pitch and pause and tried to incorporate them into our voices when we read out our reports.
