This half term we have been reading different Julia Donaldson stories.
Today we are going to watch the story of ‘Room on the Broom’. We will then chat about the story, the characters, how they felt, what happened in the story and where the setting took place. We will blog our thoughts afterwards.
Please leave us a reply 🙂
We have been reading The Tiger Who Came to Tea by Judith Kerr.
We asked the children:
“What do you think a tiger would eat if it came to our school?”
Grace – The school dinner.
George – Our shoes.
Codie – Buns.
Eva – It would eat everything!
Neve – All the pears.
Rebecca – Carrots.
Eli – Pineapple.
We talked about our school chickens and whether the tiger might eat them.
The children thought they would be safe because they are in their coop. Isaac – The tiger could scratch to get in the coop.
Finlay had a brilliant idea – We need to make a lock for school to keep the tiger out!
We are having a porridge party with our teddies from home as part of our learning about Goldilocks and the Three Bears. We have donated to the charity JOEL and also school funds to take part in this fun day.
We have listened to bear songs, danced a bear dance, listened to bear stories and are about to have some delicious porridge.
We asked – If your bear was a wishing bear what would you wish for?
Chloe has been developing her fine motor skills through this fantastic cutting activity. Activities such as this are important for building the muscle strength and dexterity in children’s fingers that they need for writing. Great job Chloe!
This little girl worked really hard naming numbers 0-100. She then matched some of them and had a go at writing some of the numbers too. What a fantastic effort!
After watching the video Acorn class have verbalised their thoughts on this short silent film.
