We are story tellers.





20140624-095823.jpg We made story maps using pictures from You Choose. We love this book as it helps us to use our imagination to make up our own stories.
Can you use one of these story maps to make up your own story? You can either be an author and write your own story or you can be a story teller and tell someone else your story using different voices for different characters. I would love to see and hear some of your stories…

Farming Friday!







Today we continued to work towards the Bronze level of our Farming and Countryside award. We looked at lots of different seeds and talked about differences and similarities. We can now identify a sunflower and a broad bean seed. We all went on a leaf hunt. We discovered that there are lots of different trees in our school environment and used a leaf identification chart to help us find out what they are called. We have been learning about the properties of shapes in maths this week so this new vocabulary has really helped us talk about the shapes of the leaves and seeds. We all planted our own sunflower seed and learned about what they need to grow. We looked at different fruit and vegetables and learned about how to categorise them.
We are well on our way to achieve the Bronze award by the end of the year. Which level of the award are you working towards?

Farming and Countryside Award – Beginning at Bronze



20140610-105615.jpg In Reception’s assembly today we found out that we will be going back to the farm in two weeks to help us achieve our award. We looked at the booklets again and found the things we have not yet learned in order to achieve our Bronze award.
What do you need to do next?

Pirate show

Some of the children in Reception decided to do a pirate show. We made tickets, wrote cast lists and a big sign so everyone knew where to come for the show.image

A bed for Stick Man

After finding Stick Man in the tree house, Kyle wanted to make him a home. We made him a stick house and found a soft leaf for his bed. What else could we make for stick man and what materials will we need? Write your ideas as a comment on this post.


Word woods

This week we found a word woods in our outdoor learning area. There were some of our tricky words in there and some new, descriptive words. We read these words and matched them to the different settings we found outside too. We then thought of our own descriptive words and next week we will use these when planning a story. image
