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




Who lives in a place like this?

This week we have been learning about what a setting in a story is. We found clues in each setting and describing words in the word woods to match to each setting.
A warm, tidy, beautiful house in the woods. A pretty bed and beautiful dresses… Who do you think lives in a house like this?image

A cold, wooden home. We found 1 big plate, 1 medium sized plate and 1 tiny plate. We also found a huge chair, a large chair and a small chair. Who do you think lives in a place like this?image

Dark, gloomy, overgrown and creepy. We crept through the word woods wondering who we might meet. Who do you think lives in a place like this? image
