Our Winter Poem ❄️🌲🦌☃️🍇
Mrs Worsell showing cherry class how it's done!
More snow day!
To prepare for writing our recount tomorrow, we thought of some time connectives that we could use.
We also discussed the features of a recount. We learnt that a recount is written in the past tense, the word 'I' is used, we have to include time connectives and we must include feelings.
This week in spelling we are focusing on the 'j' sound which can be made by a 'j', 'ge', 'dge' and 'g'.
We sorted words into a table and thought about some rules to help us remember where the words go.
j – usually at the beginning, never at the end of a word, after vowels
dge – is a trigraph, at the end, after a vowel
g – often spelt like this before ‘e’, ‘i’ and ‘y’
Before we write our diaries of Jack's day in 'Jack and the Baked Beanstalk' tomorrow, we thought about how to describe Jack. We used some lovely similes to practice what we were doing last week. Then, we described how he was feeling in different parts of the story and how his body would react to those feelings.
We also came up with some time connectives so that our diaries will flow from one event to the next.
We listened to some of the story of 'Jack and the Baked Beanstalk' and predicted what we thought would happen when Jack started to climb the beanstalk.
Would it be similar or different to the original story? How?
Here are our ideas.
What happens next …….
- Jack climbs the baked beanstalk
- Giant duck at the top with babies that lays golden eggs
- A giant castle with a giant living there, one nice and one bad
- More baked beans in a chest
- Baked beans for dinner
- Might find gold, eggs, harp, chicken, pig
- Duck chase Jack down the beanstalk
- Chop down beanstalk at the end
- And they all lived happily ever after
