Fairy Tales

This week we have started work on Fairy tales with our first story “Keep running Gingerbread Man”, which is an alternative to the traditional tale, where the story focuses on being fit!

In English, we read the story, made story maps and wrote our own retellings of the story. Some of us wrote alternate stories with different characters, which we really enjoyed!

We decorated gingerbread man templates with different spices, which made our classroom very smelly!

We also discussed what activities we do to keep fit, which ranged from walking to school to jumping on the trampoline to gymnastics to running 5K!

In Maths, we learned the language of capacity, focusing on empty, full, half full, nearly empty and nearly full. We enjoyed using the water to work out our capacity problems!

We have also started to learn how to do our joined up handwriting, which we are practising all over the classroom!
