After learning the story 'Peace at Last' we then began to think about how we could describe characters using adjectives. We took it in turns to be 'Mr Bear' and said how we felt. We also thought about how Mr Bear looked. We collected a bank of great adjectives to describe Mr Bear and then wrote some describing sentences. Holly class have also been learning how to use 'and' and 'because' as joining words in our sentences to give the reader more information. We hope you enjoy reading our great sentences below...
Mr Bear was annoyed that he couldn't sleep. He was feeling tired. Mr Bear has a black nose and a dripping nose. By Mia.
Mr Bear was tired and grumpy. Mr Bear was sad because he didn't get to sleep. He was very unhappy and very sleepy. Mr Bear has a wet nose and furry ears. By Joshua.
Mr Bear is tired and he has a beautiful dressing gown. He has pink eyes and is wearing stripy pyjamas. He has a grumpy face because Mrs Bear was snoring. He was really grumpy. By Esmee.
Great writing Holly class!
In our English work we have been reading 'Peace at Last' which is written by our Author of the half term 'Jill Murphy'.
Holly class have really enjoyed finding out about what kept Mr Bear awake all night and they are all able to confidently tell the story using their own actions.
Marvellous map making!
Last week in our Geography learning we read a story about Little Red Riding hood and the route she followed to go to her Grandma's house. We memorised the route and thought about all the symbols we could use for each part e.g. the bridge, the woods and roads. We drew our own maps using symbols and a clear order for Little Red to follow. Holly class produced some fantastic maps. Some children then decided that they would like to make a 3d model of the route and some asked for BIG pieces of paper to make collaborative maps with each other. Fantastic mapping Holly class!
