Highlights Spring 2018
The first day we experienced the ‘Beast
from the East’ the children put on their hats, scarves, gloves and wellies and
we all took advantage of a very rare opportunity to walk in the snow and
describe what it was like.
Rose – ‘I’m glad I’ve got my gloves on, the snow is so cold!’
Jordi – ‘I’m going to build a snowman.’
Sophia – ‘It’s so light and fluffy!’
Back in our classroom we talked about
the season and watched a video showing us how the weather changes from season
World Book Day and Book Fair
For World Book Day the children in RJ transformed
themselves into a variety of book characters, including Fairy tale Princesses,
Robin Hood, Alice in Wonderland, the Queen of Hearts, Willy Wonka, The
Gruffalo, Superheroes, Wally, Little Red Riding and The Big Bad Wolf. We talked
about the characters we had dressed as and explained why we had chosen them. We
created covers for our favourite books and talked about what happened in the
stories. We also read lots of books, including the sequel to our key text this
half term, ‘What the Ladybird Heard’.
We were also very lucky to attend
assembly where illustrator and author Karin Littlewood talked to the children
about her job and read her story ‘Immi’.
We visited the book fair Ms Oskis had
arranged. The children browsed the books and listened as Ms Barnett read a
story to the class.
