Evil pea has been up to his old tricks again. He captured Supertato and the other teddies from class 6 and tied them up. We made our own Super heroes in class and at home to help save 'the teddies in distress'.

We then wrote our very own story about a new superhero called 'Supercarrot' who used his super speed, super strength and a jet pack to save to the day. 

This term when writing we have been learning to:

  • Write our name with the correct letter formation.
  • Robot talk the words we want to write and write the correct sounds in order.
  • Talk about the pictures we have drawn.

  • Try and use full stops at the end of a sentence. 

 

 

 

 

 

So far this term we have been getting to know each other, making new friends and engaging in many different ways with our new learning environment . 

We have been learning all about our bodies and how to keep them healthy and safe. We have also been learning how to be a good friend and ways to be independent. 

 

We had a visit from the Gruffalo in class; he left footprints, leaves and two presents for us . When we opened the first present we found 'The Gruffalo' story book but all the pages were blank. We decided that the Gruffalo must be wanting us to fill the story book in with pictures and writing so we soon got to work.

We have also been busy making the Gruffalo and the other characters from the story out of playdough, planning, drawing and then building a home for the Gruffalo to live inside and counting and pegging the correct amount of purple prickles onto the Gruffalo's back.
