This afternoon, we joined with Year 5, our partner class, for a shared reading session. We chose a book from the reading area to read with our partner in Year 5. We took it in turns to read our books to each other. At the end of the session, Mr Stephens also read some of Year 5’s class book ‘The Witches’ by Roald Dahl, we enjoyed listening to a different book and sharing our books with Year 5.
This afternoon, Year 1 met with their partnership class (Year 5) to take part their first ‘Be the best you can be’ of the school year. The children were setting the starting scores ready to try and improve them next month. The children in Year 1 really enjoy working with their friends in Year 5 to help them achieve and be the best they can be.
Year 1 have been listening to ‘ The Wolf and The Three Bears’ during Class Story time. We discussed the similarities and differences to the story of ‘Goldilocks’. Year one decided that Goldilocks is a naughty character in both stories!
In the story Grandma and the Wolf are planning a party for Baby Bear’s party. Year one made ‘Cheesy snip snap’ biscuits, just the same as the biscuits they made in the book for the party!
We talked our ingredients and discussed each step of the recipe. We focussed on repeating imperative ‘bossy’ verbs – put, stir, cut, weigh, grate, roll. We are going to write the recipe in English this week!
The children were impressed with results of their baking and thought the ‘Cheesy snip snaps’ were delicious!
