Great scholarship in 3SG

After editing and improving their excellent information texts, the children worked on their reading and spelling skills by accessing classroom resources quietly. A great example of using initiative and leading your own learning – lovely to see!

We are writers

4H have been working really hard to write about what Fairtrade is and how we can help to support this co-operative organisation. Your vocabulary choices are becoming so much more effective, everyone and I am really proud of how hard you have tried to plan in and include a variety of different fronted adverbials!

I look forward to reading and marking these pieces of writing in preparation for the production of our final product.

Comprehending Doncaster!

2P have been using their English lessons to read different texts about the visitor locations in Doncaster. They used their reading skills to answer various types of questions whilst also learning more about what Doncaster has to offer.

3GS are writers!

3GS have all worked really hard to produce some fantastic setting descriptions of their own chocolate factories, I was very impressed with the effort and imagination of everyone in the class; you should all be really proud!

Here are a few examples of their beautiful work:

We are getting quicker!

4H have been practising how to find words in a dictionary. It has certainly been interesting and the children have really had to grapple with the process of how to do this. As we made great strides of improvement yesterday, I began racing the children to see who could find the stated word the quickest. Methmi and Poppy were not happy that they were only a couple of seconds slower than I was! Maybe next week they will beat meā€¦

We are writers!

We have had great fun this week writing our own descriptions of different rooms within Mr Wonkaā€™s chocolate factory! Ideas were bubbling and expanded noun phrases were brewing then the creativity was really let loose!

I look forward to marking your final drafts.

We are Getting Smart

Using the dictionaries and thesauruses that Mrs Graves has recently bought for school, we have been able to find synonyms and antonyms without having to ask for help! We feel so proud of ourselves and will get quicker at finding the words the more that we practise.

Thank you Mrs Graves, we love these!

Past Tense

In 2L this week we have been writing recounts and have been focussing on writing accurately in the past tense. The children enjoyed finding verbs and then used their magic wands to put them into the past tense. They knew to watch out for the sneaky verbs that were trying to catch us out by not ending in ed.
