Miss Davies: November 2015
Hello and welcome back from half term!
We have had a good week in Base 2 settling back into school routines after the lovely break. I hope you have all enjoyed your time away. We have had a busy first week back and have worked really hard to keep putting to use all of the skills we learned before the holidays.
Our theme for the next couple of weeks is a pig theme. Using the quote from the story Charlotte's Web:
'Fern couldn't take her eyes off the tiny pig. He is absolutely perfect!'
On Tuesday we had a V.I.P guest in Base 2, a very important pig! His name was Dinner and he came to say hello to us! We had prepared some great questions to ask, for example:
Why does a pig snort?
Why do pigs have long eyelashes?
Where does a pig go when it is tired?
How old is the pig?
We learned lots from our lovely visitor. Did you know that a pigs' tail is not always curly? :) We had lots of fun!
The next day we were able to use all that we had learned in our writing and recall lots of great information.
We have shared another pig themed book, the traditional tale of 'The Three Little Pigs'. We then created wanted posters for the Big Bad Wolf after discussing adjectives.
We are looking forward to doing more work on this theme next week!
I hope you all have a great weekend!
