This week we have started our toy topic with a describing game. We were given a character which we had to describe to our partner without saying their name. Our partner had to draw the character we were describing and guess who it was.
This was really tricky to begin with but once we got the hang of it we were fantastic at thinking about which adjectives we should use.
We then watched the video below and thought about verbs. We came up with sentences such as…
“The soldiers slide down the rope.”
“The army men march through the hall.”
“The army men creep into the pot.”
What is a verb? Comment below with a sentence which uses a powerful verb to describe what the soldiers are doing for extra learning log points.
We have had a fantastic Christmas party day today! We started off with some party games in our classrooms. Then we had a visit from Father Christmas! It was so exciting! He gave us presents and we have taken them home with us tonight. After that we went to the hall to play party games with all of key stage one before we sat down to eat our amazing lunch! Thank you so much to all of the grown ups for sending in the party food, we were very full by the time we had finished.
After lunch Matthew the magician came to the school and we thought he was very clever and funny! Comment with your favourite trick that he did.
Over the last few weeks we have been learning about The Polar Express. We worked really hard to develop amazing descriptions of the settings that the train went through.
Some year ones have been lucky enough to have a special dance teacher this term. Today she taught us a polar express dance, here is a video of us doing it.
This week we used the book below to help us work on our problem solving.
