Helping Wizzy Witch,

We decided we would find some rhyming objects to put in Wizzy's spell!
Can you say what our rhyming pairs are?

When we checked our blog today we found this message waiting for us! We got busy talking to Wizzy, trying to help her.

We hope she liked our ideas!

Arts Day

We had a drawing day and looked at all the different ways we could make lines. We used lots of different materials, both inside and out. We made long lines and short lines, thin lines and thick lines.

Can you find some different ways to make lines?
Tell me what you used. 


A big thank you to the parents who joined us on Wednesday morning to find out how they could help their children use the blog :-)

Today we added a new character to the story 'Room on the Broom'.  We decided where we wanted our new character to go in the story and what they would find that the witch had lost. Then with a partner we retold our story with our new part added in, stepping each box from our story map as we told it.

Which character did you add to your story and what did they find that the witch lost?

Pyjamas and Breakfast

Today we came in to school early in our pyjamas and had breakfast together. It was very exciting and we are quite full now!

Our Illustrator Visit

On Wednesday we had a visit from the illustrator Stephen Waterhouse. He read one of his stories to us in assembly, 'The Runaway Chapatti' and then in the classroom we created our own characters and storyline after looking at his pictures.  We did some fantastic drawings and Stephen thought we were very good illustrators!

Which characters did you draw? 

Who was your greedy character?

Marvellous Mark Making!

Room on the Broom

We are learning the story 'Room on the Broom' in our literacy work. We have been listening to the story and making story maps to help us retell the story.

We have 'stepped' our story while we have told it.
