Our Literacy topics for this term are the same as last term [persuasive writing, explanations/recounts and plays]. The class wrote a recount of their trip to the cinema with everyone doing really good remembering of what they saw, where, who with and how they got there! We have also started practising a routine for our Christmas show but I can't tell you any more than that! In their 'explanations' the class sequenced how to put up a christmas tree then we put up our class tree which was lots of fun! For persuasive writing the children had to convince Michael Snowdrops teacher to let them all play together at lunchtime and we all went down to convince Michael once we'd completed our work! In our reading group session, some children have been practising their phonics and letter formation, some have been reading books and learning the core signs/symbols for the pictures, and some have been attending the 'Greatest Showman' sensory story!
