Monday 26th June 


Today we read the Monster Pet by Jan Pienkowski. A story set in a fantasy world and using repeated  patterns and rhymes. The children created their own monster pets and posters to care for their pet. They also made finger puppets so they could retell the story in their own words.

Today we read the Runway Pizza by Brenda Parkes. It is a re telling of the traditional tale - The Gingerbread Man. The Children enjoyed joining in with the rhyme the cheeky pizza shouted at all the people trying to catch him. 

The children and their parents thought of interesting words to describe the pizza and completed some pizza inspired maths work.

Summer Term 2017 



Our first book this term was Pig in the Pond by Martin Waddell.





We had lots of fun listening to the story. We played babble gabble with our parents, listing all the different animals that could be found on a farmyard.
