Summer B- This half term, we have been reading the story 'The Parrot Tico Tango' about a parrot that steals all of the other animals' fruit in the rainforest. We have been practising spelling 3 and 4 letter words from the story and describing the fruit in terms of size, colour and adjectives. 



Summer A- In English, we have been looking at the story 'Oi! Get off our train' by John Burningham. We have started by role playing the story, We've each taken on a role of an animal and practised acting out what happens in the story. 


Spring B- In English, we have been looking at the Pixar animation cartoo 'Lava'. The children have enjoyed watching it. We've predicted what might happen next, discussed how the volcanoes might be feeling and talked about what has happened at each point of the story. 



Spring A- In English, we have been looking at the Chinese Zodiac Story: The Great Race. We have been looking at spelling some of the animal names, sentence work and opinions on the story as well as sequencing the animals in the order they came in the race.
