Thank you for visiting our class page.
This term, our class's core text is The Gruffalo, written by Julia Donaldson. In this exciting story, a small, brown mouse walks through the deep, dark woods and encounters predators (first a fox, then an owl, and finally a snake). Each of these animals, clearly planning to eat the mouse, invites him to their home for a meal. The cunning mouse does not accept the offers, using clever tricks to escape danger and stop any further advances!
We will be using this great text to focus our writing to plan, draft and write our own versions of the Gruffalo. Will the mouse meet a badger, stoat or even a robin in the deep park woods before they encounter the Gruffalo? We will use the text to also support our GPaS lessons and look at different sentence types using adjectives to describe and different punctuation marks including inverted commas.
This text is one our our favourite books, but I wonder, have you read any other books written by Julia Donaldson? Which was your favourite and why? Have you noticed any similarities between her stories, or even the illustrations? This is something we will be exploring as part of our learning this term too!
Learning At Home
In this time of home learning, the children in Robin class have really enjoyed the creative challenges that have been set for them. These can range from cross curricular learning for example RE, based on our class topic itself as well as focusing on one of the core school values of tolerance, resilience, curiosity and creativity. Here are some examples of the children's creative learning from last term. Can you guess our class topic?
