Statement of Intent:
Here we are – In Literacy we took part in a whole school integration topic, ‘Here We Are.’ Our primary focus was to ensure that the children felt settled and happy to be back into school. This topic helped them to learn about themselves and the ever-changing world that they live in.
Traditional Tales – The children have worked very hard to improve their reading and writing skills by developing their phonic knowledge. We really enjoyed reading and acting out traditional tales, and writing short descriptions of the characters using simple sentences.
Here we are – In Literacy we took part in a whole school integration topic, ‘Here we are.’ We focused on integrating the children back into school and finding out about themselves and the ever-changing world that they live in.
A big focus had been on building sentences correctly using their phonics skills. We have looked at simple descriptions and used an assortment of characters from different texts to help us with our ideas.
Getting creative – The children in Class 3 have been working on writing their on version of a story. They had lots of fun designing their own characters and choosing the setting they wanted their story to take place. All of the children had some fantastic ideas and some even better stories!
Here we are – In Class 4, we have been studying a book called ‘Here We Are’ by Oliver Jeffers. Everyone in the class wrote a letter to someone special. We also studied a poem about things that are special to us and the class worked together to create their own poetry.
