We’ll be using this video to kick off guided reading, this week, Y4.
Year 3 have been learning by teaching others. Taking a book of their choice they read the text aloud, created a joint story map and then questioned the younger children to deepen their understanding of learning.
Nursery have been learning the story of The Three Billy Goats Gruff. Using oral story telling they have learnt the story by heart and act it out with actions.
This week we had goats come to visit. The children had opportunities to feed the goats and stroke them. They have used the photos from this week to create an information poster. Did you know goats have four stomachs and only one row of teeth?
Within our PE session the children took on the role of both the goat and the troll. They began by exploring under the equipment like the troll who sits under the bridge. They then took on the role of the goats and trip-trapped over the bridge. At some points there was a troll and a goat, “Who’s that trip-trapping over my bridge?”
Thank you for a lovely World Book Day in the snow, Maple Cross. It has been a pleasure to see so much learning linked to reading today and our whole school story telling of The Three Little Pigs was a real highlight. Thank you to our visitors who came to read stories this afternoon. It was really special to share our love of books and reading with our wider Maple Cross community. Our library ambassadors from Year 6 did a fantastic job promoting a passion and curiosity for reading by first sharing story clues and then revealing the new book to each class in the school. A wonderful reading opportunity!
There are still books to be won as part of our special World Book Day raffle! Come and play tomorrow! Will you guess which books have been chosen by the teachers?
