This term we are learning to write poems. Our work will be focused around the poem 'An alien stole my underpants' by Brian Moses. We will be writing our own poems using adjectives.
In English we have been reading The Day the Crayons Quit and The Day the Crayons came home.
Our focus has been on writing letters and postcards. We have collected postcards from home too and looked at where they have been sent from on the map.
When you read your reading book at home, can you spot any new words? What do they mean? Do you need to use a dictionary to help you find the meaning? Can you find a synonym for your new word? How about finding an antonym...
When you do this, log it in your journal so that Mrs Hall can be excited by all of your new words. How about putting the new word on to our vocabulary display in the classroom?
Reading for Pleasure
Our class novel this term is 'The Wizard of Oz'. We read as a class, discuss the language.
