Today, after helping Jack’s mum plan a dinner for the Giant and lunch for Jack, 1 Neverland helped again by writing out shopping lists for Jack’s mum. They thought carefully aboutique adjectives they could use to describe the different foods on the list. By the end of the lesson all the writing and talk of succulent roast chicken…terrific soft tuna…cool clear water…phenomenal potatoes…left all of us longing for our lovely lunches! Awesome adjectives!

Jack climbs another beanstalk.

Today in Literacy the children discussed hot places. In groups,they looked at the features of hot arid deserts and discussed what they had in common. They looked at where hot deserts tended to be in the world. They then imagined that Jack had climbed another beanstalk and  they described the hot place he found at the top of the beanstalk. “The desert was as hot as a volcano….hot as boiling lava…hot as an oven…Jack thought he would melt!” Super description!

Developing Inference

Today in Literacy, the children dressed up and worked in small groups to act out key scenes from Cinderella involving more than one character, using pictures as a prompt. As they did this they thought about how the different characters might be feeling. We then hot seated some of the characters before writing about the story events and how the characters felt at these points and why.
