These are our paper loop penguins. 1C made these as a fine motor activity while we were studying the Arctic environment.
The children are very proud of their work, and for the parents who helped in class that week, they know that this task was much harder than one might think!
In literacy, have been exploring and creating Similes.
We use Similes when we are comparing two things, using the words “like” or “as”. For example: “She was as busy as a bee” and “Last night I slept like a log” are both similes.
Click on the link below to watch a presentation that Mr Tyndall made about Similes! There is also a song at the end (which can only be viewed at home).
Your task: In the comments below, write a simile about yourself. For example:
I am as funny as ________.
I am strong like ________.
In Topic Investigation, we have been exploring Fractured Fairytales.
A fractured fairy tale is a story that uses fairy tales you know and then changes the characters, the setting, points of view, or plots. Sometimes they just change the ending.
Click here to watch the fractured fairytale of ‘Little Red Riding Hood’.
Once you’ve watched it, write some of the things that are different about this fractured fairytale compared to the original version, in the comments below.
