In Literacy, we have been writing stories.
We have been thinking of ways to make our writing really interesting for the reader.
One way to do this is to vary the way we begin our sentences using fronted adverbials. In pairs, we came up with some brilliant ones to use in our stories.
Can you think of any more fronted adverbials that we could use in our writing tomorrow?
The children have been excited to see who takes the rabbit home each day.

First we acted out the story and tried some delicious fruits.
Then, we made our own story theatres to tell the story.Today we used the iPads to film each other telling the story! Then we watched them back.
Can you use your theatre to tell someone the story at home?
We have been reading the Story Handa’s Surprise and learning it off my heart. Watch our performance! How many people can you tell the story to?
In Literacy, we have been learning about contracted words. These are words which have been made up of two words. There is always an apostrophe and some letters are removed.
We found lots of contracted words which we use very frequently:
- There is > there’s
- we are > we’re
- did not > didn’t
- I will > I’ll
- I am > I’m
- could have > could’ve
Challenge: Can you find any more contracted words?
