Today something exciting happened. Emmeline and Helen were digging the the garden and they discovered that some potatoes had grown!
We spoke about what we could make with the potatoes and some children said chips.
Then we carefully chopped the potatoes into smaller pieces. It was very tricky.
While we waited for the chips to cook, we wrote some signs to tell people to come to our chip shop!
Hooray the chips are ready! We shared them with our friends. They were delicious.
Today, we visited the school library. We will now be visiting every Wednesday. We enjoyed reading lots of different kinds of books.
This is what some of us thought about our time in the library today…
“It was very relaxing” Julie-Grace
“It was very peaceful” Sam
“I liked the Where’s Wally books” Lorenzo
“I read our Penguin book in the library” Mason
The children initiated a game of pizza making with the play dough. We decided to make some real pizzas that we could eat!
Together we thought of some toppings that we might like on our pizza. We wrote lists and made pizzas in our creative area.
We carefully spread tomato puree with a knife and chopped some vegetables. Next we grated and sprinkled on some cheese.
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?
