Foundation- Jack and the Beanstalk 25/4/17
Today we have heard the story of ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’. We have started to make our own beanstalks in class. Each leaf has an adjective to describe the beanstalk.
Can an you think of any adjectives to describe the beanstalk? Can you retell the story?
Yesterday in our literacy learning we collaborated together to consider the most effective and interesting adjectives to describe the main characters in the Rama and Sita story.
We were all keen to make our adjectives more spicy and up levelled our describing words to create the best descriptions.
Today, we applied our knowledge of amazing adjectives to form our own descriptive sentences about the story characters. Using our colourful semantic cards, we matched the correct colour card to our sentence words.
In particular, we used the adjective and conjunction cards. Which adjectives did you select to describe Rama or Sita? Explain why you chose them to someone at home.
Which conjunctions did you pick to extend your sentences and include more detail? Were there any other conjunctions you could have picked? How could you find this out?
On Friday, for our Big Write, we will be writing a letter persuading bugs to visit our fantastic Bug Hotel. Today, we thought of powerful adjectives that sell the hotel. We came up with some lovely ones.
This is a great example of a fab piece of Year 1 writing that was completed today. Lots of adjectives used to describe the setting. Great work in preparation for our Big Write next week. How would you improve this work further?
