Book Making

Posted by ellidgeclg | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on May 24, 2017

We have all written a narrative inspired by Jeannie Baker’s stories. Part of the process has been to illustrate our book using collage rather than drawing. JK commented on how much harder it is to make a collage than just draw a picture.

Here are some photos to show our work…..

The children have put a huge amount of effort into writing a narrative as well as attempting collage illustrations.

Thanks to those who have sent in photos already. For those who haven’t …… we need a baby photo and a recent photo of one grandparent. If you don’t have grandparent photos, photos of a parent will do.

Jolly Grammar – This week we looked at words with the ..ck sound at the end of them, if they contain a short vowel sound. We also looked at initial blends in words eg bl, st, gr.

Maths – We have been looking at efficient ways of counting. Encourage your child to skip count collections of things at home by 10s, 5s and 2s. We had fun popping corn and counting it in the quickest way.

Narrative writing – This week we had our first go at making up our own story, using our imaginations. Over the next week we are entering a book making competition using our narrative writing and collage skills.

Sharing – We learned lots about the amazing mums in room13.

Next week is going to be very busy and out of routine!!

  • Nature Play every morning 8:50-9:30. Boots and raincoats weather appropriate.
  • Assembly rehearsals and Assembly 11:15 Friday
  • No sight word testing, hearing reading or Jolly Grammar.
  • Creating our books to enter the competition.

Jolly Grammar – We looked at …ss and …zz in words that have a short vowels sound. We learned about pronouns too.

Maths- We are becoming more confident with Rainbow Facts. We made a R.F. poster and will be bringing them home soon. Please hang up somewhere to help your child become familiar with R.F.s.

Writing – This week we read books about mums, wrote about our mums and then typed up our writing into Word.

Inquiry this term, with Simone and the year 1 classes, has a focus on Geography (place – constructed, natural and managed), History (then and now) and Science ( animal features and habitat). We are also including Jeannie Baker books into our Inquiry topic.

Collage will be a major element of this term. So we are asking for donations of ‘off cuts’ of fabric, material, hessian, lace, ribbons, felt, leather, wool. Also things like wrapping paper, coloured card, twine, string, buttons…….. Be creative……anything you can think might be useful!

Parent homework – Photos of a grandparent as a baby and more recently are needed asap for a History activity. Copies for us to cut and glue please.

Sharing – week 3 is something about your mum. Please help your child prepare an interesting talk that goes for a couple of minutes.

We hope that all of our mums from room 13 get spoilt on Sunday!!

Your child requires copies of two photos for some collage work, looking at the past and now.  The focus is grandparents as a child and now…… If that isn’t possible then a parent will be ok.

We will be glueing photos onto a collage, so please send along copies of original photos. One photo as a child from the past and one of now/more recent times.

We need these photos asasp……..ideally for Monday.
