Year 1

Today we participated in lots of different reading activities. 


In English we focused on the author Julia Donaldson and created a mini library of some of her most famous books. 



In reading we focused on performance poetry. We listened to Micheal Rosen perform The Rhythm of life. We then practiced his poem and performed it. We hope you enjoy watching our performances.

In curriculum we focused on famous illustrators. Our illustrator was Axel Scheffler. He has illustrated lots of Julia Donaldson stories. We each had a text and tried to recreate his images in his own unique style.

Here are our illustrations from today.



Miss Douglas - Room on the Broom.


Miss Teale - Stickman


Miss Calcott - A squash and a squeeze.



We also had allocated times to go into the Library again. We were able to explore and look at a variety of different books and choose one to take home so we can share our love of reading with our family and friends.
