Today, we used freeze framing to help us develop our inference skills. We used freeze framing to help generate ideas about what Mary Anning would think and feel at different point in the story.
We will use these ideas to help us with our writing.
Welcome to Class 7!!
Hello and welcome!!
We've had a very exciting first day back...All children have responded positively and purposefully to the beginning of their next stage into Key Stage 2. We've had a busy day getting to know each other and learning new routines and expectations.
Just a reminder that children will need to attend school on a Monday and Thursday dressed in their PE kits. This should include a suitable polo t-shirt and suitable footwear for completing outdoor sporting activities. In colder months, suitable jogging trousers/jumpers are also permitted. (Please see the uniform section of our website for further guidance.)
In English, this half-term we will be studying a variety of texts. To begin with, we will learn about what fossils are, where they come from and why we need them. We will use The Street Beneath My Feet to help us do this. Next, comes our learning about Mary Anning, an important figure in British fossil hunting. We will use these books to help us learn about her story, personality and findings. We will then use our newly acquired knowledge to help us write cohesive sentences in a first person diary format.
Linked to this; for our topic we will begin investigating the very beginning of history, The Stone Age. We will be looking back at the way that they lived and how their lifestyle impacted upon the way we live our lives today.
Hold tight and we will be posting regular updates about what we get up to in class!
