Last half term, Whales Class worked really hard to develop their own stories which were inspired by ‘Stone Age Boy’. They flipped the idea on it’s head and Om, who is their main character came to North Elmham for a visit! After writing their own versions, using the amazing vocabulary and skills they learnt over the past few weeks, they edited them, typed them up and designed a front cover.
I hope you enjoy reading their wonderful stories!Whales-Class-Independent-Writes-4
We have been so busy in Whales class! We have been learning to compare numbers and developing our subtraction skills. We wrote a class story of the Stone Age Boy and then turned the story on it’s head to write our own versions of the adventure story. In History, we have been learning about the Stone Age and shared some of our learning through ‘A day in the life of Grey Otter’. We used Google Maps to explore more about our local area and discovered more about our towns, city and county. We learnt about body percussion and even had a go at the mambo cup challenge! We love all things outdoors, so as well as our Wellbeing Wednesdays we also took our DT outside, we explored ways to make different structures including a tricky tripod structure. The children have all put in so much effort this half term and even squeezed in some fun in the snow! We wish them all a lovely half-term break!
I hope that you enjoy today’s story!
