This week, we have been looking at the storybook ‘Where the Wild Things Are’. We discovered a lot about the book and the different types of characters in it. The main character was called Max so we wrote a character description about him! Next, we designed our own Wild Thing and described them; we included similes in our descriptions as we learned about them early in the week.
We discussed the book in great detail during one of our lessons this week and the children were able to use their inference skills in order to predict what might happen next or what could be an alternate scenario throughout different stages of the book. We also created our own front cover as to what we thought was either the most important part of the story or what stood out to us the most. Take a look at some of them!
We have had an Art Day this week where we made lots of different African inspired creations since our topic this term has been all about Kenya. We have made African masks, African neck collars and African sunset cards with an animal silhouette in the foreground.
Position and direction
In maths this week, we have been learning all about position and direction. The children have used terminology that they are familiar with and built on this using ‘north’ for upwards and ‘South East’ for diagonal. They used this knowledge to instruct their partner on how to reach the treasure on a treasure map!
