What good learners do


                                                                       
During writing time it can be difficult recording the sounds we want to use.
We use this chart to help us think about what sounds we can hear at the beginning, middle and end of a word. Once we have written our story, we check we have tried our best by reading our work back with the teacher or a partner.  Then we tick off the steps we used.

Here we are giving it a go!


   




















We also use this process to help us write some more interesting vocabulary in our stories. We call these words
WOW words.
Blake is showing us a poem he wrote using some WOW words. He used his check list to ensure he chose appropriate WOW words to describe his nouns.

Super work K2P!

The King's Cake



'The King's Cake' was our shared story this week in K2B and K2M so we decided to have a cake party! We made 2 delicious chocolate cakes and made and decorated crowns to wear. We pretended we were at the Kings birthday party and sang happy birthday and gave him 46 claps!
Ask your child to retell the story for you. Ask them what happened to the King's cake in the story... luckily ours had a happier ending!
