Fabulous French Word Challenge

Lots of Owls and Larks have told me that they love practising French at home with their families, so I have decided to begin a weekly Word Challenge to discover the meaning of a new French word.

This week we watched Le Gruffalo and listened out for the French nocturnal animals that we had learnt.

Can you find out the French for some of the other animals we saw in the film?  How about squirrel, ants, woodpecker or butterfly?

Comment below or tell me after our week off.

Bonne Chance! ūüėÄ

Next Term

Our topic next term is Hooray let’s go on holiday. ¬†We are looking forward to our trip to Weston Super Mare. Please keep your fingers crossed for good weather. ¬† ¬†Please make sure your child is dress appropriately for the weather and remember that Weston can be chilly even on the hottest day. ¬†If the weather is warm please make sure they have sun screen on before leaving home.

Hopefully we will also be taking a walk to Upton St Leonards Church to experience a country holiday and learn about what can be found inside a Christian church.

Have a lovely holiday.

Sharing Stories

When you are reading at home look for evidence in your story which tells you what season it is set in.  How do you know?  What month of the year might this be? Can you see any clocks in the illustrations or other things which indicate what time it is?

Enjoy reading lots of different books over the holidays!

Poetry Writing

This week we have been reading poems about nocturnal animals. Now we are going to try writing poems of our own. This amazing poem was written by Josh B in Owls:

Little Owl sneaks for

food in the night,

His favourite food is mice.

Little Owl lives

in a tree

As happy as can be.

Little Owl swoops in the sky.

He likes to fly up high.

Wednesday Update

We can’t believe that next week will be the last week this term. ¬†We have been so busy this week learning about nocturnal animals and deciding which animals are carnivores which are herbivorous and which are omnivorous. ¬†We are now looking forward to our seaside trip on the 6th June, which you should have received a letter about. ¬†Please return the slip by Monday so that we can order the amount of lunches we need. ¬†Forest school will continue this week and next. In view of today’s weather please ensure your child comes dress in clothes that can get muddy. There will be no forest school after the holidays.

Sharing Stories

This week we have started to look at poems about nocturnal animals.  Tonight share a poem at home.  What is your poem about? Did it rhyme? What words did the poet use to make the poem interesting?

Sharing Stories

In school we have been reading a story about a little girl called Katie. Tonight when you are sharing stories see if you can imagine going into one of the pictures. Talk about the things you might see, hear and smell. Who might you meet?

Have fun
