English

This half term we have based our English work on the story 'Into the Forest' by Anthony Browne. The story is about a little boy who is asked to take some food to his grandma's house which is in the forest. On his way he meets lots of familiar characters...a boy selling his cow, a girl with golden hair, a boy and a girl hiding behind a tree surrounded by breadcrumbs...

 

After retelling the story, we based the rest of our English work on the characters the boy meets throughout the book.  We wrote character descriptions on Little Red Riding Hood and Jack from Jack and the Beanstalk.  

We then carried out some instruction writing based on planting beans and porridge making. 

Porridge making

We then looked at letter writing and used the book 'The Jolly Postman' by Janet and Allan Ahlberg for our lessons. Here, the postman delivers letters to and from different traditional tale characters.
