We learnt to use our finger to skimming and scan to find words quickly. What a great start to the week having fun using finger puppets.
Year 5 Reading buddies received some very special gifts from their readers in Acorns class!
Vicky (Year 5) “When I first started Nicole found reading hard but now she doesn’t need as much help.”
Leo (Year 5) “At the start Malvin was less confident and now he loves reading.”
To end our brilliant topic on the Spiderwick chronicles, we made two field guides filled with our fantastical creatures. We used tea bags to age the paper and watercolours to bring our creations to life.
Today we had some visitors from Hemel library to tell us all about the summer reading challenge! This year’s theme is Space and all you have to do to participate is visit any library in Hertfordshire to sign up and get your sticker pack.

Today a group of children acted out the story of ‘Whatever Next’. We had lots of fun and the children remembered all the important events in the story and lots of the dialogue. Well done Pips!
Today we retold the story of the Three Billy Goat’s Gruff using props. We thought you would like to read it.
This week we have been making wanted posters to warn everyone about the Big Bad Wolf. We made necklaces with repeating patterns to cheer Grandma up and made a chocolate cake in the microwave to share at snack time (Grandma did not get any of the cake!).
