Literacy

P3/4 have been creating story maps of some Irish myths and legends as part of their new writing topic, narrative writing.

Good weather means we take our spellings outside!

P3/4 have been learning how to recognise and use pronouns in the Rainbow Garden.

We went on a noun hunt in our classroom! After we found all the nouns we had to throw a ball into the correct basket to show how to make it a plural noun!

P3/4 worked in groups to create story maps with actions to retell the story of George’s Marvellous Medicine! They had great fun extending their vocabulary and knowledge of story structure.

P3/4 combined hurling and verbs! They competed in teams to race to convert verbs into present tense!

P3/4 have been playing different games including taking part in Kung Fu puntuation battles to practice using full stops, exclamation marks and question marks!

P3/4 made delicious Top Hats this week! They then worked collaboratively to write a set of instructions which included bossy verbs and fabulous time connectives!

P3/4 made beautiful rainbow clouds with fabulous adjectives that describe them. They have been learning how to use adjectives to 'up-level' their sentences to make their writing even more exciting!

P3/4 have been practising using adjectives this week and decided to take their learning outside. They developed their throwing skills by throwing beanbags to uncover nouns and then selected adjectives to match them. They also worked with learning partners to uplevel sentences with exciting adjectives and rewrote them with chalk on the playground.

P3/4 have been listening to a Scottish folk story called 'The Selkie of Sanday.' They have been learning to sequence the main parts of the story through story mapping and drama. They created this iMovie of 'The Selkie of Sanday' to show their learning.

P3/4 first writing genre is instruction writing. As an introduction P3/4 had to give instructions to Miss Wilson to help her make jam sandwiches. At the start the instructions did not go well at all, but in the end they figured it out! They were then able to put together a success criteria of what good instructions need.
