Westfield Community School A beacon of hope (Ofsted)

Hello and welcome back to our blog. This week we have been using traditional story texts to help us develop our reading skills. Our first text was The Three Little Pigs. We have done some amazing work this week and this is a little sneak peek!

We just love to read 🙂

We have also been developing our ability to tell stories without the use of a book or props. This is a fantastic achievement and takes a great deal of skill, knowledge and bravery to sit in front of the class and tell a story. We are so proud of every one of our amazingly talented children that we recorded sharing their favourite story 👍

We thought about the story of the The Three Little Pigs and we created our own versions of their houses. It was great. We used our problem solving skills and our writing skills to label the amazing houses we created. Have a look and see if you can find the pig inside of his wonderful new home 🐷
We also have been thinking about rhyming words that could be linked with the story. We used words such as brick, stick, pot and then sorted various words into the correct section if they rhymed. 
We have also been really busy creating a story map. We have been identifying what happens at the beginning, in the middle and the end of the story  and then used our creative skills to map out the story. This work is amazing and we are rightly proud of it
We also loved visiting the book fair. There were so many exciting books to look and share with our friends. We talked about our favourite stories, characters and what made a good book. It was really interesting to listen to our ideas 📚

Next week we will be uisng the text The Gingerbread Man as the focus of our learning. So please come back and visit our blog next week and see evidence of our exciting work. 


We we hope that you have a great weekend
