This week, we have been reading the story of Jack and the Beanstalk. We have loved reading different versions of the story, discussing their similarities and differences and retelling the story through role play and writing. We made a story mountain with pictures to help us retell the story with a friend – you were very kind about my drawings!
Yesterday, we had our first Independent Write, where we had to write the story by ourselves, remembering to add in full stops, capital letters, finger spaces and detail. I have been so impressed reading your stories. You have used some impressive vocabulary, presented your writing neatly and worked hard to apply your spelling of High Frequency Words into your sentences.
Here are some examples of the fantastic standard of writing so early on in Year 1!
I am really looking forward to sharing your hard work with your families next week at Parents Evening. You should all be so proud of yourselves!
Well done Matilda class 🙂
