Week 4, 25th - 29th January
Welcome back to another week of traditional tales learning! This week we are going to continue with our three little pigs story.
Happy Monday! Today, it is time for something new. We are going to be creating our own version of the three little pigs story! See Miss Earl's video below for more explanation, and then choose either Challenge 1 or Challenge 2, depending on how confident you feel!
I hope you enjoyed the chance to plan your own Three Little Pigs story! Today, you will begin to write it, using the special paper below. See if you can write the first few sentences, so that you have included your first change - what you have chosen instead of little pigs! See below for Miss Earl's example.
Today you will continue writing your 3 Little Pigs story! Watch Miss Earl's video below, and try to write 2 or 3 more sentences or finish it if you can.
Hopefully, you have had a chance to finish your story now! If not, you at least have a few sentences done or you could use this day to finish off if you like. If you've finished, have a go at todays editing activity! Watch the video below for more ideas.
Well done, you've made it to Friday! Congratulations for all your hard work. Today, instead of writing, I would love you to have a go at retelling your 3 little pigs story. How is up to you! You could draw it, you could act it, you could make your own puppets or masks, you could build it out of lego, using soft toys, or even make it out of cake! Have a think about how you could show or tell your story, and then send Miss Earl or Miss Cushnie a picture - we can't wait to see what you decide to do!
Week 3, 18th - 22nd January
This week, we are starting a brand new traditional tale -The Three Little Pigs! Hopefully lots of you already know this story and will be confident writing about it. Be careful though, like with lots of traditional tales this version may be slightly different to the one you know. Have fun!
Just like with Little Red Riding Hood, first of all we are going to learn the story really well and learn the actions for it - this will help us to write about it really well! Use Miss Earl's video and powerpoint for some ideas, or read through the story with a grown up. Impress someone in your house with your amazing actions and how much of the story you have remembered!
Now that you know the story and the actions to match, sequencing it should be easy! Use the pictures and the sheet to cut and stick the story in the right order. Watch Miss Earl's video for ideas!
Lets use our knowledge of The Three Little Pigs to draw our own story map. Follow Miss Earl's video for instructions and use the sheet below if you would like to - otherwise you can use any plain paper!
We are going to use last week's learning about adjectives to help us add some information to our story maps. Watch the video below for more information, and have a look at Miss Earl's finished story map for an example!
By now you know the story so well, have a go at thinking up a couple of your own sentences to match the boxes and pictures on this sheet. It is Friday, so if you only manage 1 or 2 boxes that is absolutely fine! Try to remember your capital letters and full stops, and use the word mat below to help you with some of the tricky words.
