Book Week in Acorn Class
This week, with World Book Day on Thursday, we have been enjoying all sorts of different books. On Monday we looked at a non fiction book called ‘Playtime activities’ and we followed instructions to draw a giraffe.
On Tuesday we looked at a recipe book and watched Mrs Shiels following the recipe to make pancakes. We sampled these pancakes and then we sequenced our own instructions for making pancakes. After this we enjoyed some pancake races with children from playgroup, and of course, we ate some pancakes together!
On Wednesday we read the book ‘ We’re going on a Bear Hunt’ and we really did go on a Bear Hunt at forest school , following clues which took us from school, through the orchard to the bear’s Pampas grass den.
On Thursday we each brought a favourite non fiction text into school . We shared facts that we found in our books and each made an ‘Ask me about ….’ badge to wear around school . Lots of us were asked questions about our books!
Today we met up again with our friends from Ashton Playgroup at our Parent and Toddler World Book Day event. We listened to stories together and shared lots of different activities . We all helped the younger children to enjoy the different activities on offer , each linked to a favourite story book – ‘Aliens Love Underpants’, ‘What the Ladybird Heard’ and ‘The Tiger who came to Tea’.
Today we have been sharing books with our older reading buddies in our House groups and some of us have also been along to the Reading Café to share books at lunch time this week.
