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.
This is a preview of the short film we are making about our very exciting adventure to Planet Bobble before half term. Lots of people thought that Reception and Year 1 were just having a sleepover at school but actually we took part in a real adventure …
In Acorn Class , as part of our work on ‘Day and Night’, we have been reading some lovely picture books including ‘The Owl who was afraid of the Dark’ by Jill Murphy and ‘The Night Box’ by Louise Greig .
Following this, the children have produced some superb writing about nightfall. Here are a few examples from Year 1:
Day is yawning. The daisies close. Light melts behind the rooftops and the fox uncurls. Two eyes and two ears and two wings are waiting. I snuggle up with Mum and I drink hot chocolate. Then I open the night box and the night can swallow an ocean. The night slips into my bedroom strong and holding my teddy. Night is kind because it holds me in bed.
Day is yawning. Yellow is sinking behind the house. I have hot milk at bedtime and I watch a programme and I snuggle on the sofa. I open the night box and then dark swirls into the room. Night is big enough to hold an ocean. Night is kind. It covers me like an umbrella. Night is necessary because it lets you dream.
The birds fold their wings . Yellow floats down the houses. Before I go to bed I have my inhaler and we read a story. Dark lands like a soft white feather. A fox uncurls. I open the night box. Dark is mischievous. It chases pink and blue away. Dark stretches up to the stars and it makes them fizz and sparkle and shine.
