This week we have had great fun writing letters to Jack to let him know where we think he should live. We used all of our previous research about villages, towns and cities to let him know our reasons.
Most of us thought that Jack should live in the village of South Wonston because it is a quiet area with lots of houses to choose from. It also has bus stops so he is still able to get into the city.
Also this week, we really enjoyed watching a pantomime. It was the story of The Wizard of Oz. It had a lovely happy ending. Some of us even got to go on stage!

This week in English we have been writing a new ending for the tale of The Town Mouse and The Country Mouse. Miss Fewtrell has enjoyed reading them. She was impressed with our use of adjectives.
Also, we have had fun using The Mighty Writer to create new stories. In Year 2 we wrote about a pretty fairy and beautiful mermaid on an old pirate ship, and Year 1 wrote about a friendly dinosaur and little girl who lived a tree house. We loved using this new piece of equipment!

This week we have been finding out more about Winchester and what it is like there so that we can help Jack choose a place to live. We looked at 'google street view' and many photographs. We noticed there are lots of shops, a cinema, a cathedral and important statues. We are looking forward to our trip around South Wonston tomorrow to see how it compares to the city.

This week we have had great fun learning about instructions.
The Giant from Jack and The Beanstalk left his instructions for 'How to grow a beanstalk' in our classroom!
Did you know that instructions have to be followed carefully, and it is the only time we're allowed to be bossy?
We have also been giving instructions to Jack.
He wanted directions for how to get to places around the village. We used compass directions (North, East, South and West) to help us.

This week we have been very busy in our English and Maths learning.
We have planned and written our own story endings for The Gingerbread Man tale. Miss Fewtrell was impressed with our new ideas.
In Maths we have practised building numbers in different ways and finding which ones are more or less.
Also, we had great fun trying to show Jack what South Wonston is like. We drew maps with our own symbols.

Hello! Welcome to Otters' class page!
We have been having great fun getting to know our class friends and teachers.
Last week we played team games, and started to learn about fairy tales. Did you know that Jack from Jack and The Beanstalk is looking for a new place to live? We are trying to help him decide whether a town or city would be best.
Today we had a great time celebrating Roald Dahl's birthday. He is a famous author who has written lots imaginative stories. We designed our own sweets for Willy Wonka and described them using adjectives. We read about his amazing sweets in the story Charlie and The Chocolate Factory.
