This week began with with a growl when the Big Bad Wolf visited the class! Thankfully nobody was gobbled up (even though he said we looked delicious – yikes!) and then he ran off so he wouldn’t be captured because he didn’t want anything like burning his bottom in a pot of boiling water to happen to him again! 

Can you retell the story of The Three Little Pigs?

Which house was built first? Next? Last?

Why couldn’t the Big Bad Wolf blow the brick house down? 

If you were writing your own story about the Big Bad Wolf or the Three Little Pigs what would happen in it? What would you change from the version of the story we know? 

In maths we have been learning to take away (subtract). Can you complete the number sentences below? 

2 – 1 =

4 – 1 =

6 – 2 =

10 – 3 = 

We were very lucky to have a visit from author and illustrator Petr Horacek on Friday. We had a wonderful time watching him draw some of his characters and tell us about his stories and his writing. here are some more of his stories to enjoy: 

It will be Red Team‘s turn for Show and Tell on Tuesday. Please only bring in toys when it is your colour team’s turn for Show and Tell as they can easily get lost 😦 If you are in Blue Team and didn’t get a chance to do Show and Tell last week then you will have your turn this week too. 

Homework is due in on Mondays

Please wear your PE kit on Monday and make sure all your belongings (school uniform, PE kit, book bag etc.) have your name in/on them. 

Thank you so much to all the adults who joined us for our Rights Respecting Open Morning on Wednesday, we hope you enjoyed yourselves 🙂
