We have been practising using our capital letters and question marks. 

We have created expanded noun phrases using adjectives in front of nouns e.g.big, bouncy, blue ball. 
When doing this, we are trying to use commas between the adjectives. 

 

We have also been learning about prefixes and suffixes and have had fun dancing and singing our song.

We have been retelling parts of the Legend of the Golden Snail story using time connectives and conjunctions. 

We have learnt about feelings and discussed how characters could be feeling based on what is happening in the story. We are trying  to use some WOW words. Instead of Wilbur feeling sad, he could be depressed or glum. We are using the events of the story to make predictions about what will happen next. 

We have been practising skimming and scanning to find words. This helps us when we are doing reading comprehensions. 

We have been practising identifying nouns, adjectives and verbs.
