Red Squirrels Blog 6.10.17

This week in Maths we have been learning about multiplying. We started by using equipment to help us, we then learnt how to use arrays. We have to remember to make sure our dots are in straight lines. We also made arrays during outdoor learning using stones, sticks, leaves and pinecones.

In English we have started to plan our own version of Little Red Riding Hood. We have used our boxing up method and an S plan. We have changed the main character, the stetting, who the character is visiting, what is put into the basket and who is the hero at the end of the story.

In challenge time we have been making wolf mask using card, tissue paper, crepe paper and felt. They look fantastic up on our window!

In Topic lessons this week we have been learning about different puppets for example finger puppets, hand puppets and string puppets. We learnt how each one is used and the skills you might need to make them move.

We then made our own spoon puppets. We made Red Riding Hood, Granny and the Wolf. In groups we then performed the story of Little Red Riding Hood using our spoon puppets it was so much fun!
