This week we have began learning more about adjectives. On Monday we shared a big book called “Room on the Broom” where we investigated how the author (Julia Donaldson) used adjectives in the storyline to add more detail to the story and characters. We then completed our literacy rotation where we included adjectives in our imaginative potions and in describing the characters in the story.
Today we continued our adjectives work by watching an animation of “Room on the Broom” and searching for the adjectives in the story.
To end the day we had so much fun by exploring adjectives in our play investigations. Mrs G invited us to participate in some amazing activities where we had opportunities to use adjectives to describe what we could see, feel, taste and smell.
We all had so much fun and can’t wait to do another one of the activities tomorrow!
Tasting and recording adjectives to describe the taste of foods
Making our own perfume and describing the smell
Making potions and using adjectives to describe them

Next Tuesday the 25th February is Shrove Tuesday. To help us learn more about Shrove Tuesday today we explored some facts around the significance of the day and engaged in some play investigations around Shrove Tuesday. We discussed that Shrove Tuesday is also known as Pancake Day and is the last day before Lent begins. Lent is the Christian period leading up to Easter, when people often give up something. In the past people were not allowed to eat foods such as eggs, so to use them before Lent began, people would mix them with other rich foods such as milk, flour and butter to make pancakes.
We engaged in activities around Shrove Tuesday such as making pancakes with Play-Doh, writing acrostic poems about pancakes, using Inspire to create a “Pancake Recipe” Wordsearch, writing pancake procedures, making pancakes out of paper and creating iMovies with information about Shrove Tuesday. Have a look at our photos where had a great time using our creativity and exploring new facts. Our investigative learning from today will be greatly beneficial for next Tuesday when we share pancakes together at school….yum!
