P2 watched authors live “Cakes in Space” a story about killer cakes in space that have mutated over hundreds of years and are floating around in zero gravity. The children listened to an extract from the story and listened to the authors and illustrators answering questions. The illustrator then led a drawing tutorial on how to draw the robot a character in the story.
Continuing with the space theme we looked at one of our gift book bags called “Rocket Mole” .The class joined in the reading as much as possible, predicting what might happen next in each part of the story. They then recreated the front cover of the book.
We watched a clip on zero gravity and then the children worked in pairs to complete a science activity on the force of gravity.
We have completed ERIC ( enjoy reading in class) each day as usual completing the First minister’s reading passport and listening to audio stories.
Linking to our ability/ equalities programme we have been reading books on autism.
Mrs Gordon also read us “the very hungry caterpillar “in French.
The children created Character selfies and took part in a book scavenger hunt where they had to find objects or places in different books teaching them how to find information. They had wee blethers about their favourite books and characters too.
During Free writing Friday the children will be using their story cubes from their “Read, write and count” gift bags to write a story.
