The Monkeys class started the week by getting to know each other, whilst practising their speaking skills. In groups, they played a ‘Getting to know you’ board game and had to answer different questions about themselves along the way!
On Wednesday, the Monkeys were talking and writing about themselves using adjectives to describe their appearance and that of family members. They also attempted to draw the other side of a photo of their own face, in order to help them with their descriptions!
We have also been looking at word classes and the Monkeys have been sorting words, to identify the nouns, verbs and adjectives. This was a paired activity, which meant the children had to work together and communicate in English.
Today we have been working on the topic of houses and where we live. The Monkeys have labelled the rooms in a typical house and written about objects in each room, using sentences that begin with ‘there is or there are’. They also answered questions in a listening exercise on the topic of houses.
We also read the story of ‘The Three Little Pigs’ and the children worked in small groups to retell the story using a story map and then present it orally to the class.
