Today we looked at the next page of our story (we still don't know what it's called but we'd like to keep it this way!).
The sentence was 'Every day Noi's Dad left early for a long day's work on his fishing boat.'
We also looked at the illustration of Noi looking out the window watching his Dad go.
The children worked in pairs in role as Noi and his Dad. They thought about the facial expressions and thoughts that these characters might have been feeling (making inferences). We then wrote a thought bubble showing our ideas.
From this the children sketched their own representation of what this looked like to them.
They then added any interesting vocabulary which gave their picture meaning.
We compared our pictures and asked each other questions about our choices.

This week we went outside and measured the length of different sharks on the playground.
We used metre sticks and chalk to measure whale sharks (12m), great white sharks (5m) and angel sharks (3m) among others!
Some children challenged themselves to measure in metres and centimetres. Some even converted measurements.
