Frogs, Tuesday and Impressive Gymnastics

Over the last two weeks, we have been using the picture book Tuesday as inspiration for our English lessons.  Tuesday is about a group of frogs that one evening, take off on their lily pads and fly around a town!  We started by gathering evidence and sequencing the story, then we investigated a newspaper article about the mysterious flying frogs and practised how to punctuate direct speech. We really enjoyed our lesson where we took turns in the ‘hot seat’ and pretended to be certain characters from the book while our class fired questions at us.  This enabled us to develop ideas for our newspaper article.  Our series of lessons will culminate in us writing a full newspaper article about the flying frogs and we may even try acting out certain scenes from the book!

In this photo, can you spot one of the lily pads we had to follow?

Tuesday investigating

We really enjoyed our gymnastics this week. We had to work with our partners to create some tricky balancing positions. After a lot of resilience (we had to try and try again!), we were successful with our attempts. We were incredibly proud of our achievements and progress.
