Growing Towards Tomorrow


Instruction Writing

This half term we will be learning to write instructions.  We will use our text map to help us to write instructions on our own. 

We have started with writing instructions for how to make a chocolate witches hat.  We have written the instructions and followed them to create our own chocolate treat. 


Pumpkin Soup

Our class text is Pumpkin Soup. This is a fun book written by Helen Cooper. 

This is how the story goes...

Cat, Duck and Squirrel live in an old white cabin, with a pumpkin patch in the garden. Every day Cat slices up some pumpkin, Squirrel stirs in some water and Duck tips in some salt to make perfect pumpkin soup... until the day Duck wants to do the stirring...
A funny, rhythmical story about friendship and sharing, with fabulous animal characters, illustrated in glowing autumnal colours.

The children will enjoy making a fun text map and learning actions to help them memorise the story.  Also they will be writing their own version of the story in their books.
