In class Hugo, we are beginning to follow Pie Corbett’s - Talk for Writing in our literacy sessions. Our book for the term is - The Magic Porridge Pot.
At the start of the topic, the children were shown a magical porridge pot. They took turns to stir, smell and describe the porridge. Next we recited words from the story to make the porridge grow bigger and bigger. We added sugar (bicarbonate soda) and syrup (vinegar) and just like magic, the porridge bubbled and grew!
Next we made some salt dough bowls for the porridge, before enjoying some messy play with oats!
All of the children showed high levels of enthusiasm! A great start to the topic!
Well done all!
