Our twelve days of Christmas

In English this week we have been re-writing our own version of the 12 days of Christmas, in particular looking at alliteration and syllables inside of our texts. We started the week by learning the 12 days of Christmas song, finding out how many syllables are in each line and what alliteration we could see. We then brainstormed the different alliteration sentences we could change. The children then wrote their own version of the song. They were all fantastic and very Christmassy!

For example:

My Twelve days of Christmas by Lily Sulaiman

On the twelfth day of Christmas my true love gave to me;

12 stinky sprouts,

11 Christmas jumpers,

10 stars are glowing,

9 reindeers flying,

8 Figgie puddings,

7 Santa’s sledging,

6 snowflakes shining,

5 turkey dinners,

4 snowmen singing,

3 lovely hugs,

2 turkeys dancing,

And a star in a Christmas tree!  

We all had a lot of fun writing them and there will be a surprise in store in your Christmas cards they took home today!

In Maths, we have started our topic of angles (not angels!). We started the week by looking at acute, obtuse and right angles. First, identifying their meaning, where they were around the classroom and then moving onto word problems and worksheets. After the Christmas holidays, we will continue with this topic.
