Dress as a word day

Early Years

The children in Nursery  all enjoyed showing off their "dress as a word" costumes.  The children also enjoyed making book marks during the afternoon. The children enjoyed hearing some of our 'big books', they really enjoyed 'Owl babies and What a mess!'

The children in Reception all enjoyed showing off their "dress as a word" costumes. The children enjoyed time to read and play reading games during phonics. The children also enjoyed making book marks during the afternoon. We also shared some of our favourite stories as a class including "We're Going on a Bear Hunt" and "Little Red Riding Hood". 

Reception - Our favourite books from home! We have enjoyed sharing our reading challenge from home. 

KS1

Year 1

As well as dressing as a different word each, Year 1 have:

Enjoyed their daily guided reading session, focusing on word robbers. The children have been introduced to a dictionary and have learnt how to use it to find the meaning of the words.  During their sequencing activity, they have focused on the story 'Cinderella' and have used their story telling skills to retell the story. In shared reading, they have  listened to the non-fiction book 'Busy Bees' and have shown a great understanding of the features of non-fiction books.

As a class we completed a vocabulary challenge which involved using a variety of different words to describe an image.

Each day, we have covered a few chapters of 'Fantastic Mr Fox' linking to our topic 'The Enchanted Woodland'. They have been encouraged to make predictions based on what has been read so far and cannot wait to find out what happens next.

The children also joined with Year 2 and enjoyed some buddy reading. The children read with each other and were encouraged to use their phonics knowledge and skills to support their friends with reading.

 

Year 2

As well as dressing as a different word each, Year 2 have:

Enjoyed their daily guided reading session, focusing on vocabulary. The children have been looking at George’s Marvellous Medicine and finding out the definitions for words such as ‘dozing’ and ‘marvellous'. They have been encouraged to use the text to support their answers.
The children completed a vocabulary challenge where they had to find adjectives within a text and find words that mean the same as the chosen word.
The children also joined with Year 1 and enjoyed some buddy reading. The children read with each other and were encouraged to use their phonics knowledge and skills to support their friends with reading.

This week the children will also be reminded how to use a dictionary and how it can support their learning.

LKS2

In Year 3, we enjoyed a day dressed as an word with the rest of the school. We had some fantastic ideas: helpful, fearless, cool, protective, messy, odd, sporty and colourful.

 In the run up to this day, Year 3 have learnt how to use a dictionary and a thesaurus. During this day, the children found their word in a dictionary to write the exact meaning, found synonyms in a thesaurus and drew their word. During English, they also added statutory words to their newspaper report. 

In Year 4, we enjoyed a day dressed as an word with the rest of the school. We had some fantastic ideas: helpful, smart, mysterious, sleepy, messy, active, sporty and slow.

 As part of our daily activity, Year 4 have improved our dictionary and thesaurus skills. The children found their word in a dictionary to write the exact meaning, found synonyms in a thesaurus and drew their word. During English, they also added -ly and -ous words to their music leaflets.

UKS2

Year 5

In Year 5, we enjoyed a day dressed as an adjective with the rest of the school. We had some very creative responses: friendly, victorious, healthy, sassy, proud and slumberous among just a few.  During the day, we also enjoyed taking part in some vocabulary activities linked to our spellings this week - using a dictionary to find the meaning of words and a thesaurus to find synonyms. 

We also set ourselves a challenge of creating a dictionary with our words. We sorted ourselves into alphabetical order and said our words together - see our video below. 

Year 6:

The children in Year 6 enjoyed being able to dress as a word, and we saw words like: sporty, horsey, comfortable, relaxed, drowsy, sparkly, lazy, sleepy and camouflage. 

As well as dressing as a different word each, Year 6 have: 
  • Enjoyed a longer guided reading session, focusing on vocabulary, with more questions to answer around their non-fiction text - The Earthship. 
  • Completed a 'dictionary dilemma' where children were given the letters of a word, scrambled up, along with the definition of the word. The children had to unscramble the vocabulary. 
  • Completed a 'dictionary scavenger hunt' where children had to answer different questions, and complete different challenges, all with the help of a dictionary, such as: find a word with no vowels and see how many words begin with the letter 'x'.
