Year 1's Tiger That Came to Tea Day!

Our author focus this term has been Judith Kerr and to celebrate her amazing contribution children’s literature Year 1 held a tiger that came to tea day!


In Literacy this half term we have been focussing on instruction writing. We began the unit by following our instruction model text to create our very own tiger masks for the special day. Moving further into the term the children learnt all there is to know about instruction writing before innovating their own instruction text on baking fairy cakes, something tigers really enjoy eating! For their hot write the children wrote instructions for making jam sandwiches, just like the tiger ate in the story!


On the day, the children all dressed up as fearsome, but friendly tigers and spent the morning following their instruction text to make their own delicious fairy cakes and jam sandwiches! Some children even made their cakes all by themselves! Talk about writing for purpose! In the afternoon we held a tiger tea party where they ate their yummy cakes and watched the Tiger that came to tea short film. We all had such great fun!
