The Rainbow Fish

As part of our water topic this term we have been reading the story 'The Rainbow Fish' by Marcus Pfister. Every day we re-tell the story using our class story map and the actions the children created for keywords in the story. We have all had a go at acting out the story and pretending to be different characters.

We even got the opportunity to look closely at a real fish. We were able to see its scales, its fin, its tail and the tiny teeth inside its mouth. 

This week the children have been writing the story of The Rainbow Fish. They thought about what happened first, next and finally and wrote this in their own words. The children have worked hard on using their phonics to segment the words they wanted to write and remembered to use their cursive handwriting. 

In Reception, we are story writers.
