In English: 

This week, we received a letter from Mrs Powrie, telling us that she’d lost her teddy bear, Henry. She also said that he was last seen in the wildlife garden! So off we went to look for him.  Luckily, after reading lots of clues along the way, we found Henry reading a book called: Where’s my Teddy? in the library. Needless to say, Mrs Powrie was so pleased to see him. Back in class, we read to the children the book: Where’s my Teddy? and sequenced the story. We also wrote the beginning of the story. In our Letters and Sounds lessons; we have been revising our phase 3 sounds. Next week, we will be using text maps to write about the middle and the end of the story and in our Letters and Sounds lessons; we will be continuing to revise our phase 3 sounds.
