Dolphins love the story of Harvey Slumfenburger!

Posted: 3 December 2019

Dolphin class have been looking at the story of Harvey Slumfenburger’s Christmas present. He is a little boy who lives at the top of the Roly Poly mountain, which is far, far away. We have been learning about nouns (names of things), proper nouns (name of a person, place, street, days, months, and has a capital letter), adjectives (describing words), verbs (actions) and adverbs (describes the action, usually ends in ‘-ly’ suffix). We looked for nouns, verbs and adjectives in the story. We then created our own word bank of adjectives to help us with our writing. We’ve produced some beautiful work and hope you like it.

We played some games to get better at nouns and adjectives, here are some of them.

We also enjoyed playing the ‘adjective detective’ game.

Dolphin class has been looking at all the coins. We can use our place value skills to count up a selection of coins and to then get out the correct amount to pay for our ‘shopping’. Here are some games we have enjoyed playing.

If you’re up for a challenge, this website makes us add up amounts and give change: https://mathsframe.co.uk/en/resources/resource/44/solve_2_step_money_problems_

We sorted coins here:
