To celebrate 'World Book Day' we had the author Tom Willday in to visit. Thank you for all your fabulous designs for a new character for a book! The book was very special as it is made from recycled paper and includes carrot seeds in the paper which you can plant after reading it. If you would like more information , please go to Willsow.com
This week we celebrated Shrove Tuesday. Did you know Ash Wednesday is the start of Lent? Can you see what we did with the ash?
We have been raising money for a local charity (LOROS) with Fitness in Schools.
We read 'The Princess and the Frog'. We discussed what the characters said.
We learnt about non fiction texts.
We looked at models of frogs and tried to make a clay model using the right features.
We have been reading traditional tales. We made baskets using only newspaper and sellotape for little Red Riding Hood. Do you think they could carry fruit? How could we improve them?
We made collages and wrote 'Wanted' posters for the wolf.
We have been learning about 2 D shapes. We looked for familiar shapes all around us and sorted and named them.
A huge well done to all the class who performed 'Hey Ewe' with great style. We all really enjoyed their amazing singing!
We enjoyed dressing up as elves to support Alzheimers.
We have been learning about Queen Victoria. Do you like our portraits?
We invited our class parents and carers in to our class. We enjoyed sharing all our hard work in our books and showing them our displays.
We have been learning about the Great fire of London. First, we sorted the events on a timeline, then we tested materials to find which burn quickly. We have made model houses and we have looked at the diary of Samuel Pepys. We wrote our own diary.
A huge well done to everyone for raising a fantastic £664.36 for Children in Need!
We have been learning about fireworks. Today we collected words that describe how they look and the noises they make. We made some group poems:
We are learning about how Hindus celebrate Diwali. Today we made divas from salt dough. We made patterns by pressing a pencil into them, then once they were cooked, we painted them and added glitter.
We acted out the story of Rama and Sita. Can you spot Ravana or Hanuman?
We can add using parts to make a whole. We used Numicon to find the parts of a whole, then wrote the calculation.
Look at us enjoying our marble treat!
In ICT we are using Purple Mash. We use a mouse to log on and put in our passwords. We then find our set activity.
R.E. We learnt about how different religions show they belong. We learnt that Jewish people celebrate Shabbat on Friday night. We tasted bread and 'wine' . We also visited St. Luke's church to find out a bit more about baptism.
We made purple prickle pancakes for the gruffalo:
We had a bears picnic today in class (because of the rain!) Do you like our biscuits?
