Welcome back! This week, we have begun a new topic and we have planned an exciting WOW day for next week! As part of our enquiry learning, we have explored the outbreak of war and looked at the countries that were allies to Great Britain and those that were axis. In English, we have been reading 'The Lion and the Unicorn'. We have written setting descriptions, a letter and predicted what will happen next as part of our Book Power Hour!
On Monday, we had our WOW day! We dressed up as World War 2 evacuees and took part in a range of exciting activities including making identity cards and gas mask boxes, baking honey cakes and experienced what it would be like when the air raid siren sounded in school.
It is anti-bullying week, so we have written some anti-bullying poems! We have also created Blitz skyline pictures using paint and black card.
This week, we have been doing lots of activities linked to the book, 'Only One You'. We have designed and painted pebbles inspired by the book, written autobiographies, written recipes for a good friend and worked in teams to complete maths challenges!
What a fantastic two weeks we have had in our new class. This week we have been learning about place value in Maths and setting descriptions in English. We have also had a great time at forest school this week, making pictures out of leaves to make it look like the forest. We also went swimming at Hutton Moor which was such good fun.
For maths this week we have been rounding numbers to 100,000. In English we have been writing descriptions about a North American setting and for P.E. we have been playing tag rugby.
Wow! What a fantastic Big Day Out we have had today! We built sand sculptures, did some sports,in a round robin, and watched the balloon man. The balloon man was amazing, he made some one into a bee with balloons and even climbed inside a great big balloon.
In English this week, we have been looking at a Native American story about Clever Coyote. We have done some drama to help us re write the ending of the story. We have been doing subtraction in maths using a number line and designing our own Totem Poles in art.
