In class, we are currently reading a book called Wolven. I enjoy it when the teachers read to us, especially when they do the funny voices for the characters when they are speaking. It gets me on the edge of my seat and actually helps me a lot during English as I pull words out of it and model it into my writing.
In English, we are writing our own version of a story called A Vampires Revenge. I love writing stories, especially adventure ones. In fact, I am writing one at home to make use of all the wonderful vocabulary I have learned, which also helps me improve my handwriting.
In maths, we have been looking at angles. We have been looking at acute, obtuse and reflex angles. We needed a protractor to find out the answers.
I am really looking forward to science this half term, because it's really interesting to find out different facts about Evolution.
This week, we have been focusing on the text ‘Escape from Pompeii’. As a class, 3RM have really enjoyed learning about Mount Vesuvius and the eruption which buried the city underground. Following this, we planned a newspaper report to recount the events, including the facts which we have learnt during our English lessons. Miss. Mills is incredibly proud of our handwriting at the moment.
In Music this week we have been exploring instruments. In pairs, we composed our own rhythms and recorded these in 4 beat bars using crotchet, quavers and rests.
Finally, on Friday it was St. George’s day. We learnt about the significance of this day and why it is celebrated across the United Kingdom.
Year 1 have been busy learning about primary and secondary colours. They have thoroughly enjoyed mixing different primary colour paints together to make secondary colours. They also experimented with adding more or less of one colour to see the different tones the paints make.
In History, Year 4 have been designing Canopic Jars. These are soon going to be made into a 3D model in a DT lesson and we can’t wait to see the final outcomes!
Year 3 have recently completed Mola art printing using tiles they designed themselves. They look amazing!
