“We had fun at school today” said Edward.
We have been busy decorating Easter boxes, and then decorated biscuits to go in them, yum, yum.
We have been learning about the Easter Bilby, as they don’t have the Easter Bunny in Australia. We listened to some of the story of Burra Nimu, the Easter Bilby by Jeni Bright. We designed our own Australian Easter eggs.
Happy Easter to everyone, enjoy your holiday.
Here is a sneak preview of our documentaries ! We did really well.
Next week we will be filming for a class documentary about Australian animals. We are researching this week and preparing notes and facts. We started off in the library finding out how libraries work and about contents pages and index. We watched a little clip from David Attenborough to see how the expert does it !
We will spend the rest of this week finding facts for our documentary from books and the internet but children can also do more research at home or public libraries.
We have been very busy again this week. We read the story Wombat goes Walkabout by Michael Morpurgo and then have been writing our own Wombat stories trying to remember capital letters, full stops, finger spaces and to use adjectives!
We have been adding using number lines and then solving word problems using number lines. Today we enjoyed a mufti day and Maple Class assembly.
Today we met Matti Hemmings and he showed us some super cool BMX tricks. We had the chance to ask him questions too and have a go on his bike. Lots of us were very brave to try a trick.
Don’t forget to bring in your bikes or scooters for our Sports Relief challenge on the 18th March.
On Friday we had a fantastic end to book week with a real poet in school for the day. Bernie Howley began the day by working with the whole school, on the theme of teeth. During the day each class had a turn with Bernie working on performing poetry and in our session with Oak class we thought about the qualities needed by a tooth fairy. We came up with a long, imaginative list including having waterproof wings, extra special vision and being good carrot gardeners (to grow the carrots to help with the tooth fairy’s night vision). We have lots of ideas of how to start to write a poem ourselves now, thanks to Bernie.
In the school meeting at the end of the day the whole school performed different parts of the poem “My tooth is loose”. After winning our class competition Sophie gave her poetry recital to the whole school and parents in school meeting – well done Sophie. Also in the meeting Inigo collected the class prize in the Book Week Quiz, which we had all had a lot of fun with.
What a busy week!
We had another fun day in Book Week yesterday. We dressed up to celebrate World Book Day – what an amazing selection of costumes.
We performed the poems we have been learning to some of the Governors. We all were brilliant and confident reciting our poem to the class and our visitors. Sophie was chosen as our winner and is going to perform her poem in today’s Book Week School Meeting. She will also get a prize.
In the afternoon we did a book quiz. We are waiting to find out who has the highest score and will win the class prize.
We had a super time yesterday on our walk around the village. We looked, listened and stomped about in lots of puddles. We wrote a poem based on the Shirley Hughes poem We went to the park.
