Next week we move into the final few days before our exhibition on Thursday 23rd.
The whole class are working extremely hard for this and we hope to have as many visitors as possible. This week we have been putting the final creative touches to our work and had a lot of fun. The groups have also started to plan how they will show their learning journey and present their work. All groups have come up with some very inventive ideas! It will all be very exciting.
In other areas we have been looking at perimeter in maths and finding quick ways to calculate the perimeter of regular shapes and symmetrical shapes.
in English we are continuing to write our balanced argument about deforestation. The children have really impressed me with how quickly they have grasped the features and structure of this type of writing. I hope to show some finished work shortly.
We have done it again! For the second time this term we have won the attendance cup for the week! Well done everyone. Let’s see if we can win again the first week back and keep aiming for that 100% status! The more you are school, the more you will learn!!
What a great day we had dressing as wild animals for the day and raising money for this cause. I was impressed with the effort the children, (with a lot of help from parents), had taken to transform themselves into wild animals. Some were very realistic and as a result very scary!
What do you think?
Last week we had a surprise visit from a number of animals and creatures that may be found in the rainforest. We all had great fun holding, stroking and looking closely at our visitors. Even a large snake!
Some pictures from the morning visit
Well we have reached the end of our first full week and what a busy and exciting week it has been!
Everyone has settled back into school with a positive attitude and full of knowledge and interest around our new topic – The Rainforest. Thank you for all your support with holiday homework, the children have worked hard and been very creative.
At the start of the week we had our trip to Leeds to Tropical World and the parks. Everyone was well behaved and fortunately we managed to dodge most of the heavy rain! Here are a few pictures from the day:
We have also been playing games to revise spelling patterns, we had lots of fun!
As an added bonus, on Friday the class were awarded the trophy for best whole class attendance for the week! We only had 1 child off for 1 day! Next week we are aiming for 100% attendance, I’m sure we can achieve this.
