This term the class have been doing observational drawing using natural resources.
Here are some of their pencil drawings of shells and starfish.
As part of our creative writing we have been using the book ‘The Journey’.
The book is a series of illustrations, so through class discussion and imagination the class have been writing their own versions of the story.
World Book Day Activities
It would not be a World Book day without some fort of dressing up so this year we chose to come to school and read our books in our pyjamas. The children came in many varied outfits and looked splendid in assembly.
Local Author Suzan Moule
Local author Suzan Moule came to talk to and read with Early Years and KS1
We started the day with an assemble about the value of books and reading.
This was followed by small groups sharing the experience of’ Woody’s Park’ her children’s book based on the adventures of Woody the dog and his friends in the park.
Later in the morning Suzan talked to years 4,5 and 6 about ‘The Author’s writing journey’
Hopefully she will inspire some of our pupils to have a go at writing their own stories and who knows may become an author themselves one day.
Local Publisher Mr Richard Barker
Also during the day Mr Richard Barker, who works for a publishing firm came to talk about
‘The Life of a book’.
How does the original story go from a rough draft to a finished book?
Richard spent time with the KS2 classes explaining the process.
Many thanks to both our visitors for their support of our World Book day activities.
Vikings and Anglo Saxons
The class have been learning about how the vikings lived.
They have discovered how they built their ships, the homes they lived in and some of their customs.
The class has also looked at some of the Mythical legends and creatures. There has been some super art work from the children drawing their own mythical creatures.
Here are some of their fantastic designs.
Year 4 have been producing some lovely work this term around their topic on Eygptians. You can see their models of the gods which take many different forms.
The above shows some of their written work around the gods.
This week they have been using pictorial mind maps to work through story writing.
Today, we have been looking at different types of angles in our playground. We saw right angles, obtuse angles and acute angles. A right angle is when 2 straight lines meet at 90°. We used the corner of our books to check if an angle was a right angle or not. An acute is less than 90°. An obtuse angle is more than 90° but less 180°.
Can you spot the different angles in our pictures? We found lots!
