Squirrels Letters

 

This week has been very exciting as we have begun reading Road Dahl's 'The BFG'! We have started to think about the character is descibed in the early chapters and we used noun phrases to write our own descriptions. 

We then wrote recipes to explain how to make a meal for a big, friendly giant! We are looking forward to reading more next week and finding out what happens.

On Wednesday evening and Thursday afternoon we put on our Christmas productions. We all sang beautifully, spoke clearly and had lots of fun dancing our dances! 

Here we are dressed and chilling before our performance

This week, we have been working very hard completing all of our assessments for the term. We have all tried our best and shown lots of resilience!

We have also been rehearsing the Christmas Production and practising our dances and lines ready for the shows next week. 

This week we have been writing instructions ready to follow to make our cookies in a jar mixtures. 

On Friday we got to have lots of fun actually making them! We measured all of the ingredients and put them in a jar. We then designed labels and sewed hems to make material lids for the tops.

We think they look really good. Come along and buy one at the Christmas Bazaar! 

This week we have spent a lot of time reading the story of the Pied Piper of Hamelin. We have had debates about whether the Pied Piper was a good or a bad man, thought about how to convince the mayor to help with the problem of the rats and then re-told the story during our Big Write session.

Look how hard at work we were! 

We have made a really big effort to use our spelling dictionaries and our writing prompts to help us to spell key words correctly too. 

 

This week we continued reading 'The Pied Piper of Hamelin'. We thought about how we could  solve the problem of the rats!

In PSHCE we  read Miss Moore's favourite book, 'Something Else' by Kathryn Cave. We thought about how we are all unique but that we all belong together as well as strategies for solving conflicts. We then wrote our own versions of the end of the story. 

We had our class assembly this afternoon and it went really well.
