After a busy yet productive half term, we were all a bit wiped out. What better way to end the term, than with a "Wellbeing Workout", we zoned out with peer massage, restorative yoga and a guided meditation. Some of us actually fell asleep.....and SNORED (THOMAS!!!) Enjoy your week off, remember to do something other than stare at screens!!
CONGRATULATIONS OLLIE! Player of the Week! Well done - we are proud of you!
Look at our FAB Roman Museum!
Roman Day was a huge success! The children enjoyed tasting Roman food that included apples with honey and yoghurt, pickled fish, olives, feta cheese, figs and dates. They made mosaics out of dried beans and pulses. They created jewellery called Bollas that children wore, inside it was a secret message in Latin. They also made Roman coil pots. Our parents joined us for the last activity of the day and watched the children perform two songs. Just Like a Roman that we learned with British Sign Language actions and Pompeii by the band Bastille. Thank you to all for your support in providing such super costumes and for joining us in our learning this afternoon.
Today we are creating our own scene from a window. The scene will be from two different places in time, for example the past and the future. We are going to use our fantastic poetic skills to expand noun phrases, use fronted adverbials and create contrast to produce a wonderful group poem. Who said poetry was boring???
Your Roman projects have blown us away! What a super effort you have all made - we're two very proud teachers!
We played a silly and sensible game to help us understand and learn how to use fronted adverbials. It was funny but we learned lots!

Our Literacy focus recently has been Explanations. We have learned all about causal conjunctions, time adverbials and imperative verbs. We have discovered how we can improve our explanation skills and use that to clarify and add detail to our answers. Today, we have started showcasing our skills by using our fabulous class reader, The Doomspell by Cliff McNish, to explain the process of a child turning into a witch using evidence from the text to make sure it is in chronological order. All this learning from a book we are loving. Life is good!
