Autumn 2

Week 6



This week we put our green screen training to the test. Here is a sneak preview of what might be to come on your 2020 Christmas cards. It's certainly a year we are never going to forget!!

Hear how we can sing a tricky song by Adele now that we have improved our tone, range and breathing for singing. Get the tissues ready!

Christmas Craft Day

Christmas Craft day was really good fun. We took our time and worked carefully to produce a beautiful handcrafted tree decoration out of natural materials and a pine cone Fir tree. We missed having our adults there but we can't wait to surprise them with the lovely things we have made. Make some space on the Christmas tree!!

Week 5



Homework this week is to get started and make a decision on which country you are going to research and present to us from South America. You can present in ANY way you like, eg, video, audio recording, use green screen, folder, make a booklet, poster, model . You choose! The homework is due in the week we come back after Christmas. Make a good start on it this week as normal homework will resume next week too!

Week 4

We are so excited to have recorded our mini Christmas performance for you this week. We're giving nothing away, but here are a couple of clues.....

Look at our beautiful Rangoli patterns. We learned about line and drawing in pen this week in Art and what better way to put our skills to the test than to design Rangoli patterns? Especially as it was Diwali last week!

Week 3

WOW! What a day! One minute we're in the classroom and the next, in the middle of the Amazon Rainforest!! At least that's what it looks like. We were lucky enough to receive Green Screen training from Mr Hughes today, so beware, we can now fool you lots!

Week 2
Lest We Forget

We honoured and remembered our service men and women this week with a two minute silence at 11am on the 11th day of the 11th month. We studied the poem "In Flanders Fields" by John McCrae - get use to explain the figurative language he uses to you, and we spent the afternoon using our fabulous water-colour painting skills to create beautiful images of a poppy field.

This week we have finally finished our fabulous book "The Explorer" by Katherine Rundell. We enjoyed it so much and managed to use it ass a basis to create so many different types of writing. Using the text, we wrote and designed a persuasive leaflet, a diary entry, created radio broadcasts, wrote a persuasive letter to the Ambassador of Brazil in London and our final piece is underway now, writing our own narrative based on the story. Here are some of our strongest pieces for you to enjoy. 
Week 1

In RE this week, we began our new unit looking into the importance of faith. We identified the meaning of the word "worth" and how it linked to worship. We challenged each other to a quiz style game. It was great fun!

We continued learning our skills in painting using powder paint. We managed to vary tone in two different ways without using white or any other colours, just water.
