The children in Class 2 have immersed themselves in the Literacy topic
A gripping story that the children are reading as a class.
The staff have also enjoyed the story and have transformed the
classroom into a Frozen Kingdom.
We are starting Wildtribe again every Tuesday morning!!
Please can children bring old warm clothes and wellies.
We kicked off Science week with a day of investigations. Children choose a question they wanted to investigate and set up an experiment around evaporation!
Great group work, predictions, measuring and fun was had!!
We then had our AMAZING trip to Plymouth Aquarium - where all the children took part in workshops and had a look around tthe aquarium!! The workshops included making a sub-marine out of different materials, using the morse code to work out codes and to use a claw to pick out different elements, a guided tour of the aquarium and mapping the sea. We had a fun- filled and enjoyable day. What was your favourite part?
This is some of the writing produced during SPAG (Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar) sessions at the end of the terms unit of work for some of our children.
They have been working on using the following techniques:
Their end of term assessment piece was to write a description setting imagining they were in the scene in the picture. They had to use as many of the taught techniques as they could. Here are two examples, how do you think they did? Can you spot the techniques in their writing?
'The trees branches were bony like fingers, the mottled bark was peeling off along the complete length of its trunk. Like a frantic force of nature, the wind was howling in the moonlight as shards of lightning struck the stone cold floor. Tall and imposing, the house stood with broken windows revealing it to be abandoned. All of the many planks of wood (providing the buildings structure), were damaged in some kind of way. Due to the fact that it was a graveyard, the ancient, abandoned tower had the appropriately grotty and old clock; I believed it would never keep time again. Surrounding the building, every tree was bare, with moody, anxious crows squaking at me. There were many floors and concrete steps. The old, oak door now stood only a few steps away from me. No turning back now, I moved towards it - my heart racing...' Year 6
'Here I was standing by an old and withered tree; naked - meaning no leaves at all. All I could see was grey; grey grass, grey leaves, grey trees. I raised my eyes up. In front of me I saw a grey, bashed, haunted and creepy house - it was almost swaying as the wind blew. With my heart rate getting faster and faster, I looked towards the graves that were there. They appeared crushed, broken, dirty...... alive? I hated this place!' Year 4
Our topic this term is World War 2-
Do you know who these famous people are?

The Perfect Pupil!
We will be spending a lot of time thinking about how we can be the 'perfect pupil' as part of our work on self motivation and self respect. We will think about what learning behaviours we need to demonstrate to show we are the best learner we can be. We will be making sculptures of the 'perfect pupil' for the entrance hall and will be writing about the qualities they have.
What would you put in as ingredients for the perfect pupil and the perfect learner?
Calling ALL explorers!!

We will be finding all about famous explorers, how they planned their expeditions and what impact they had when they returned to their home countries.
We will also have to plan our own expeditions!
What famous explorers can you think of?
On this section of our class page, you will find examples of our written work that we wanted to share with you.
Hope you enjoy reading our writing!!
