Today a very mysterious box appeared in our class. We knew it was a clue for our new Literacy Tree book. We opened the box and found lots of interesting items. We tried to guess what the story might be about and the relationship that might exist between the people we could see in the photograph. Finally we labelled a picture in our books making sure to use some amazing adjectives!

Today the whole class dressed up in our Christmas jumpers and had a very special assembly. We listened to the nativity story and added our decorations to the tree. We all had fun trying to guess the punchline to Christmas jokes and had a sing-song with Mr Griffiths and Mr Collard, too.

Today Miss Brock prepared an art activity. The school Christmas tree looked a little empty so we made these fantastic sheep out of paper plates, wool and pieces of card.
Don't they look great!?

Today we had an amazing science lesson. First, we learnt some important vocabulary. Then we went to the playground and role played the various parts of the body that are involved in the circulation system. This really helped us to understand how it works. Finally, those of us with a stronger stomach came into class and watched a video of a real-life heart beating!

This week we worked really hard in our computing lesson. We used a program on Ipads called Imotion to take lots of pictures of toys and other objects. For each picture we moved the objects very slightly. At the end the software put together all of our pictures into a stop-motion-animation.

Today we concluded our cultural week activities by taking part in Mr Toke's traditional Mexican "hat dance" dancing lesson. We had great fun copying the moves and changing the main move for each chorus.

Today we commemorated Remembrance Sunday by having an assembly, discussion and listening to the last post.
It was very special.

Today we heard a rumour that there were monsters hiding throughout the school so we went to investigate! We saw strange tails sticking out from their hiding places and took them back to class. We noticed that they were dragons' tails and explored what we knew, thought we knew and want to learn about them.
We can't wait to start our new Literacy Tree lessons: The Dragon Machine!

Today was the final lesson of our light unit. We have learnt so much including about shadows. We all made shadow puppets and put on a special performance for our class mates!

Mr Collard noticed that we had been working very hard in class and thought we could do with a little cheering up. We finished our work quickly and found the time to make our own rolls!
In Maths we have been learning that we can use different methods to solve a problem. We created a lovely wall display for the whole school to see 4 ways to use addition:
Can you think of other ways?
Our class wall looks amazing! We created advice posters to warn London about the risks that a fire would bring and how to help prevent them from spreading.
The Great Fire of London.
In our literacy tree lessons we will be learning about the great fire of London. To start the unit we have been imagining trips to see some London landmarks. We worked hard to write, redraft and create postcards. When they were finished we took them to a real post office and posted them to our families!
