Billionaire Boy

This half term we have been reading David Walliams’ book, Billionaire Boy. Last week, we wrote a piece of direct speech between Bob and Joe in the style of Walliams and acted our the argument in pairs.

Relax Kids

Over the last few weeks, we have had a visitor from Relax Kids join us every Thursday. She has been teaching us different ways to relax, including breathing techniques and stretches.

Emmeline Parkhurst

During one of our History lessons, we focused on the work of Emmeline Parkhurst and the Suffragettes. We created our own Suffragette posters during this lesson and marched around the school field, imagining how the Suffragettes would have felt over 100 years ago as they took part in demonstrations. Some also gave their own speeches, hoping to encourage others to join them in the march.

Structures

In D.T, we have been exploring the different types of structures in Italy including the Leaning Tower of Pisa and the Colosseum.

Rock Investigation

In Science we have been investigating different types of rocks. During this investigation, the children explored the colours, textures and shapes of the rocks before deciding the type of rock each sample belonged in.

World Book Day

We had a fantastic day for World Book Day, we created our own bookmarks to match our current Guided Reading book, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. We also enjoyed completing a few quizzes, including The Masked Singer and Book Catchphrases. Then we ended our day reading The Ickabog whilst enjoying a cupcake.
