The first photos in the gallery below are our owl fridge magnets that we finished before Christmas.On to term 3, which was only six weeks long, but we packed a lot in.Here are some of our highlights.
For Safer Internet Day we joined with the rest of the school in an activity called ‘Wear your words.’ We wrote kind messages about each other on sticky labels, and stuck them on each other. It was lovely to walk round covered with positive words, even though we may have looked a little odd, check out the photo in our gallery below.It reminded us that words said or written on social media cannot be unsaid, and kind messages definitely make us feel better.
Our topic on Famous People got off to a great start with some fantastic homework in various media featuring a very wide range of famous people, from Samuel Pepys to Taylor Swift. We began by learning about George Stephenson, known as ‘ The Father of the Railway,’ and famous for his early locomotive, The Rocket. We wrote letters as if we had been at the competition that the Rocket won. Everybody looks very surprised to see a steam engine moving on rails.We have also learned about the daring rescue carried out by Grace Darling. We used newspaper reports to tell the story this time. You can see some examples of our work in the gallery below.
We had a wonderful morning when Florence Nightingale came to visit. She told us about her childhood, and taught us the sort of dancing she would have done. Take a look at the photos of us pretending to be the telegraph wire that brought the message from The Crimea to England that people were dying in dirty hospitals. Off we go to Turkey! We did a lot more that day and we learned a lot.
We thank parents who sent in a lot of food to test for fat content. The result was very clear! After being left overnight most foods left a greasy mark on paper. We arranged the results in order of the size of the mark see our photos in the gallery. That taught us a lot.
To finish with, two you tube videos of grammar songs that have been very popular this year. We take no responsibility for ads or other clutter surrounding these clips, but the songs are great. They have been the most requested clips despite being decades old.
