Tiger Class have had another action-packed term, as you will see from our photos. At the end of term we sadly said ‘Goodbye’ to Mrs Winn. We will miss her greatly.
We had a fantastic day trip to Coleshill house and trained to be an auxiliary spy unit! We wore camouflage kit and learned how not to be seen in a wood. We visited an underground air-raid shelter and learned about the history of Coleshill House.
We earned our class treat this term by gaining 100 ‘Tiger points’ for excellent behaviour and hard work: Well done!
As part of our WW2 topic we have been reading ‘letters to the lighthouse’ by Emma Carroll. All the talk about lighthouses inspired us to design our own and we made these into calendars to take home for Christmas. The book is about some evacuees from London who go and stay in Devon – in a lighthouse! We also looked at the story of Rose Blanche – a picture book about a German girl and a German town during the war. We wrote fabulous descriptions of the setting for the story and finally wrote our own alternative ending for the book.
In Tiger Class we do a lot of READING! We are all reading books which we have chosen ourselves and we also have a class book. Every week we take a close look at a book as part of a group with Miss Bunclark. We share and recommend books each week, write book reviews and jump into each other’s books by reading aloud. Some of us do a bookclub, which involves reading a book together and discussing what is good and bad about it. Below are some pictures of us exchanging Christmas cards with our reading buddies from Squirrel Class. We get together once a week and listen to them read, then read them a story.
This term Tiger Class produced some excellent homework (see below). Maddison Longhurst made a very professional video of herself videoing her Grandad talking about WW2 – Maddison clearly has a talent for investigative journalism and would make a fantastic BBC Presenter! Amelie Hillier brought in some special family items including a real telegram that her family received during WW2. Samuel Rusin made a gigantic tank with his 3D printer and painted an enormous canvas of a spitfire – Well done!
Mrs Winn and Miss Bunclark would like to say a big ‘THANK YOU’ for all our lovely Christmas presents.
