Firstly, Mrs Winn and Miss Bunclark would like to say a big thank-you for all the lovely Christmas presents and cards we received, they are much appreciated and we hope you all have a lovely Christmas.
During the past few weeks we have been working hard to learn the words for all the songs for our Christmas concerts. On Wednesday we performed at James Wilkes House, we enjoyed chatting to the residents and we added some sparkle to their day!
Tiger class have learned so much and shone so brightly in the Autumn term! We have been very busy learning all about World War 1. We have researched a hero/heroine from the war wrote biographies about them using our notes. We discovered many unsung heroes and heroines from the war. Learning about individuals meant that we could learn about the many roles people had during the war. We looked at the causes of World War 1 and wrote a newspaper article about the assassination of Franz Ferdinand. We also looked in detail about what life was like in the trenches. We imagined what it would be like to be a soldier in the trenches and wrote a letter home from a soldier’s point of view. We have been working hard on cursive handwriting and lots of us now have pen licenses!
In Science we carried out an investigation with pieces of bread – you can see the results below!
In Art this term we sketched and then created poppies, which we turned into calendars. We also created clay poppies to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the end of World War 1.
We visited Nova Hreod school to see the author Ali Sparkes talk about her books. She is an inspiring writer for children and lots of Tigers are now reading her books.
If you look in the gallery below you will see all our fabulous homework from Term 2.
We hope you have enjoyed reading our Blog. Next term we are studying the Victorians, so watch this space!
