What fabulous writers you are!
Well I have been literally blown away by the amazing (and fearsome!) dragon descriptions we have written this week! The children have come up with such powerful vocabulary and have put together such image-creating sentences that I was terrified of the dragons they were describing! They were all equally full of such great word choices, noun phrases and similes that I couldn't find a piece of work that stood out above the rest. I had no choice but to give the whole class the golden award this week for their amazing effort! You have a very proud teacher!
In maths, we have been exploring the properties of 2D and 3D shapes further, investigating symmetry and turning ourselves clockwise and anticlockwise in quarter, half and three quarter turns! We have also been trying to remember all the things we have learned, especially reading scales when not all the numbers are there, and finding three quarters of an amount. We are really trying to spot patterns and link our learning together! The secret word is Maasai Mara.
The children have been really enjoying our Kenya topic and can hopefully tell you all about the different landscapes we could find there. We watched a bit of 'Earth from Space', which is on BBC at the moment, that showed us how the wet and dry seasons affect the landscape and the animals that fight to survive in Kenya. We have also started going on a fact hunt, and we're going to find some good ones all about where people live, how they live and what things are important to their culture and traditions. We will carry on this exploring next week too!
Have a lovely bank holiday weekend, let's hope the sun comes out!
