As part of safety week, we had a visit from the police. They brought the riot van, some riot gear the children could try on and talked to us about their role.
Have a look at some of the photos.
On Monday we visited Chester.
We went around the Dewa experience.
We visited the museum, got to try on Roman clothes, dressed up as Roman soldiers and marched through Chester. We got into different positions like the Roman army and learnt how to fight like a Roman.
Even though it was a bit cold and wet, we all had an interesting day which brought our Roman’s learning to life!
Have a look at our photos of the day.
What was your favourite part of the day and what did you learn about the Romans?
To end our topic called “Does everyone need the same food to survive?” our parents came in this afternoon to help us make crafts to decorate our room to celebrate the end of Ramadan and prepare for a feast to celebrate.
We made prayer mats, Ramadan good deed paper chains and Ramadan crackers.
Thank you to the parents/grandparents who came.
Their feedback said:
“It was lovely to do activities with the children and see what they have been learning in class.”
“There was a fun variety of activities, an enjoyable afternoon.”
“I loved spending the afternoon with my son!”
“A well organised afternoon that kept the children entertained.”
Have a look at some of our photographs of the afternoon together.
This week we have been writing puzzle poems.
We have recorded ourselves reading our poems.
Can you guess which body part the poem is describing?
This morning we have thought about the sequence of events for our recount. Our events had to be in the correct order for us to write our recount later in the week. We were:
-In the airport
-on the plane
-the plane crashed
-in the desert
-packing our backpack
-collecting water and killing animals
-building the raft to escape the flood
Can you guess which freeze frame matches each event?
Can you write about a freeze frame?
Today in Numeracy the children have been thinking about how they can escape the island where we have crash landed in our plane.
They had to build a raft to carry 6 people ( and a wheelchair!) and get it to float.
No one managed to get it to float but we did use our skills of teamwork, perseverance, capacity, measuring of length and weight.
Have a look at our pictures.
Can you think why they didn’t float?
What would you do differently next time?
