Reading Buddies

Our Year 6 Reading Buddies came to our class this morning to share their reading expertise with us. We loved it. They told us why reading is so important.

Character Traits for Fable Animals

In literacy, we are learning and writing about the character traits of different animals for our own fables. We looked at the lion and gorilla in particular and recorded what their traits were like for our own work later in the week.

Here is Jasmine and Maisie to share their animal traits.

Half term holiday homework

Your homework for the holidays is to carry on with your research for Denton in the past (see the blog post further down). We have also set you a challenge to learn how to spell 50 words from the National Curriculum list of 100 Year 3 and Year 4 spellings. We will be holding a spelling bee after the holiday with a grand prize for the winners.

School reopens on Monday 13th June. Have a lovely break !

We had a great time learning about how Victorian children were taught at school. We took part in Victorian lessons, enjoyed playing games from the era and were punished by an almost authentic Victorian teacher! image

Victorian Day in 3L

We looked fantastic in our Victorian costumes that we brought in for our homework. Our teacher dressed up as a Victorian teacher and was called Mr Postlethwaite, and we dressed up as poor Victorian children.

As you can see from the photos in the gallery below, we played Victorian games, wrote Victorian poems, chanted maths times tables, said the National Anthem, Wore a dunces hat if we were naughty (all of us did this) and lots more.

Today we have been using the skills we learnt to create our own masterpieces inspired by L.S Lowry.
