Mrs Allport, Mrs Carbery, Mrs Keogh and the children welcome you to our class page.
Please keep popping by to see what we're upto.
HOW WILL IT END???
As part of our Literacy work, we have been reading Varjak Paw this term. Mrs Allport has not allowed us to sneak ahead to see what happens (not fair!) We have loved following Varjak's adventures as he encountered Outside and made friends and fought back against gangs and "Shhh... Sally Bones..."
BLAKESLEY HALL TRIP
We had a fantastic day at Blakesley Hall. We got to investigate Tudor artefacts, research the use of herbs, play with Tudor toys and do brass rubbings (Mrs Allport loved this! She loved doing this when she was our age...) After lunch wee went out to the herb garden to put our research into action. After that it was time to go into the actual Tudor House with our amazing guide Phil. He asked us lots of questions and we asked him lots too. We got to dress up as Mistresses and Gentlemen. Didn't we look good? We had our very own Tudor Yeoman in Eesah and a very overworked servant Jane in Ava. There were so many things to find out. We were all agreed that Sir Richard had a better life than his servant Jane.
COLLECTING IDEAS FOR POETRY OUTSIDE
We went out in the playground to collect ideas using the senses of hearing, seeing, feeling and smelling to help us create the "Song of the Playground" poem.
We had been doing inference work on a picture called "The Bullies." We created our own freeze frame of the characters after discussing their body language.
THURSDAY IS HOMEWORK & SPELLING TEST DAY
PE IS ON WEDNESDAY & FRIDAY
A FAIR TEST... Hmmm???
In science we have been finding out about solids, liquids and gases. We carried out an investigation to find out which type of chocolate would melt the quickest. We were very honest in why our tests were not fair (can you guess why from the photos?) Our favourite test was to see who could melt a chocolate button the quickest on their tongue... We'll let you decide from the photos :)
OUR VISIT TO SINGERS HILL SYNAGOGUE
We were very privileged to visit the Singers Hill Synagogue. Our guide Daniel was so lovely and friendly allowing all of us to try on prayer shawls and kippahs. We were fascinated by the length of Torah scrolls being as long as football pitches! Mrs Allport would like it known that our behaviour was exemplary and she and Mrs Carbery and Mrs Keogh were proud of us during the visit.
We were fascinated by the heavy downpour of rain that was happening.
BAPTISM ROLE PLAY
We have been studying the signs and symbols of Baptism. We also know the sequence of what happens at Baptism. Here is a few of us acting it out.
