Thank you to everybody who came to our Stay and be Festive morning. The children had a wonderful time creating lots of festive crafts.
In the afternoon we enjoyed our Christmas party. We went into the hall to play some party games and then enjoyed lots of delicious party food. We even had a special visit from a very important person....
Well, we didn't win the Singing Square but we still had a great time.
We have been looking at lots of different poems this week. We were looking for different types of language, patterns and rhyme. Here we are reading Winter poems in partners.
In our partners we had to recite our poem in front of the class. Ms Stapleton was looking to see if we could read with fluency and expression.
We then moved onto reading some Cinquain poems. A cinquain poem has a very specific layout. Have a look at these examples of cinquain poems.
So, What is a Cinquain poem?
We have written our own cinquain poems about Winter and Christmas.
In literacy we have been reading Samuel Pepys' diary so that we could find more out about the Great Fire of London.
We have looked at the features to include when you write a diary entry. Can you remember 3 features that you need to include?
We then wrote our own diary entry as if we were alive in 1666 and witnessed the fire. Have a look at our amazing writing. Ms Stapleton was super proud of us.
This week in numeracy we have been comparing numbers using the symbols < = >.
We watched a really fun video to help us remember which way round the symbols go!
This video is for all the Frozen fans....
We played lots of different games with our friends so that we could practise using the symbols.
Ms Stapleton and Mr Williams
