This week in English we have been publishing our non-chronological reports on a rainforest animal. We used our knowledge from our geography lessons on biomes, alongside research completed in English and computing lessons, to create some fantastic pieces of work. Miss Reynolds is very impressed!
In Fir we looked at the journey Mary and Joseph took from Nazareth to Bethlehem.
We used the story of A Christmas Carol to learn how stories can teach us how to care for others. We really enjoyed acting in pairs and mad very convincing Scrooge’s!
In geography this week we used a range of resources to research the climate of the Amazon Rainforest. Using the information we found, we created weather reports and performed them to our class.
Today in Beech Class we sorted Fire Engines and Police Officers from the past. Miss McGeever showed children pictures from our own visit and asked the children to talk about the similarities and differences of each picture. During choosing the children were challenged to sort the Police officers themselves into the oldest picture to the newest picture.
During teacher time the children explored photos of fire engines from the past. In choosing the children sorted photos of police from the past and talked about the similarities and differences.
In computing today we had a go out recording sounds! We talked about different devices we could use to record sounds. We used talking tins and iPads to record the sounds you might hear in this rocket picture.
