Larch class were ever so lucky to receive a visit today from Mr Hughes. He read his new poem about an alien called Larch who visits the six main biomes – a lovely link to our geography topic! We all LOVED the poem and are very grateful for Mr Hughes taking his time to share it with us. Our favourite parts included the mention of the ‘Cosmic Burger Place’ and the mention of Miss Reynolds. We are really excited to re-look at the poem next term during our poetry topic.
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 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.
Larch Class had the pleasure of Mrs Bastable teaching them about the religious meaning of Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh today and that Jesus was God’s gift to the world. We really enjoyed looking at and smelling the different materials.
As part of our Home Learning this week, we were set the challenge of making a biome using any materials we wanted. Miss Reynolds was very impressed! Check out our brand new display!
The rest of our day was spent completing lots of different activities which celebrated anti-bullying and the theme: change starts with us. As a class we discussed that if we all start by making small changes to our own individual behaviour, we can work together to successfully challenge bullying. Change starts with a conversation. It starts with checking in. It starts with working together!
Have a look at our odd socks in Larch Class! We spent this morning celebrating all of our differences and understanding that they make each of us unique.
In PE today we started our new dance topic. Using an image from ‘The Iron Man’ written by Ted Hughes as our stimulus, we worked in groups to come up with different movements. We took a taught motif and changed it using different levels, speeds, directions and added in our own movements too!
The children enjoyed discussing their achievements this half term with each other. Well done to all the children who attended. You have all worked really hard with your learning.
