When he had finished interviewing us, he asked to record some jingles for the radio!!  You’ll be able to hear them on air from next week.

This week we have been writing biographies based around fictitious characters that we have designed. In Maths we have looked at fractions and at developing our logical reasoning skills and of course we performed our class assembly.

In our Literacy this week we have been looking at biographies.  To link this to our topic work we decided that we would make a ‘Missing Poster’ for a character that had disappeared after a natural disaster and within that we would include details of their lives.  Have a look one that we did below, what do you think?

Missing Baker

In Maths we were playing some games that develop your logic reasoning skills.  One of these was a game called Factory Balls.  You start with a plain white ball and have to decide what steps to take and in which order to achieve the finished effect.  This was really, really tricky but, with practise, our skills improved.

After so much hard work, and such a strong performance in our Class Assembly I simply could not have chosen one child as Star of the Week so I’ve had to choose everyone!

This week we have been writing a balanced argument about building on floodplains, researching natural disasters for our class assembly and preparing a script for our performance.

This week, in our Literacy lessons, we have been looking at the planned development on the DIRFT site.  This includes building three new primary schools, as well as building a new high school, and 6,200 new homes.  This has been linked with our Angry Earth topic because part of the site for this development is a floodplain. We have looked at the reasons supporting building on a floodplain and the reasons against building on a floodplain.  It was difficult writing a balanced argument because you cannot share your opinion until the conclusion.  It has to be very impartial and very factual to give people the chance to make up their own minds.

Part of the class homework for the last few weeks has to be make something linked to our Angry Earth topic – although this could not be a volcano as we had made them in school.  The results were absolutely amazing!  You can see the pictures of the children’s tsunamis, tornados and earthquakes and the amount of time, effort and care as well as creativity that was put into these is obvious.  As a result of this, all of these children will be given Star of the Week this week.  How could you possibly choose between them?

With our class assembly looming, we have attempted something a little different.  Without giving too much away, we will have pre-recorded some sections of our assembly that will hopefully be seamlessly intermingled with the ‘live’ aspect of our show.  It has given us an opportunity to experiment with some of the new technology we have in school including using a ‘green screen’.  A green screen is something that people use to add special effects.  For example, by using a green screen, we can record our video and then ‘remove’ the green screen and replace it with another image or video making it appear that we are in fact somewhere completely different.  You can see us using this in this picture.

This week we have been playing Tag Rubgy in the sun, writing different types of poems based around natural disasters and continued our work on our volcanoes. 

This week we have been working more on poems that use rhyming couplets.  This means that each pair of lines rhyme and have the same rhythm.  We’ve also been experimenting with more figurative language.  What do you think of our examples?

  • ‘A thundering heart beat’
  • ‘A terrifying monster lurking in the shadows’
  • ‘The ground shaking like an electric shock through the Earth’
  • ‘A blanket of lava flowing down the volcano’

Can you tell which natural disaster we were describing?

We have been playing Tag Rugby now that the weather has improved and we are able to go outside more for PE.

You have two tags, that you wear on your hips, and to make a ‘tackle’ you need to pull someone’s tag off.

We are not allowed to hold on to our tags to protect them or use our arms to stop people taking them so we have to use our footwork and speed, making it much more difficult!

Since we have just starting playing Tag Rugby we have been using a range of drills to improve our basic skills before we try to play a game.

These have included playing “Last Man Standing”, “Stuck in the Mud” and “Tails”.  These were really fun and help us learn to look for gaps and avoid opposing players.

We also tried some passing drills to get used to passing the ball backwards and using two hands to pass the ball properly.  As we improved we moved further and further apart to make it harder.  Mr McKee even managed to juggle with three rugby balls – that looked really tricky!

A special thank you must go to Robert for taking these fantastic, and very artistic, photographs.

In our DT work we have continued our volcanoes.  We’ve had to make a small change to our designs though – initially we were going to make a small container to fit inside that we could use to hold the vinegar and bicarbonate of soda which would make the volcano ‘erupt’.

However, the glue gun melted the plastic that we were trying to use!   Like all good designers, though, we didn’t give up.  We have amended our designs and are hoping that they will still look fabulous!
