It was so lovely to welcome all the children back to school this week and hear all about their Christmas adventures. Thank you so much to the children for all their hard work that has taken place over the break. So many of you have completed lots of challenges on our Timetables site, read lots of books including our class text and practised handwriting. Our new class text, The Wolf Wilder, has already sparked our imagination. Our descriptive writing has been set in a very, cold, snowy Russia with amazing scenery which the children have used all their grammar skills to describe in detail. The children have been inspired to write outstanding descriptive writing. Here are some examples:
'The red cloaked girl leapt on the wild wolf and sprinted until her energy was empty'
'Labouring through frosty icing sugar snow,saliva shot out of Grey's mouth, as we pushed our way home.'
'Frost of fear piroutted down my spine.'
'The wolves were stretching their legs like rubber bands. as they raced across the frozen landscape'
We are looking forward to creating some wonderful art work for our displays based on the story. Watch this space for photos in the near future. Our maths work is centred on number using multiplication and division. They have been solving tricky word problems and using a systematic approach when reasoning. Our topic this term is based on Our Wonderful World and the children will be carrying out research of Continents, Capitals and Countries whilst finding out about traditions and customs. It was brilliant to welcome Mark Sanderson into school to show the children how to access the world through Virtual Reality; we all actually felt like we had visited Russia this week. Alongside all of this the children are learning key French words and numbers whilst practising their skills on their class mates. What a busy but fun filled term we have planned.
