Today has been a bit of a sad day because we said farewell to Miss Wallis and Mr Hunt, our student teachers. They have been working with us for a few months now and will really be missed. We thank them so much for all of their hard work and for being part of the Ash Class team!
This week, we went on our trip to Tiverton Museum on Tuesday. We took part in three workshops - one which epxlored Anglo-Saxon farming and settlements, one which looked at their traditions such as writing with runes, and another in which we had the opportunity to do some traditional weaving. After the Anglo-Saxon themed morning, we got to look around the rest of the museum during the afternoon. The children particularly enjoyed looking at the 'Tivvy Bumper' steam engine and exploring the WW1 and WW2 exhibition. You can have a look at the photos on our ClassDojo page.
The rest of the week has been busy too! We've finished our extra chapter to the Beowulf story and I've read some great descriptive writing full of monsters, battles and heroes. We've carried on finding perimeters in Maths and learnt how to find missing sides. We finished off the 'Light' topic by discovering some uses of light including periscopes and telescopes. This will lead nicely into our next science topic... Space!
Here is the acrostic poem from Miss Wallis' guided reading group this week:
S - searing your eyes
U - using water to reflect
N - never look at me
Have a great half term everyone!
