It's the end of the first week back after half term and we've had a great week in Ash Class. We have started lots of new topics which have engaged and excited the children. In English, we have learnt about Cinquain poems. These are shaped like a diamond and have 5 lines. As a class, we wrote 2 poems together:
Loud and noisy
Crashing, booming, banging
Waking children in the night time
Solid and smooth
Breaking, crunching, munching
It's delicious not nutritious
In Maths, we have just finished our unit on fractions and will begin learning about decimals next week. Science involved starting our topic all about 'Light and we investigated the difference between transparent, translucent and opaque materials. We are studying Geography this term and our topic is 'Migration'. The children had a lot of questions about this which we will answer in the coming weeks.
World Book Day was celebrated on Thursday by designing and decorating our own t-shirts featuring our favourite book characters, then either wearing the t-shirts or dressing up today. Have a look at some of the photos below - the children looked great!
