Spring Term

We started off the day with some Sing Up! It was great fun - and we really hit some high notes!
We have been joining in with PE With Joe! It was a great way to get our blood pumping and our hearts racing! If you want to join in at home, follow this link

In our computing lesson we have been using a branching database to identify different animals by answering yes/ no questions. We had to use our knowledge of nocturnal animals and different animal habitats, as well as learning this new skill, to be successful.
In English we have been learning about the features of non-fiction writing. We had to put a jumbled up non-fiction report back together then label the features we have learnt about so far...
To go with our learning about nocturnal animals, we have painted our own version of Van Gogh's Starry Night. We used wax crayons for the detail then did a watercolour wash over the top. 
We received a mystery letter this morning! It was dated September 1666 and it came from a man called Thomas Farriner. The letter talked about a 'raging inferno' and asked us to investigate and tell everyone in the country what was going on!
We have found out our letter is about the Great Fire of London! Some of us got into role as King Charles and everyone else asked him questions. We wanted to know how he was going to stop the fire, how he was going to help all the homeless people and what he would use to rebuild the city.
Today we acted out the day and night before the fire. We though about what we would have smelt and heard, how we would have felt and what we would do to save ourselves.
Today we started our Plants topic by closely observing different types of seeds and the making a detailed drawing of them. We looked at sunflower seeds, beans and cress seeds and talked about the similarities and differences.
