Class 3 have been finishing off their Termors topic by learning all about tectonic plates. We learned that the earth's crust is made up of huge slabs of rock which move very slowly. We recreated transform, divergent and convergent movements with Oreo biscuits.
We finished off our week with the debut performance of James and the Giant Peach. We have been learning all about script writing in literacy. We took sections of the Roald Dahl book and worked in groups to turn it into a play script. We worked hard to learn our lines and add expression and actions to performance. We really enjoyed showing the school and parents our work!
We had a great time at our parents afternoon. Thanks to the power of a time travelling shawl, we got to meet the scientist Mary Anning. We interviewed her to find out all about her fascinating life and her work with fossils. We then went to make our own fossils using play dough, plaster of paris and shells. Have a look how they turned out!
Class 3 managed to blow the staff away with their incredible homework! The creativity and effort put in is really impressive! What do you think?
We have been preparing to put on a performance for the rest of the school. We are reading James and the Giant Peach in class and have turned parts of it into scripts. Here you can see us working in groups to transform bits of the book into scripts which we will act out. We can't wait to show the rest of the school!
