We've started getting ready for our class assembly which is on Friday February 28th. We hope parents and carers will be able to come as we share some of what we've learnt in our brilliant Bright Lights, Big City topic.
We are learning a song which all the children have taken the words home for. Please could you practice it at home using the video below. Thank you!
Have a lovely half-term break!
This week we continued our learning about The Great Fire of London by writing a diary entry. We played the part of Toby from our key text; Toby and The Great Fire of London.
We then moved onto a new traditional tale; The Princess and the Pea! We worked in small groups and used a range of props to retell the story. We had lots of fun!
We kick started the week with an amazing workshop day focusing on The Great Fire of London. We had so much fun taking part in all of the different activities and got to show off our acting skills!
We created a human map of the UK to help us to understand where London is located in relation to Barnsley. We also create a human timeline where we acted out key events as the Great Fire was unfolding.
It was a fantastic day that really enhanced our learning and brought it to life!
In Geography we have been helping one another get around London using the directional language we learnt last week. Have a look at the photos!
We've begun programming in our ICT lessons this week. We've been practising
using language like: left, right, forwards, backwards, quarter turn - and even clockwise and anti-clockwise. (You can practise some of these instructions at home!)
Then we put our skills to the test on Purple Mash and programmed the turtle.
Happy New Year!
It's been lovely to welcome the children back after the Christmas break.
We've begun looking at traditional tales in literacy and our story for the next couple of weeks is Cinderella. We're using Sarah Gibb's version of the story as our text, with it's beautiful watercolour illustrations.
