World Book Day- Thursday 5th March 2020
The children had a fantastic day celebrating World Book Day on Thursday 5th March 2020. They shared stories, discussed their favourite books and even their favourite authors. During Maths, EO had to be code breakers and work out the question at the end by adding numbers together. The question at the end read 'What is your favourite book?'
Then, EO made their way down to the hall and continued a story which SBR and AJH had started. The other remainder classes would continue their part of the story once we had finished ours. We added in a treasure map to the story... it was very exciting!
In the afternoon, EO had a 'whale' of a time reading Julia Donaldson books, this is what we got up to; We read Snail and the Whale and made puppet whales. We read Spinderella and make Oreo Spinderellas/Hairy Godmothers. We read Cave Baby and decorated caves. We read Smartest Giants and made crowns. And finally, we read the Scarecrows Wedding and had a real life wedding with Harry and Betty!
We have started our new topic on recycling. The children have sorted out different materials for the different recycling bins and even made an up-cycled item!
An alien called Zag crashed his spaceship and landed on planet Earth! He needed help repairing his spaceship so EO needed to think of what Zag needed in his spaceship to rebuild it. EO had a go at making their spaceships and even making a nose cone for the front of them. The nose cone would help the spaceship to travel back to Zag's planet- Zupton, faster.
EO have been incredibly taken a deeper look at Antarctica, especially as our class explorer 'Alan', has been conducting his research there! We started off by discussing what Alan will need to bring to Antarctica before he jetted off. We gave reasons for the items of clothing using conjunctions, like so and because. Then, we had to use sequencing words to plan Alan's journey to Antarctica.
EO had to use descriptive sentences to describe Killer Whales, to add to Alan's travel journal. We really enjoyed listening to the Orcas making pulsed calls and whistles and discussed how they make these noises as a way of communicating with other whales.
When we came back after Christmas, we started off our topic again by asking questions for Alan's investigation. We used question words at the start and a ? at the end. Unfortunately, Alan's hot chocolate kept on going cold before he could drink it. To help Alan we decided to think of ways he could keep his flask warm.
To finish our topic on Antarctica, EO made a checklist for a factual report. We used it to make reports about seals and penguins.
