Even though we are not currently in school, our remote learning is keeping us busy.  We have been exploring the world of Shakespeare this term and have been reading a modern day language version of Romeo and Juliet.  Here are some examples of our work from home.

 

During remote learning, we have also been researching all about the city of Rome, which was where the boy came from in our class text 'King of the Sky'.  We found out lots of interesting facts and produced some non-chronological reports.
We have started our new text called 'King of the Sky' by Nicola Davies.  Today we explored interesting vocabulary that would be relevant to describe the setting of the book.  We placed the vocabulary onto a zone of relevance.  We used dictionaries to check the meanings of the words we were unfamiliar with.

To commemorate Remembrance Day, Beech class learned ‘In Flanders Fields’ by John McCrae by heart.  They worked to use appropriate intonation and volume to give a group performance of the poem.

Poetry inspired by Remembrance Day and our work on war poetry

 

Working together to sort different vocabulary into their word classes- nouns/verbs/adjectives and adverbs.
We have been watching a short film clip called 'The Piano'.  Today's challenge was to give me goosebumps as I read their writing and Beech class certainly rose to the challenge!
We have been working on varying our sentence structures to make our sentences more interesting.  Today we played a matching game to see if we could make some complex sentences based around the theme of our new topic 'The Piano'.  
We have begun our new class text of 'The Lost Happy Endings'.  We explored vocabulary in the book that the author used to show how the mood and atmosphere of the story had changed from light to dark and that something sinister might be about to happen.  We have also been exploring the character of the witch in the story and thinking about what we can infer about her from her actions in the story.
We have been reading a text called 'Every Child A Song' by Nicola Davies. It is a story about every child having a voice and how that voice should be heard. Today we wrote some poems inspired by the story.
