P4b October-November Learning Logs


Last week we began learning about optical illusion art. This week we started to make our own optical illusion cubes- that was really fun and interesting. Opical illusion art plays tricks on your eyes! -Carla and Jai

We worked really well suring literacy this week. We were taught how to use the dictionary. Now we keep the dictionary on our table so we can use it to find a new word for our writing and to help with spelling- Blair

I think we really achieved our skill this week, ‘Working Together’. We shoudllg focus on a new skill next week- Hannah

Pupil Comments:

In the morning before we srat reading work on big writing we have to guess the meaning of a word that our teacher displays on the smartboard. This is really fun! The person who gets the closest guess gets to look up the actual meaning in the dictionary and share it with the class. This week we learnt the weord ‘haste’- it means to do something very fast. I woud like to do this every week so we learn a lot of nwe words.


This week we worked really well on our big writing- we focused on VCOP and adjectives to describe a spooky scene- Liam
