Big Writing – we all wrote to Mrs Penman about our museum trip. Some of us tried to use paragraphs in our writing. It was fun.
This week in Social Studies we learned about Ancient Egyptian Gods. We had to find facts about them. We also had to find out about Tutankhamun and create a booklet.
We had fun learning about similes and metaphors. We listened to examples in pop music and in a group we had to find similes and metaphors and say what they meant.
We are all learning about the time and how to read it on analogue and digital clocks. We had to plan cinema trips or work out how long things take.
This week we went to the museum to find out about ‘Death in Ancient Egypt’. A teacher at the museum took us to a classroom where we had a workshop. We got to handle real Egyptian artefacts and learn about mummification.
After that we had a walk around the museum. We enjoyed seeing the different things on display. We really enjoyed the animals and the hot air balloons. We all weighed ourselves together to see what animals we could match.
This week we read ‘The Day the Crayons Quit’ in Muckle Reading. It was really good as everyone got a letter written and it was very enjoyable. The story was good and funny with good letters and pictures. We got a lot of WOW words from it. I think we were creative.
This week we enjoyed mental maths. It gets your brain working – is it this answer? I think we should do it everyday for our brains. Then our brains are working for the day.
In ICT we were playing on Education City. This is one of our stars this week.
