A Vocabulary Sort of Week /

Wow! What high level vocabulary we have been learning in Maths this week! We have been using this vocabulary to discuss a range of shapes including quadrilaterals!

Can you use mathematical vocabulary to describe one of the quadrilaterals we have learnt about?

Fantastic Beasts /

Last week we began investigating reports. This is incredibly important as we have been asked by Newt Scamander to create an entirely NEW beast for his up coming book! His book contains the most beautiful, detailed sketches of these incredibly rare creatures, along with specific information about each fantastic beast! Naturally, we have stepped up to this challenge, but we know it will be tough (AND EXCITING!) Do you have any ideas about your beast? What will they look like? What will they be a hybrid of? Can you tell me any words or phrases that you’re thinking of including? Good luck class 7- Reply with your wonderful knowledge/ideas. Thank you. Mrs B

We love yoga in Year 3/4. It helps us build concentration and focus, as well as relaxing our bodies and releasing any tension!

Here we are in some of our yoga poses…

What a Week! /

We’ve had another fantastic week! We are on to our second piece of writing for this term and what excellent writers we’re becoming! Some amazing vocabulary being shared in Class 7 🙂

We have looked closely at verbs, choosing the most appropriate ones for our characters and even acting them out!

Then we had a look at how other authors write an action scene, identifying speech, action and description within passages.

We then began to do some shared writing, using some very technical stuff! Verbs, adverbs, adverbial phrases and even an embedded clause!

I’m very excited to see the drafts and the final pieces!

Sharing is Caring! /

We are at the very exciting stage of our writing piece now, where it all comes together! We’ve all worked extremely hard on our character descriptions for Batman.

Here we are sharing our work with a partner and asking them for advice… Does it make sense? Are my sentences different lengths? Have I used effective vocabulary? Is it organised? Where can I go next?

It always helps to have a fresh pair of eyes look at our writing!

What a fantastic day!

We were given ‘The Twits’ story and asked to create something to write about!  I really loved seeing you all turn yourself in to a TWIT! Your Art work was fantastic!

What did you enjoy most about Roald Dahl day and why?

Here are some Class 7 Twits…
