Charlotte, Ife, Hattie and I have missed you all this week. But we have tried to make the most of this funny time. In class we have enjoyed collaborating to create a painting based on the poem, ‘The Listener’ by Walter De La Mare. We’ve also enjoyed exploring a new app, which allows up to compose our own music. This is something we will all be doing in Computing. All of us have toughly enjoyed writing our stories based on ‘The Listener’ and can’t wait to share them with you all! 

I would like to say a big Thank You to Zoe, Ty, Ife, Hattie and Charlotte for all their help and hard work this week! I really look forward to us all being back together again. Have a wonderful weekend to you all and your families.

Friday 21st January

Happy Birthday Hollie and congratulations to Jessie who is this week’s cup winner for composing and performing her song about looking after the environment.

This week we have been in a bubble due to the number of COVID cases in class, so sadly out performance of the “The Listeners” has had to be postponed until we are back to normal. However, we have started finding out about another great classic poem “The Highwayman”, by Alfred Noyes. We’ve only looked at Part 1 so far, but already we’ve noticed the rhymes, metaphors and similes. We also did some background research on highwaymen such as Dick Turpin and watched the song “Stand and Deliver”, by Adam and the Ants, a group from the 1980s. We’ve been making job adverts for a highwayman using modal words.

In Maths, we’ve been practising Divison and learning words such as Quotient, Divisor. Our Home Learning is on Division too.We are looking forward to beginning a unit on Fractions next week.

This morning in Science, we looked at absorbancy, impermeability and whether materials are porous. We did an experiment with different types of paper, cutting them into flower shapes and testing them in water to see how long it took for the flowers to open.

In History we collaborated in groups to do some research to present to the class. We all had huge sheets of paper to work on. The topics we researched were: Clothes and Jewellery, Houses and Homes, Religion and Gods, Writing and Longships.

In Re, we began our new topic – “What is it like to be a Muslim in Britain today”. It was freezing on Wednesday when we did Lacrosse, but a small sided game and some shooting at goal practice soon warmed us up. Today, it’s Badminton in the hall. Will we be able to do backhand? Hope so.

Enjoy the weekend everyone!
