Summer 1

Last half term flew by and I can safely say we have had a great time, we really enjoyed learning about Volcanoes and Pompeii. We have learnt so much about volcanoes- why they erupt, how they erupt and where they are located. We have also kept a close eye on Mount Kilauea in Hawaii, as it is has been erupting for the last month. We have been working hard in Maths, especially learning how many days are in each month. In English we used all of our knowledge from the text Escape to Pompeii to write a diary entry. Which was your favourite part of last half term and why? My favourite part was learning so much about volcanoes and how to survive in a volcanic eruption.

This week

This week we have used our printing blocks in Art to make our final design. We have been learning how many days the different months of the year have. We also learnt how to say different foods in French. On Friday it was Sepsis day, so we dressed up in bright colours.

Beware a robot


KP had made a robot at home and he brought it in to show us. He had built it himself with some help from his dad. His name was Mecco. He was amazing, he could sing, dance, shake hands and even tell jokes. We were all amazed at what he could do. Well done KP!

What are you reading?

I have recently finished Gangsta Granny by David Walliams – which was a fantastic book, so have chosen to read another one his books. I have decided to read Mr Stink.

It all starts when Chloe makes friends with Mr Stink, the local tramp. Yes, he smells a bit. But when it looks like he might be driven out of town, Chloe decides to hide him in the garden shed.

Now Chloe’s got to make sure no one finds out her secret. And speaking of secrets, there just might be more to Mr Stink than meets the eye… or the nose.

Has anyone read this book? If so, did you enjoy it? Which was your favourite part? What mark out of 10 would you give it?

Looking back…

Happy Easter everyone! We have just finished a really busy term and you have worked extremely hard. Here are a few things that we did last term:

  • In English, we continued to read the Egyptian Cinderella and then re wrote the end part of the story.
  • In Maths, we have been looking at fractions, angles and drawing shapes including right angled triangles.
  • In Science, we have been looking at the functions of the main part of the plant. We also planned and carried out an investigation to see if the roots absorb water. We placed sticks of celery in water that contained food colouring to see what would happen.
  • In History, we looked at the gods that the Ancient Egyptians worshipped and we also looked at the mummification process in detail. We even wrote some instructions on how to mummify a body.
  • We have also been trying really hard with our presentation and have tried to replicate our gold standard in all of our books.

I am already looking forward to the next term
