Dahl Class have been using the power of sentence strolling to up-level some spooky sentences. Mrs Holland gave us a really boring sentence and then we worked in groups to think of different adjectives and alternative words for parts of the sentences. The next lesson we were able to use the examples from the working wall to magpie ideas and use them in our writing with some stunning results.
Great work Dahl class!
Dahl class have made a great start back to school and have really impressed us with their positive attitude and approach to learning.
In literacy we have been focusing on Horrid Henry stories and have been thinking about how an author creates atmosphere in their stories. We have used lots of drama conventions to help us explore character feelings, emotions and predictions about what what might happen in a story.
In maths we have been looking at number sequences and used a range of resources to look for patterns in the numbers. We have also looked at logic problems and the children were fantastic at reading the clues carefully and working collaboratively to solve them. They could then write their own based on what they had learnt.
Keep up the good work Dahl!
It’s great to have you back
This morning year 3 took a trip to Tesco to recycle lots of rubbish they had brought in. We had to think carefully about what our rubbish was made of to make sure we put it in the right bin.
After talking to some girls and receiving some letters from children in year 3, Mr Rees came to visit us to talk about how to make our dent in the universe.
First we find a problem, then we imagine a solution. Once we do this we can actually solve the problem. We need to make a plan and take our first steps!
