This week in Windrush Class we have come to the end of our sentence stacking lessons for our explanation text, ‘How does a robot dog work?’. On Friday, we started the first step towards planning our own explanations texts; we designed and drew our own robot pet and started to think about its features and functions. I was really impressed with the range of creative ideas!
In our PE lessons this week we completed our second inter-house competition of the year. This time we focused on basketball skills; we spent our lesson on Tuesday getting used to passing and dribbling the basketballs. On Thursday we played games in our teams and everyone worked really hard trying to score points for their houses!
In our History lessons for the past two week we have been learning about life in the Bronze age. We have thought about how the Bronze Age compared to the Stone Age, how things improved and became more advanced. We have also learnt about the Bell Beakers that were made during this time period; on Tuesday we designed our own patterns which we will be using when we have a go at making our own Bell Beakers in a couple of weeks.
We have also enjoyed celebrating Children in Need this week. In particular, we have had lots of fun doing the Strictly Come Dancing Children in Need challenges as well as watching the Five to Thrive videos that Children in Need have filmed with Joe Wicks!
