This week in English the children have been writing their own adventure stories; I have been really impressed with their determination to keep going with this longer piece of writing and I am looking forward to reading the finished pieces!
In RE with Mrs Gold, the children came up with questions they would like to ask Noah. They then took turns to take the hot seat and answer them, proving their knowledge of the story from the last few weeks and using their imagination!
On Thursday it was National Poetry Day, to celebrate this we wrote acrostic poems based on the theme of Autumn. We started off by thinking of changes that happen in Autumn, colours we see outside and events that happen during this time. The children then had a go at writing their poems, and once they had finished they wrote them out neatly and illustrated them. I was really impressed with the finished products and how determined the children were to rise to the challenge of using similes!
Unfortunately, Mrs Robertson, our violin and cello teacher, was unable to do the lesson this Friday so we haven’t been able to give the children their instruments to take home. Hopefully she will be with us next week and we can allocate the instruments to the children. All children were given a permission form this week, please return this to me or the office if you would like your child to practise their instrument at home.
This week’s spellings have been set on Spelling Shed; we will have a short test on Tuesday.
Words with endings that sound like /ze/, as in measure, are always spelled with ‘-sure’:
English - Autumn Poems
RE - Questions to ask Noah
