Week 4Week 4:
This week we have been reading the book 'Where the poppies now grow' in English, which is a poetic story about two friends who join the army in WW1 and we are taken through the war with their friendship. It taught us about Remembrance and made us think about questions we might have for soldiers from the time.
We have written letters to the 'Unknown Soldier' whose statue stands outside Winchester Cathedral and look forward to sharing these with you in our class assembly next Friday (5th October). In addition, we each made a poppy and created a class wreath, that will be taken to Winchester Cathedral when Year 5 visit next month.
We were also lucky this week to have a visit from the Hampshire Fire Service, who told us about testing our home smoke alarms, fire safety and being careful on the roads with our mobile phones and traffic. It was really interesting and surprising to hear some of the information and we talked about ways that we can keep ourselves and our families safe.
Week 1 and 2:
For the last couple of weeks we have been settling into Owl class and getting familiar with our classroom routines.
It has been nice to get to know our classmates as well as doing lots of learning!
Our focus in English has been biographies and we've learnt a lot about Michael Morpurgo and Philip Pullman's lives. On Thursday 13th September we celebrated Roald Dahl day and wrote fictional biographies for his characters.
In Maths, we've been exploring place value and how we can represent numbers as Roman numerals. Our new learning wall is really useful to show our class' mathematical learning journey.
We are looking forward to showing you all of our learning in our class assembly (the first class of the year!).
