In English, we have been busy writing a diary entry in the role of the Robot. We decided that staying on the rusting scrapheap was a lonely experience and wanted to make our feelings heard. We then peer-assessed these using our rubrics. The children did really well with this as we haven’t had much experience of doing this.
As we read further into the story we found out that the Bluebird had trouble deciding if she should continue. We performed a conscience alley activity to showcase our opinions. Next week we will be writing a letter of persuasion to the Bluebird before moving onto learning the features of a narrative.
In Maths, we have been learning to draw our own numberlines to help with addition and subtraction number sentences. We found this a little tricky and used lots of resilience to help us keep going.
In History, we used our knowledge of timelines to order the events. While in Geography we located the 4 countries within the UK and named their capital cities.
In Science, we worked with Mr Lally to order the stretchiness of different materials.
In Art, we have been using our knowledge of collage to created artwork for our display. Next week we will be moving onto creating a piece of artwork linked with our topic.
