Last Week we started some work on poetry.
We have been looking at a poem called 'The Cave of Curiosity' by Mel and Pie Corbett.
One of the lessons we worked hard on was to perform the poem using a variety of percussion instruments. We focused on our individual and team performance; how we used the instruments to create an eerie atmosphere and how the audience enjoyed our performance.
We really enjoyable the English lesson.
Term 3 and 4
In Term 3 and 4 we looked at Romans and Vikings. As part of this unit, we went on an exciting trip to Caerleon Roman Fortress in Wales. We had a great day discovering new things about Roman life and how Roman soldiers lived in Britain and the types of things they had to endure. This including living arrangements, gladiator fighting and sickness. As you can see from the images, we had an opportunity to look at some fantastic artefacts.
Term 1 and 2
You Can make a Difference.
Our first topic of the year was “You can make a difference’. We worked alongside the year 3's and had a great wow day where we made models out of junk, sorted rubbish into the correct recycling bins, did a rubbish survey and recycled water bottles into calming glitter bottles that looked like the sea.
In this topic we did some great art work based on the animal paintings of Petr Horáček. We also learnt about the problems of plastic pollution and how we can all make a difference for example by not using plastic straws. It was fantastic to see the children so involved in environmental issues.
