World Book Day/Shakespeare Day
In Class 4, we had a brilliant day focusing on the Shakespeare play of Macbeth. Please look at our pictures and enjoy our videos acting out the opening scene with the witches in Macbeth. The children only had 10 minutes to practise their scenes, so I think they have done very well!
Zoom with a Local Farm
Linked to our WW2 topic and Mathematics we have had a Zoom session this week and last week with a local farm. During these sessions we have looked at how live on a farm would have been different during WW2 and now. Mrs Ellis, Mr Ellis and their son Tom Ellis, have also set the children challenges to complete - this week the children had to create a graph showing the growth of a calf. They also set us a maths challenge - this is currently a work in progress!

Displays In Class
In RE we have been looking at the 99 names of Allah in the Islamic religion. The children were all given a name each to writing in Arabic - they did this in a white pastel and then create resistance art by painting over it in water colours. The children then explained why the word given might be used to describe a God.

Today we had the pleasure of meeting the artist Katie Lalji(via Zoom), who paints jute bags for a living. In class we are creating a large painting of a WW2 soldier (watch this space) using acrylic paints; Katie paints all of her bags with acrylics, so she was able to give us some excellent advice and tips for working with this type of paint!
We have moved our descriptive writing on to focus on the following music video:
This is also linked to our topic of WW2, we can't wait to share some of our writing with you!
