I really like English it's really fun because Miss Hill makes lessons fun!
In P.E, we did different types of cricket with Mr Alexander. It was so FUN but there was only 9 of us in one lesson because everybody else was bell boating so we got a lot done and we nearly got to self coach (AWESOME) . It was really hot.

It has been the first week back after half term and it has been a very busy week!
In English this week we have started to look at play scripts. We have been acting out some scripts, and picking out the different features that they have in them.
In Maths we have been learning about 2D and 3D shapes. We have learnt what right angles, acute angles, obtuse angles and reflex angles are, and have been finding these in shapes.
We played a game where we had to guess the shape by only asking questions with a yes or no answer.
We have been spending some of our afternoons this week rehearsing for the school performance. We are starting to learn the songs with class 2 as well, ready for our performance to parents at the end of term.
We have been talking about British Values this week and have been looking at what democracy is.
We learnt about all the parties running in the general election and we even came up with our own parties and manifestos! We made a prediction as a class about who would win in the general election. We found out on Friday that we were nearly right!

In English, we have been creating our own instructions for bell boating. We had to include the equipment, safety advice, top tips and at least 6 different steps. Here are some pictures of our work:
In maths this week we have been finding the missing lengths of shapes when we know the area and perimeter. We also learnt about capacity, volume and mass. We made estimates of how much water is in a container and of how much different objects weigh.
In topic this week we have made top trumps cards about different rivers in the world. We have been comparing the lengths of rivers and finding out different fats about them.
On Tuesday, the worship committee performed The Unforgiving Steward. They acted it out and we discussed the morals of the story.

We played some cricket on Monday.There were two groups , The Batters and Fielders.
Each group would swap over and take turns earning points for our team. it was a tie until group 1 won the game but we both agreed that both teams persevered and tried their best.
On Tuesday, we performed the poems that we wrote last week. After we performed them, Miss Hill evaluated them and told us what she thought about it. Now we are looking at Instructions and Imperative verbs.
In Maths, we have been learning about area and perimeter of shapes. We learnt that to find the perimeter you have to measure and add up all the sides. For area, you multiply the length and width.
We found the area and perimeter of objects around the classroom.
In P.E, we did jumping from leg to leg to train for the long jump because we have been looking at mini Olympics.
So far, we've done: jumping over things,
, running long jumps , hopping over things.

Our focus this week in English has been writing our own poems based on the poems of Benjamin Zephaniah such as 'I Love Me Mother' and we have done some versions such as:
I love me father
I love me five kittens
I love me hog
I love me brother
and many more.
We have also based some poems on a poem called 'This is football '
our versions were:
This is Minecraft
This is racing
and of course many more.
I think we have all enjoyed our poem writing this week.
In maths this week our focus was mostly on time: we have been reading analogue and digital times.
In digital time we have been converting 24 hour and 12 hour times e.g.(18:00-6:00 pm).
looking at times was very fascinating and we have been applying this to different types of timetables.
Here is an example :
On Thursday we went Bell boating! We learnt how to hold our oars properly and even met the inventor of the Bell boat: David Train. We had a great time and even went into a lock and saw the water rise and fall! Here are some pictures of us in the lock:
