Star of the Week

This weeks 'star of the week' is Edith.

Edith, you are so hard working and you are always ready to learn. We have been really impressed with your contribution in English this term. You had some fantastic ideas about why the girl was holding her red crayon and the objects she would draw with it. You are a kind and caring member of Hazel class who is always smiling and always willing to help out. You are a superstar, well done!

Today in English the children wrote a description of the object they would draw with the red crayon to stop them falling from the edge of the aqueduct. We then found out what the girl in the story drew!

It was a red hot air balloon!

In Art the children used sponges to create a cloud effect for the background and then used a red crayon to draw a hot air balloon. These will be added to our class display which is telling the journey.

The story was left on a cliffhanger on Tuesday!

 

 

 

 

Today the children have used mime to draw the object they think would save them from tumbling down off the aquaduct. They had a go sitting in the boat at the edge to help them imagine how they might feel and inspire them about the object they might draw.

 

The children had some fabulous ideas ranging from a trampoline, a cat (because they land on their feet!), a unicorn and a hot air balloon. 

Because we have come back to school at the tail end of the term, we are doing something different with the children.  We are looking at an animation of a book called Journey and showing it to the children bit by bit, getting them to predict what will happen and then watching to see if our predictions were correct.  The children are coming out with amazing thoughts!  We got as far as a castle in the book, so today the children made 2D and 3D castles.

Getting a bird's eye view!

The children have been learning about aerial views in Geography, so we had a look at the drone footage that was taken of our school and then the children imagined they were in the basket of a hot air balloon looking over the jungle and they had to identify the animals they could see below!
