Star of the Week
This weeks star of the week is Ava.
You have had a fabulous week. In English you were able to accurately sequence the movements of the children in our story Quest using time connectives. Your handwriting is becoming more refined each day. You are a kind and friendly member of Hazel class and we are delighted to see you speaking with increased confidence during class discussions. Well done Ava!
Here are this weeks spellings. Our spelling quiz will be next Friday.
In English we are continuing with our wordless picture book Quest by Aaron Becker. This is the second book in his trilogy about a young girl who seeks the attention of her busy family and instead discovers a fantastic world on the other side of her bedroom wall. In Quest so far, the magic continues when the girl and her new friend are surprised by the appearance of a deposed king bearing an orange crayon, a holster with five empty spaces, and a map.
The children have quickly discerned that to save the king, the girl and boy must find the missing crayons!! This has stirred their amazing imaginations and created much excitement. Today the children had a variety of illustrations from the story so far and wrote thought bubbles for these.
For our last DT lesson of the year the children have made sweet and savoury kebabs. They have used knives carefully to cut fruit and vegetable into pieces and then pushed a skewer through them. We put all the left over fruit together in a bowl to enjoy as a fruit salad the next day, and all the leftover vegetables went to the chickens!
This week in Computing the children have learned how to access an ebook. In order to access the book they let the cursor hover over a hyperlink. The cursor turns into a hand and they know they need to click on the hand and this takes them to a new page. The children had the choice of listening to or reading the story. Most of them chose to listen.
In Geography we looked at Google Earth to find Elham, then we whizzed all the way round the world to find Makara in New Zealand. We tried to learn and name the continents by using a big carpet map and a globe and school atlases.
