This week in English we read a story called Jack and the Beanstalk. We used actions and pictures to tell the story. (Rhys)

Rebecca liked using the actions to tell the story, Rebecca likes the action for when Jack climbs the beanstalk.

Ithalia liked doing the actions too, she likes when the Giantess gives Jack some breakfast.

Imogen enjoyed writing the story of Jack and the Beanstalk on Friday!

Sophia liked using the story map because it helped her remember the important for her story writing.

Ollie likes Jack and the Beanstalk because the giant is funny!



In Maths we have been learning about 3D and 2d shapes, we looked for 2D shapes in our classroom and outside (Ikechi). We also used straws and playdough to make 3D shapes.



In Art we sketched Stone Wall Castles and we also learnt about the different parts of a castle.

One part of a castle is a metal gate called a portcullis.

Another part is called a drawbridge, you can pull it up using chains to stop enemies getting in!

In Science we made a castle wall using multi-link and we threw different materials to test which one was the strongest.

Today it is Miss Ely’s birthday!
