We have wolf poems based on our work on Romulus and Remus.
As dark as the midnight sky, her eyes gleamed,
Exhausted, she lay on the snow covered ground,
By the rushing river, hidden in grass she sat,
Dampening her warm fur, the spray from the river made rainbows,
Although she was hungry, she kept silent and still.
We drew wolf pictures to go with our poems.
Today, Year 5, were excited to meet Dave Heyhoe. After writing remembrance poems for his dog, Treo, and attaching them to his memorial, Dave wanted to meet the children. We loved hearing all his stories and how wonderful Treo was. We were told about how he was trained with a tennis ball and a rubber duck, as well how he helped in the war in Afghanistan. Some of us are reading Dave’s book “All about Treo”. It was so interesting to listen to their experiences and how they saved many lives. Treo was honored by receiving the Dickin Medal, which is the highest award any animal can receive whilst serving in the military.
In Reception this week we have had Mrs Barnes with us in our class to do some baking.
Each group of children made a chocolate cornflake cake.
The children observed the changes of the chocolate when it got hot and melted.
The used their gross motor skills to mix the chocolate and cornflakes together by stirring.
Then the children had to use their hand and eye co ordination to spoon the mixture into the cases.
On Wednesday night the Year 5/6 cross country team ran brilliantly around the Eaton Bank course. Well done to all of you!
Group 1 had their first session with Mrs Guildford where we began to make spitfires. Don’t they already look fab?
Yesterday, we all worked together to write instructions to make our very own Hoctopize from our current focus text ‘Toys in Space’.
We thought carefully about what we needed and wrote the items in a list. The, we ordered the steps involved in making an alien. Each child contributed to the written piece and helped each other edit the piece… great work Year One!
