What a week! To help us to really get inside the characters of our Greek myths, we made mythical monster masks, just like the ones used in ancient Greek theatre. They were pretty scary, but they really helped. We then wrote our wonderful myths, making sure we included fronted adverbials and expanded noun phrases, and worked on editing and improving them. Mrs Bishop had a great time reading her favourite type of story! In handwriting we practiced letters that don't join.
In maths, we had a look at decimals and how they relate to fractions, we also did very well at ordering them. We also practiced our division in arithmetic.
Science was all about how our ears receive sound and how vibrations are important in this process. We made presentations for the rest of the class as if we were in a television show about sound.
In RE this week we learnt about Pesach, the Jewish feast of Passover. We were very interested in the sorts of things eaten and what they represent to Jewish people.
We finished our wonderful topic about Kings and Queens by focusing on Charles I and Cromwell, and then skipping forward in time to learn about Queen Victoria. We also made delicious Tudor biscuits, and fed them to everyone at topic celebration. Our celebration was to make board games, focusing on the best facts we had learnt about Kings and Queens. We look forward to using them during wet play!
