Reading buddies

Year 1 and Year 4 read together.

On World Book Day Class 16 met and read with our reading buddies from year 4 in Class 19. Today we met with them again and shared books together. It was great to hear lots of fabulous reading and enjoyment.

This week some of children have been making a 3D castle for their learning log work. They have been showing them to the rest of  class 3 and telling us how they made them.

Well done, they are fantastic!

Making a castle


We began to introduce our topic today by thinking about castles and specifically knights. We each made our very own crest which would go on our shield, helmet and maybe even our horse if we were a knight. We worked hard to make sure that they were all individual and different so that we couldn’t be mistaken for someone else.

Tomorrow we will make a class crest and a huge standard to hang it on ready for our dress up day on Monday!

The Polar Express

We have loved thinking about the story of  the Polar Express story over the last few weeks.

We went on our own train ride and even got to taste hot chocolate. We looked at what we might say on the train and thought about what the chocolate tasted like.

We went on a journey to the North Pole and wrote some amazing descriptions about all of the places that we saw.

Nursery Rhyme Week

Today’s nursery rhyme is Hickory Dickory Dock. We started by exploring the song.

After exploring the nursery rhyme we had a think about telling the time and most of us can now tell the time to o clock.

We have also written about a typical school today using time words such as first, next last and after.
