In English, children worked on their poetry skills further. We reviewed the poetic devices of similes, metaphors, alliteration and onomatopoeia. They then wrote an emotive poem about a classification of animals (birds, fish, amphibians, reptiles and mammals). They have started to type these up using a word processor and they will add detail to them next week! Children also improved their skills using a dictionary and a thesaurus and discussed the moral dilemma of 'being different'.
Our topic has progressed well and children have now learned the names of the types of teeth, along with how many teeth adults can have. We have set up our liquids experiment where we're going to see what happens to egg shells when they are submerged in different liquids. The liquids we're testing are: coffee, energy drink, water, juice drink, sugar-free juice drink and milk. We'll take some pictures and report back next week with our findings!
Top Spellers this week were: Eve A, James, Logan, Ajay, Alanah, Rhys, Eve H, Ellie, Daniel and Jasmine. Great spelling! +2 HPs each!
Spellings for next week: using apostrophes to show singular and plural possession.
Singular possession - Gary's house is over there. (one house, it's Gary's)
Plural possession - The dogs' collars are expensive. (more than one collar, more than one dog)
The Good Work Award, Good Behaviour Award and Class DOJO winner will all be carried over to next week.
This Friday we had the privilege of having a GB Olympian visit our school! Chris Tomlinson, GB Olympic long jumper, was in school to put our students through a series of physical tests. Children did star jumps, spotty dogs, leg drives and push-ups. I must say, out class did excellent. Children found it tough, but most stuck with it right until the whistle! Check out these pictures of us having fun and getting some exercise!
Have a great weekend everyone!
