Parent Open Afternoon has changed from Monday 1st July to Monday 8th July, this is due to Active Week

W/C 26/11/18

We have started looking at a Poetry this week and have been introduced to the American poet Robert  Frost. He wrote a beautiful Winter poem called, 'Stopping By The Woods on a Snowy Evening'.
We have been looking at how his poem was written and listened to it read, we have produced our own story maps to represent the ideas in the poem and have written some poems ourselves. Some of them were extremely good, even though we haven't been taught the poetry writing unit yet so we are very excited to see how our own Winter Poems will look after two weeks of study.
 
Have a look at the story maps we designed and see if you can link the symbols shown to the verses of Robert Frost's poem. (See link to the right)
 
We have started a new topic in Maths too and have been studying 3D shapes. We looked at different types of shapes and their features. We knew many of their names already. We tried making our own nets for these shapes with some mixed results!
 
We looked at a variety of nets that had already been designed. We tried to guess what kinds of shapes they might be. When we put the nets together we were surprised by the shapes they became. 
 
It took some of us quite a long time to create the shapes and lots of patience. We realised very quickly that if were not accurate in our folding or cutting, the shape would not come together quite as well as it should.
