We had lots of fun and did lots of learning during 'Book Week'.
We are illustrators
We spent a morning creating characters and thinking about what they may sound like and what type of personality they had. We worked as illustrators to create their image and then put them into a comic strip or story board.
Book Week Parade
We enjoyed the book week parade where we got to see the different book characters that the children and staff came as for world book day and we got to see a great performance from some of the staff who were dressed up as character from 'Alice in wonderland'. The performance we fun as it was interactive.
Miss Hurt was assigned to our class and she read us a lovely story about an old woman, called Mrs Barker, who invited a girl called Molly to her house for tea... Chamomile tea! It was nice to have an adult reading to us, always a great experience.
Where's Wally Hunt
Over the course of book week, some teachers hid several Wally figures around school for us to find. It was a fun activity and I'm sure Wally figures will still be found in weeks to come.
In Maths this week, we have been multiplying fractions by whole numbers and thinking about how we could record these using visual representations and written calculations. We considered how effective our methods were for solving problems and we also recapped on converting mixed fractions to improper fractions. We then used all that we knew and had learned to help us solve problems involving multiplying fractions in a range of contexts.
We had the exciting experience of sharing all of our interesting learning with the school and our parents. We shared learning from the beginning of the Spring term. We split into groups and spent time preparing our sections of the assembly. We had to think about our scrips and what we would display on our section of the powerpoint. We rose to the challenge of creating our own assembly and enjoyed putting ourselves in our teacher's shoes.
