Gangster Granny and Harvest

Yesterday we all went to the Wyvern theatre to see Gangster Granny. It was fantastic, everyone really enjoyed it. Especially Mrs Chapman, who laughed and then cried and even danced at the end!image image image

Thank you to Logan and Skye and Mattie’s mummies for coming to help.

Today was our Harvest and Welcome Service. This was themed around ‘Our Wonderful World’. We were asked to think about the tree and changing seasons.

We printed the leaves on our trees; thinking about how the colours would change throughout the year. We also read and acted out ( text mapped) a poem called ‘Summers Coming To An End’ by Jaymie Gerard.

Katelyn, Molly, Ollie and Alfie read our prayer. Well done everyone.

Don’t forget:

Our trip to the Roman Baths on Wednesday 5th October

Spellings on Monday, maths homework for Tuesday (shape) and English for Wednesday (Boudicca).

We also have Miss Elsden joining Lime Class, from Bath Spa University, until the end of January.

Have a lovely weekend.

 

 

Week Three

Monday -we had our first spelling lessons.

Mrs Chapman’s group are looking at words ending in ‘sure’. Every class has a Spelling Tree which has all of the patterns the different groups are looking at.

In topic we have been investigating the ‘Boudicca Rebellion’. We watched video clips, listened to audio clips and then took on the role of different characters involved.

We have also started to decorate our Roman shields.

In English we are really enjoying ‘talk for writing’, if you ask any one of us we can recite the beginning of a newspaper report about the legend of Romulus and Remus.

Land here are some of our actions…

Roald Dahl 100 Day

Today would have been Roald Dahl’s 100th Birthday and to celebrate this every class chose one of his stories to look at – Lime chose The BFG.

We all looked wonderful in our costumes.image

This morning we all wrote character descriptions thinking about how our appearances do not always reflect our personalities. Sometimes scary giants can be wonderfully kind.image image

This afternoon we watched clips of Sophie and the BFG talking about and catching dreams and then made our own dream jars. We had some fantastic ideas.

We have also read half of the story as our class book and now we can’t wait to finish it.

We shared our work with the rest of the school at the end of the today.

RE Day. ‘Joseph’

Today was RE story day at Woodborough School and Lime Class’s story was ‘Joseph’. We read several versions or the story and watched some clips of Joesph and his Technicoloured Dream Coat. We then made our own story books.imageimage

We then planned and made props for our drama story telling, which we shared with the rest of the school at the end of the day.

Day Four

We are all settling in well and really enjoying our topic and art work. We have a Roman soldier costume, which looks amazing but is extremely heavy!

We have started to design our Roman shields. Please could I ask parents to save large cereal boxes so that we can make them.

 

We have also chosen our reading award books – this term the theme is, An author study, David Walliams and Roald Dahl. Remember that you need to read four books for a bronze award, six for the silver and eight for the gold.  We also want to remind everyone that it is Roald Dahl day next Tuesday (13.9.16) and we are dressing up as Roald Dahl characters. Lime class are going to be focusing on The B F G. We have started reading it as our class book and we are enjoying it immensely.

 

Our first day in Lime

image We had a very busy day getting to know our new classroom. image image image

We tried some ERIC activities (guided reading) and place value games (maths) this morning. This afternoon we had our first look at the Romans. We looked at timelines and thought about possible answers to-

Why did the Romans invade Britain?

We have also talked about important things to remember though out the week and put these in our homework diaries. For example, our PE days are Tuesday and Thursday and we must remember spelling books on Mondays and to hand in maths and English homework on Tuesday and Wednesday respectively.

Well done everyone.
