In English we have been working hard on a 5 part warning story. We listened to an exemplar story written by Pie Corbett and then we planned our own, using some of his ideas. Please read below for some of our lines. We tried to vary our openers, add noun phrases and included figurative language like similes.
At that very moment, a storm raged. Rain patterned down on the soggy, wet floor, which was as hard as a rock. I knew this would happen because it had been brewing all morning.
When they were playing tag, they both ran at full speed like jaguars. They raced around the cracked slide, turned sharp corners and shot like bullets through the old, metal obstacle course.
And then a fire started, but it was quickly putout because of the rain. Suddenly the car and caravan started to move extremely fast. Ethan could see Simon's face, it was as pale as a fish.
The two terrified girls had heard a growling sound from the bushes. They got out of the long, abandoned car. All was silent.
Inside the giant scary tomb, they could smell stinky food, hear ghastly haunted ghosts but they could see light at the end of the tomb.
Golden, brown hay, white, stone walls , clear, glass windows and a few plants scattered around the place. Amber spotted a horse. It was sort of caramel colour with a soft chocolate mane and beautiful toffee hooves.
Suddenly, they spotted a glint of silver on the floor. Cautiously, they approached it, they did it slowly because they weren't sure that it wasn't an animal's teeth. To their delight, it was two torches!
In Maths we have worked hard on learning about statistics- tables, bar graphs and pictograms. We were able to make tally charts, answer questions from graphs and draw bar graphs and pictograms of our own.
In Computing we continued to look at how to present our work and learnt how to create a PowerPoint. By the end of the unit we were able to add new slides, add fancy transitions, add text, change fonts, add pictures and text boxes and change backgrounds. We decided to set this as the children's homework for half term. Please see below.
