Welcome to Eagles!
During English this week, we took part in an inference lesson and decided what character would 'fit the shoe'. We discussed various creative possibilities and used some amazing vocabulary to describe the owner of the shoe.
Eagles' also carried out some assessments this week. They worked extremely hard and demonstrated our school value of resilience. Well done! The children had lots of fun on Friday, celebrating their hard work during our SATs party.
This week we have created some amazing artwork as part of our topic - The Iron Man. We focused very hard on developing our techniques when painting, sketching and shading.
At the start of our Summer Term, we took part in an assembly led by the poet Ian Bland. He performed some of his amazing poems and shared his passion for poetry with us. The Year 3 and 4 children also participated in a workshop led by Ian. During the workshops we learnt about different poems such as a kenning and wrote and performed our own! This week, some of us performed our fantastic poems in front of a huge audience during the TarDis (Tarleton and Rural District Schools) Year 3/4 Festival of Poetry held at our school.
This week we became BBC News Reporters! In History, we reported breaking news about Skara Brae (a Stone Age Village). We discussed a range of facts that included the location, materials and changes over time. Well done presenters!
This week we have been learning about different measures in Maths. We focused on mass when measuring objects using various scales (g and kg). We had lots of fun creating our own mocktails when looking at volume and capacity (ml and l). We even got to write on the tables when learning about perimeter and length (cm and m)! Everybody has worked very hard this week and demonstrated our Christian Value of resilience. Well done!
This week we held a Medieval banquet as part of our topic unit (The Art of Food). We learnt all about the Medieval ceremonies including the food they ate. We then compared this to our own diet, creating a list of all the similarities and differences. In preparation for our banquet, we created a range of utensils to use including a drum for the procession. As it was a beautiful day, we held our Medieval banquet outside and had lots of fun dancing and eating (minus the Eel Broth)!
This week we have looked at a range of different books and texts including Wonder by R.J. Palacio and Journey by Aaron Becker. We have worked very hard exploring the different characters, feelings and plots. The book 'Journey' is a wordless picture book and we participated in fantastic discussions to create our own text for the pictures. On Friday, we dressed up for World Book Day and had lots of fun discussing our AMAZING costumes and characters!
