We have done an art project this week in the afternoons. We started by going outside and creating observational drawings or flowers and plants. We then got a variety of leaves and created a leaf print background. After we made sure our observational drawing had lots of detail on, cut it out and stuck it on our backgrounds. The children took so much care with these pictures and they look great. Here are some pictures of the children creating their pictures.
On Thursday afternoon we went into the café and explored different ways of using vegetables so we made dips and sticks. We made a guacamole, pea pâté and Tzatziki. The children then made carrot, cucumber and pepper sticks to dip. All the children tried them and guacamole came out as the favourite.
We have had a very exciting morning in 3RK. This week we have been focusing on play scripts in English and volume in Maths. So this morning the children acted out their play scripts they had written which when all put together created the story of George’s Marvellous Medicine. In Maths the children used their knowledge of volume to create a marvellous medicine of their own.
On Thursday afternoon we invited Maecare in for a coffee afternoon. This was for our value of service. It was such a lovely afternoon and the children were fantastic.
We have been lucky this week to have 2 visitors. On Wednesday morning Floyd the corn snake came to see us! Ryan’s dad brought him in. He told us that Floyd is 8 months old and how we can look after snakes, we then got to touch Floyd he felt very smooth.
This morning we had a visit from Winnie the pug. Winnie and her owner are from dogs trust and she talked to us all about how to care for dogs and also how to stay safe if we are approached by dogs.
This week we have been focusing on poetry. We have been reading George’s Marvellous Medicine. In the book George put lots of interesting ingredients in the pan and says poems. We learnt one of the poems and performed it for the class. After that we wrote our own poems using onomatopoeia, here are some examples.
This week we have been researching all about Roald Dahl. He had such a fascinating life. After researching about him and spending some time planning the children Wrote biographies about Roald Dahl. Here are 3 superstar pieces.
On Monday in collective worship Mrs Johnston talked to us about community and what it means. She then described the ingredients and recipe she would need to make her favourite cake. We then had to go away and think about what ingredients and recipe we would need to create a happy and safe Allerton community. This is the fantastic and thoughtful recipe we came up with.
Have a look at the pictures below, can you find Wally bear?
On Monday we had a nice start to the week looking at time conjunctions in English. On Tuesday we read a little more of the Ice palace and started to put together a detailed story map of the story so far. It was a really good way of remembering the key points of the story. On Wednesday it was so nice and snowy we couldn’t resist going and playing in the snow. We set ourselves a challenge – could we build a shelter out of the snow like Ivan did? It was very tricky but good fun! Have a look at the blog below for the pictures of us building. Today we have read some more of Ice Palace, it’s getting a little scary now! Then we answered some questions on the text.
On Tuesday we spent the afternoon becoming mountain explorers. We watched plant earth – mountains with David Attenborough. The children made some fantastic notes which we can use in our topic. On Wednesday afternoon we started our new music topic, playing the glockenspiels. The children were really good at following the tune and finding the pulse. This afternoon we carried on looking at our lent challenge.
I have sent our new homework and spellings. As it is Fairtrade fortnight, homework is a Fairtrade poster. They will have to look at what Fairtrade is then create a poster. If they do not have access to the internet they can ask to do it at some point in school next week.
Where’s Wally has been rearranged for Tuesday 6th March.
