Today was Italy Day. We celebrated all things Italian. We started the day by making our delicious bagel pizzas. There wasn’t a scrap left after we had a chance to eat them! We learnt a little bit of the Italian language and wrote how to say our names, age and our favourite colour. In the afternoon, we did our maths fractions work through making a fraction pizza and ended the day by making some beautiful stained glass windows inspired by the Florence Duomo. Thank you to all of the boys and girls for dressing in their Italian colours. We had a great day!
We have been newspaper reporters for the past two weeks. We have written a story all about Brunelleschi building the dome for the Duomo in Florence. Here are some beautiful examples of the hard work 3M have put in.
We have been exploring magnetic force and how it is attracted to certain materials. We made our paperclips dance on different objects and also explored which objects are magnetic and which are not.
We worked together in our table groups to create our own city. We thought about the human and physical features as we were building them. We also discussed what we thought were the most important things in a city and why.
We were very lucky to have Mrs Elijah in to celebrate Judaism week. She spoke to us all about Shabbat and told us about the usual Friday routine and the different traditions that they have.
No Pens Day
We have had a busy and very exciting No Pens Day! We started the day with creating a painting of the Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore using the pointillism technique. Next, we had the task of ‘how long could you make a piece of paper?’ We had to see which group could make the longest strip using 2 sheets of paper and we were only allowed to use scissors and glue.
We also learnt some greetings in British sign language and also the alphabet. After lunch we had the much anticipated debate. Our topic was ‘Computer games are good for you’ and we were the opposition. Our debate speakers did us very proud and we really enjoyed watching it! Finally, we made an advert for Milton Keynes, showing how many brilliant fun activities there are to do and used our persuasive techniques from our English lessons.
We have spent the last month working very hard on our sewing skills. We learnt how to do a running stitch, a blanket stitch and even how to sew on a button!
European Day of Languages
We celebrated European Day of Languages by thinking of all the different languages we can speak in our class. We made and wore our badges to share our culture with everyone. We were also very lucky to have Mrs Guina teaching us some German in the afternoon.
We listened to a beautiful poem about God’s creation, our planet. We thought about what we are thankful for and painted a picture of our home.
Today we learnt about mysterious Stonehenge. We wondered about how it was built, what it was used for and what it tells us about the past. After we found out some interesting facts, we had a go at making our own models using clay.
Today, we used our collaging skills to make our own caveman. Some of our cavemen were looking very stylish in their animal prints!
Today we had our Big Dig! We dug through the mud to find some very special artefacts. We discussed what we think these artefacts were used for in The Stone Age.
