What we've been doing this week
In Literacy, we have been looking at and writing winter poems- look out for them on our winter display soon!
In Mission we have been researching the life of Charles Darwin and his theory of evolution. The children have also made a start making some fossils of their own.
In mission maths the children have been looking at the properties of 3D shapes and problem solving using nets. They've even made some 3D sculptures outside of the classroom.
During Literacy the children have started reading descriptions and unpicking the language used to paint a vivid picture in the readers mind. Watch this space for our own amazing descriptions next week.
In Mission the children have been finding out which countries produce what food, when it is harvested and how it is harvested. We couldn't believe how far some of our food has traveled.
On Friday, the children had the opportunity to work with a French teacher from Snaith High School- they sang songs, played games and had a vocabulary shoot out!
