Christmas Crafts 2020- THANKS APPA!

We were so excited last week when Miss Beverley gave us our reception buddies. We created Christmas cards for them and read a Christmas story to them via Teams.

We worked on our editing and redrafting in English when we wrote a newspaper and an informal letter based on the events in our class novel: The Boy in the Tower

DT- designing and making a shelter to protect the people of Camberwell (Boy in the Tower). When designing, we thought about things like how the shelter needed to protect the citizens from the spores and the bluchers and how it needed to be strong.

DT- we applied our understanding of how to strengthen structures, triangulation and joins to create a mock up of a structure.

For our leadership awards, we organised and distributed the books for the Bookfair. We had such fun and it really helped to develop our organisational and financial skills.

Spanish- weather and pencil case objects

Art- creating stencils using styrofoam and a range of equipment.

Spanish- revisiting clothing vocabulary in active learning

Science Active Learning- we went around and collected individual images of celebrities and their parents. We then matched them in the classroom. We also completed an image scrimmage of animals with certain mutations and describe why these mutations were harmful.

Noor Inayat Khan

To mark black history month, we learnt about Noor Inayat Khan- an inspirational Indian Muslim woman, who fought for our freedom in WWII. 

We had read Noor's biography in a reading lesson in September and we wanted to learn more about her. We watched a few videos and discussed how and why it is important that we remember her. We were all shocked that we had never heard of her before. 

History- Discussing and evaluating the causes for the three main crimes in the Early Modern Period: smuggling, highwaymen and poaching.

In music, we have been using body percussion to focus on dynamics

In art, we have been looking at some of Banksy's famous Street Art. We have been carefully thinking about the messages that he tries to portray.

To begin our Crime and Punishment topic in history, we put some key British and World history events on a timeline where we believed they should go. We then discussed the correct chronology so we could then begin to learn about Roman Crimes and Punishments.

For PSHE lessons, we have been thinking about Mental Health and how we can think positively. We went round the class and gave each other compliments and talked about how they made us feel. We now have these as bookmarks so we can look at them throughout the day.
