I really enjoy Music with Flamingo Class, they always join in so brilliantly. Today we learnt a new song called 'Up, Up, Up'. I took a video so that we could watch it back (which was great fun) and we could evaluate our singing. We discussed how the pitch travels up as we sing 'up, up, up'. Enjoy watching our video!
Wow, another busy week in Flamingo Class. At the start of the week we were learning about the differences between the town and the countryside in Geography. We listened to the fable about the town mouse and the country mouse and then had some pictures to sort. During our science day we did some chromatography, we had to investigate and separate colours in a mixture. We also did some gravity experiments. In DT we had our first attempt at making finger puppets, these were trickier than we thought, we will be continuing to make puppets using different ways of joining.
Here is a video from inside the Space dome:
We have had a busy start to the Spring Term. We have written poems about Mr Twit and have been learning about fractions. 10 children went to Compass Point for a Pobble day when the spent the day writing a character description of a monster. We worked with a teacher called Zoe, she helped us to improve our vocabulary and write using different adjectives and exciting openers. Flamingoes have also been learning how to find halves and quarters of amounts, we did this practically. Take a look at our photos to see our fantastica learning!
This term in Flamingo Class we are reading the story 'The Twits' by Roald Dahl. Click on the video below to hear the beginning of the story.
I have written a poem about Mr Twit:
Spiky and mean
Sneakily, steathily, spitefully
Tricking, capturing, eating, burping.
Do you like my poem? Can you do a better job? Perhaps you could write a poem about Mrs Twit? Here are some instructions for how to write a poem like this:
First pick a noun.
Then use two adjectives linked by 'and'.
Next pick 3 adverbs ending in -ly. Don't forget your commas , !
Finally pick 4 verbs that end in -ing.
In the end you will have a fabulous poem. Have a go in the comments box!
