Welcome to Class 4! Miss Humphreys is our teacher and Mrs Stoner, our brilliant TA, is with us every day to support our learning across the curriculum.
We have had an exciting start to the year. In the first week, we were very surprised to find a mysterious, tatty cardboard box in our classroom. This appeared to be a portal to the past! Over the week, we received letters from a Viking and eventually a dragon egg appeared, with a riddle to solve! We enjoyed watching our water dragon hatch in its tank.
This has linked to our work English, where we have been reading ‘How to Train Your Dragon’ by Cressida Cowell. We have been writing setting descriptions of the Dragon Nursery, remembering to include the 5 senses, expanded noun phrases and fronted adverbials. We also wrote some super similes such as ‘The cave is as cold as the potato waffles in my freezer.’ and ‘The dragons are as colourful as a packet of Skittles.’
In Art, we learnt about Quentin Blake and had a go at his style of drawing. We look forward to eventually creating our own monster illustrations and sculptures out of clay, focusing on pattern and texture. In History, our topic is the Anglo-Saxons and Vikings. We have enjoyed learning about why the Anglo-Saxons invaded Britain and where they settled.
Our Whole Class Reading text is the fabulous ‘Voices in the Park’ by Anthony Browne. Our Maths work has begun with recapping and developing our number and place value knowledge before moving on to addition and subtraction.
