Willow Class have been hard at work since returning from the summer break. We have fully embraced work linked to our class book Here We Are by Oliver Jeffers. On Monday we took part in a question and answer session with Devizes MP, Danny Kruger. We asked questions about how the government would continue the positive environmental impacts of lockdown. Everyone thought of brilliant questions and those who spoke in the live Teams meeting did so confidently and eloquently.
We have also created posters to go up around school to encourage the community to help maintain the positive impact of lockdown on the environment.
Later in the week, we went outside to look up at the sky. We made close observations and noted down what we could hear and feel. From these ideas, we painted the day skyline and went on to write poems entitled Day Walker inspired by Phillip Gross’ Night Walker poem.
In maths, as well as concentrating on place value and rounding numbers, we have been reminding ourselves of all 2D shapes and their properties. We enjoyed working in pairs and labelling 2D shapes on our desks this week.
In addition to this, we’ve started finding out about Captain Cook for our Explorers topic, learnt about Giacometti in art, recapped netball passing skills in PE, discussed the life of a slave in Ancient Egypt to launch our RE topic and enjoyed the beginning of our Happy unit in music! It has certainly been a busy 8 days!
