In English we have carried out Talk for Writing to help us retell stories that we have learnt. We have retold Rosa Parks, Wild and Traction Man. We have learnt the story and used Talk for Writing to help us write our own endings or own versions of the stories.

In science during our 'Materials' unit, we conducted an experiment to find out which materials are waterproof. We were trying to find a good material to make Traction man's new jacket.

We meet 4 times a week for our group reading time. This involves: reading with an adult, discussing the book and answering questions, completing some indpependent work based on the reading domains or trying to improve our score on Spelling Shed.

During Black History Month we completed some work about Mary Seacole. We learnt about her life and what she did. We used our art skills to create a pastel image of her and added a fact to accompany the image.
In our unit on 'Materials', we have been learning the key vocabulary words: squash, twist, stretch and bend.
We made our own playdough to practise these techniques.
We had a great visit to Tolson Museum to experience a Victorian classroom experience.
Miss Hirst taught us and we had to write on slate using slate pencils and we had to write letters. We had to make words using individual letter cards and say a rhyme from the blackboard.
We investigated transport in the museum gallery and learnt about the weavers and the mill machines upstairs. We could play with a range of Victorian toys and learnt about some mysterious Victorian objects. We learnt a lot and had a good time. It was also exciting to get dressed up for our trip.
