In Science, we have been learning all about light. Today, we took advantage of the beautiful weather to observe and record information about our shadows.
In pairs, we started by drawing around each other’s shadows with chalk. We then measured the shadow and recorded this information on our whiteboards, whilst also commenting on the direction of the shadow.
We will be going back out after 12 and later this afternoon, to observe how our shadows have changed.
Please ask the children about their findings when you collect them today!
Our current unit in English is Newspaper Articles and this week we have been looking at the difference between direct quotes and reported speech. We got in to character as Phileas Fogg, Jean Passepartout and witnesses at the Reform Club, to create direct quotes to be used in our hot task.
I have been playing in the Steel Band for 3 months and 16 days. The song we are practising at the moment is called ‘I BELIEVE IN ANGELS’ by ABBA. This is a song you can listen to every day and it makes me feel happy.
The names of the pans in our band are: Bass, Single Seconds and Tenor Pans. I have always played the Bass Pan which plays the beat of the song. I like the way I can use some of the notes from other songs we have practised for the Christmas Concert. I have to hit the Bass Pan softly with my beater, because the Tenor pans are playing the tune. So, they have to be the loudest.
I like performing in front of other people. We have to practise really hard to make sure our performances are amazing.
The children loved being a Tudor for the day and learned many new skills in the Tudor merchants workshops. They also learned about Tudor banquet etiquette and entertainment by performing Tudor dancing, singing and plays.
