With the Kings Birthday next week it might be a good time to reflect on birthdays.
How do we celebrate birthdays?
Do all cultures celebrate the same?
We practised using dictionaries again this week and are getting much better at finding words. We then tried to put the new words we'd learned in a sentence. It was a great challenge!
In maths we continued our measuring by looking at how we can measure mass. It was great to use the scales and we tried really hard to compare different objects; finding which were heavier or lighter.
In LITERACY we a have been creating spooky spells. We took our inspiration from reading Macbeth and listening to the three witches. We tried to included rhyme, alliteration and lots of creepy adjectives. We used our best witches voices to act out our poems - they were spell-tastic!
In MATHS this week we have been thinking and learning about time. We have been asking time questions such as- 'How long does it take me to eat my breakfast?' and 'How many times could I walk around the garden in an hour?' We have been practising telling the time and ordering different times so now there's no excuse for us being late!
To celebrate the end of our Shakespeare topic, Year 2 were lucky enough to watch a famous scene from A Midsummer Night's Dream. The Year 7s performed a fabulous enactment of Queen Titania and King Oberon's quarrel in the woods.
Some of our best risk takers also took to the stage as they read out their favourite piece of writing, based on A Midsummer Night's Dream. Ms Clare was very impressed with our adventurous adjectives and even spotted a few similes. Well done everyone!
