Wow, we have had a very busy week back!
In maths, we have been drawing and interpreting pictograms. Can you describe what a pictogram is to someone at home? We have been looking at pictograms where each picture is worth 1, 2, 5, or 10. Our times-table knowledge has come in real handy when completing this work. We have also be looking at block diagrams and created our very own. Can you tell someone at home what a block diagram is? Next week, we will be learning about 2D and 3D shapes and their properties.
This week, our English lessons started off in a very unusual way... The Owl Class had received an urgent letter from the Mayor of Derby asking if we could search for dragon clues! He advised us that a dragon had escaped from Repton's secret castle and was last seen circling over Repton Primary School. He asked us if we could search for clues that might help him write a 'Missing Dragon' poster. So, we cautiously entered our school's forest school in search for any clues that may tell us about the dragon who entered our school at the weekend. We found lots of different items, including dragon's teeth, claws, golden eggs, feathers, dragon scales and footprints. We then placed all of our evidence on the table and discussed what we thought the dragon might look like, what he eats and if he is dangerous or not. The children then wrote their own 'Wanted' posters to send off to the Mayor. The children did a fantastic job at describing the dragon and it helped the Mayor to write a 'Missing Dragon' poster for the people of Repton.
Next week, it is World Book Day. Throughout the week the children will be provided with fantastic opportunities to share their love of reading and writing. In English, we will be completing some descriptive work around the book, 'The Night Dragon'. We are very excited!
In topic, we have been looking at the jobs and roles in a medieval castle. Can you tell someone at home some of the jobs they may have had in a castle? Which jobs would you like?
Well done for a fantastic week Owls! Have a great weekend.
