Our trip to Redditch Library with our buddy readers from Cherry Class was a great success. We had a tour of the library, which included an inquisitive trip down into the basement to look at the archive of treasured books and old copies of the Redditch Indicator newspaper; some from two hundred years ago! Hannah read us 'Where The Poppies Now Grow' as part of our Remembrance topic and we had the chance to be creative and discover new books to share with our peers. Make sure you let us know which books you've been borrowing with your library cards!

Our chosen books...

Time

We have been working hard on mastering telling the time over the last couple of weeks. Mr Veness and six Year 4 children led an extremely active lesson where the children became hands on a clock face, to help solve lots of tricky time puzzles.

Chess Book

This week, we have been working together to create a whole class book that teaches you how to play chess. One copy was gifted to Mrs Marshall, who is keen to become a chess 'Grandmaster'.

First News - Newspaper Exchange

To encourage us to read an even wider range of texts, each child in Holt and Seafield Class have been gifted a First News newspaper to keep. These can be read and explored alongside their reading books at home. Children are then able to freely exchange their copy for other issues within class.

Be More Bernard

After sharing the wonderful picture book, 'Be More Bernard', with Cherry Class. We used the story as stimulus to help us celebrate what makes us unique from everybody else, and recognising why it is good to be different.

Active Maths Presentations

We have been using iPads, planning sheets and laptops to create our own active maths games, we then presented all our ideas to Mr Veness.

He was really impressed with the original ideas, as well as the great use of adverbs, imperative verbs and time conjunctions in our writing.

He was asked to choose his favourite, and after much deliberation he finally chose 'Super Hooper' by Tilly and Lucia. You can check out the game by clicking on this link.

Chess

We have been learning to play chess in Seafield Class. We have found that it's really good at improving our problem solving skills and our decision making. Although, if you look closely, it doesn't look like it's going very well for Noah B.

Writing to David Litchfield

We were amazed to discover that David Litchfield, the author and illustrator of 'The Bear and the Piano', had been tweeting about our gigantic class letter and song reviews.

His post even got a 'like' from award winning author, Karl Newson. Cherry Class can tell you all about his books, as they've been reading 'I am a Tiger'.

Banksy Inspired Artwork

After Noah T. found a newspaper article about artist, Banksy. We decided to create some graffiti inspired art based on street names in our village.

We also began to debate whether graffiti was art or vandalism. Our class couldn't decide. Some thought that graffiti added colour and interest to boring buildings, while others thought that most of it was ugly and it cost too much money to clean it off public buildings. What do you think?

Planning Poetry

Inspired by Roald Dahl's, 'Dirty Beasts', we've begun to plan and create our own poems. We used a range of picture books to help generate ideas and to help us recognise rhyming couplets. We are really looking forward to sharing these with everyone.

Performing 'Dirty Beasts'

We have really enjoyed rehearsing and then performing some of Roald Dahl's 'Dirty Beasts' poems to Cherry Class. We worked hard to think about we would really entertain and engage our audience.

Symmetrical Portraits

We used our computer skills in mathematics this week to create symmetrical portraits of the whole class. Some of the results were hilarious.

Dance Mat Typing

We have begun to practise or touch typing as part of one of our morning activities. We've discovered that touch typing is the fastest way to write and that many people quickly learn to touch type faster than they can write with a pen.

We have begun by thinking about the home row keys, thinking carefully about the positioning of our fingers. As well has remembering not to rush and rest our wrists on the desk.

Here is the link, for you to practise at home.

The Bear and the Piano

WOW! What a busy first week in Seafield Class. We have really enjoyed sharing books and newspaper articles with each other. After studying David Litchfield's 'The Bear and the Piano' we created imaginary song reviews and a wrote whole class letter which we have sent to him. Look how gigantic it is, we hope we get a reply.
