Bellatrix (Year 4/5)
We have all really enjoyed our ‘Predator’ topic this half term. We have learned all about food chains, life cycles and plants. Here is a summary of our learning and a celebration of our work:
We used the ‘Wolves in the Walls’ book by Neil Gaiman as a stimulus for our own suspense stories. We tried hard to use paragraphs, speech punctuation and interesting vocabulary to create characters, plot and settings in our stories. Here are some examples of our fantastic work:
We studied poems from ‘The Lost Words’ by Robert Macfarlane and Jackie Morris and were inspired to write our own acrostic poems that included use of alliteration, metaphor and simile. Here is a selection of some of our work:
We absolutely loved the illustrations in ‘The Lost Words’ and decided to create our own versions of them using watercolours. We spent time developing our watercolour skills and found out how to create different textures in our work.
We absolutely love our finished display which shows our art work and poems.
We make sure we listen to a fantastic story every day. Here are the books we have enjoyed this half term:
Well done to Tommy for achieving the gold award in the summer reading challenge!
Well done to Billy for winning September’s reading raffle! Billy has read his book at home and says it’s a fantastic read!
Bellatrix class has PE on a Friday. Your child needs to come to school in an outdoor PE kit.
Your child has been issued with a home reading book and a record log that needs to be signed to show that they have read. Please support and encourage your child to read at least three times each week at home.
Your child also has a log in for Times Tables Rock Stars – this is a really fun game for them to learn their times tables.
