This week in English we have designed our own aliens and have been writing alien stories. In the first week back we found a spaceship that had crashed on our school field!

We found a crime scene in our classroom this morning! Who could have done this? What do you think happened?

In history we sorted through a range of items such as fruit, vegetables, clothes, cakes, bread, eggs, milk. We thought about where we might buy these types of items. Most of us said big supermarkets such as Asda. The children were shocked that there wouldn't have been a big supermarket in the 1930s. We discussed what shops there would have been in the 1930s and sorted the items into the right shops.

Week beginning 11th February 2019

We have created a timeline from 1930 - 2020. We have been looking at teddies, fashion and living rooms. We sorted various pictures and items into what year we thought they belonged to.

We had the most magical day on Monday for our Polar Express day. We watched the movie in the morning and spent all afternoon doing different activities. We made a shape train and had a delicious cup of hot chocolate! We even had a special visit from Santa who handed us a magical bell to see if we could hear it ring - meaning that we Believe.

We have been having great fun this week doing lots of Christmas craft activities. We have made a moving reindeer and a Santa plate, along with lots of other festive creations!
