Aunt Spiker and Aunt Sponge!
What evil Aunts James Trotter had? We've been learning how to use adjectives in character descriptions to be able to describe the delightful Aunt Spiker and Aunt Sponge! We collected adjectives into a Word Cloud and then decided on which layout and colours worked best for these evil creatures!
Chocolate Making Workshop
What a fantastic day we had yesterday! Debbie from The Homemade House came to visit us and shared her passion for chocolate! We learnt about where chocolate comes from and what the cocoa bean looks like. We got to try some Cocoa Nibs...which were very bitter and learnt that chocolate gets it's sweet taste from the sugar. We then practiced our D&T skills by piping melted chocolate into button shapes and decorating! They were delicious!
Roald Dahl Day!
We were very lucky to take part in the BBC Teach Live Lesson for Roald Dahl Day this morning. We joined in with all the activities and even got a mention on the conversation page!

Vegetable and Fruit Sketching
We have had a lovely Friday afternoon sketching different types of fruit and vegetables. We then used oil pastels to shade, give colour and add detail. We can't wait to display these in the classroom!
We finished off a long week with a lovely shared reading session with Willow Class. We heard Willow children read their reading books in the sunshine and then got to write in their Reading Records! We loved listening and helping them with our own knowledge!
