Persuasive Writing WB: 22.2.16
Orienteering - Map Reading Skills
Performing in assembly
Scratch - Computer Programming
We programmed vehicles and made a track so that they could move around. We had to program the vehicles so that they would go left, right, forward and backwards by a tapping different keys on the keyboard. We also added music and graphics. The year 6s came to tell us how to do it and helped us throughout the lesson.
We made a pirate ship game where you had to move between islands without hitting cannons.
I really liked programming and using scratch.

"We have been looking at play scripts. Last week we set the scene using descriptive language and looked at stage directions.
Now we are writing our own play scripts about Pirates. I love doing this because I like acting and writing plays."

December - It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...
Merry Christmas from Kestrel Class
Visiting the local Pig Farm in Shrewton on Wednesday 9th December was a fantastic way for Kestrel class to finish off their "Scrumdiddlyumptious" topic.
A big thank-you to Mr Storer who allowed us to come to his place of work and talk so enthusiastically about the animals, and answer all of our questions from our bag of tricky questions!
Every single child enjoyed themselves and we all especially liked holding a piglet!
We have been learning about Farms and what animals can produce so this was a fantastic learning opportunity for the children to know that bacon, sausages etc do not just appear in the supermarket!
An excellent afternoon had by all!
Welcome back to Kestrel Class and our continued topic of Scrumdiddlyumptious. We have finished our Fairtrade adventure and our new topic under the same umbrella is "On the Farm.."
We are looking at the animals on a farm and the foods that they provide us with.
We have already started by sketching farm animals, and designing our own farms.
Keep checking back as we approach my personal favourite time of year...... Christmas!!

Sewing Farm animal badges!

Stories set in familiar places
We have been learning about E-Safety.
We have specifically been thinking about Photographs on the internet.
We discussed all the things that we thought could be a threat to our safety, then we looked online and made posters to help others.
