Roll up, roll up! You're going on a day trip to a theme park to soak up the unique sights, smells and sounds of the fair. Okay, ready to ride? Don't forget to scream if you want to go faster!
Topic homework has been given out today (26/10/18) Please see the sheet below to see what is expected. All children should complete three pieces of homework, one creative, one science and one English based activity. These pieces of homework should have some time and effort put into them and the children should be able to talk about what they have done for homework presentations.
This week we have been writing calligrams in English. The children loved looking at this style of poetry and making their poem in the shape of a roller coaster. Take a look at our below!
This week, in English, we have been focusing on our descriptive writing and punctuating speech. The children have worked hard all week to think about how they would feel at different points on a roller coaster, from queuing to actually being on the ride. They thought about the different conversation that would have with their friends as well! Today we put all our hard work to good use and wrote a short narrative, which included speech. I must say how impressed I am with the children's writing this week, what they have achieved is fantastic and they are showing great progress! Take a look at some of our writing below.

Today, in science, we were investigating whether the shape of an object impacts how quickly it sinks. We used clay to make different shaped objects and sank them in water, timing how long it took for them to sank.

This week in English we have been looking at radio adverts. Today, we wrote our very own radio adverts in pairs. The children then performed their advert and we recorded them below. Have a listen to see whether you fancy going on one of the new rides! Once we have recorded them all we will be sending them to Alton towers to see what they think!

This week has been our innovate week for our topic Scream Machine. The children were given the challenge to create a ride with a drop, that would have to hold two eggs in the carriage. The children had to make sure the eggs didn’t break and that they stayed safe within the carriage, without falling out. The majority of the children were successful with their egg drop rides, however, we did have a few accidents where our egg characters ended up seriously injured! Take a look at our pictures below!
