The Emperor's Egg

We have been busy bees discovering our new book The Emperor's Egg this week. We have looked at where the book is set, what life is like for the penguins and we have written some amazing descriptions using alliteration and personification. This afternoon we also created our own life cycle of a penguin wheel and discussed each stage of the life cycle with our partners.

A day at the fair

Today we have been practicing a poem called 'A day at the fair'. We used our 'poetry voices' to read it aloud and put actions to it to help us remember. Afterwards, we worked together to identify the nouns, adjectives and onomatopoeia! Aren't we amazing?

Out with a bang!

Today we did our own research into why we celebrate bonfire night. We used the iPads and lots of talking to our friends about what they already knew to find out lots of facts and then we used these to create our own presentations. We showed them to the rest of the class - we were very brave!

Patty of culture!

Today we received a letter from a local fish and chip shop asking us to design them a new patty to sell in their shop to celebrate The City of Culture 2017. We researched about how patties were made and what they were usually made from. Then we taste tested lots of different ingredients to decide which ones we were going to use in our own patties. Some we loved, some we....well.... let's say they ended up in the bin! We're really looking forward to making the real thing later on this week.

Read all about it!

Today we have been newspaper reporters. We have read a range of newspaper articles and decided on the features that they all had in common. This is what we came up with. Do you agree?
