This week we have been learning about poetry. We have been reading aloud funny poems, rhyming poems and poems with lots of different topics. We have explored alliteration and had a go at writing some acrostic poems. Take a look at how hard we have been working!

Today we had a great PE lesson practicing all the ways of travelling that we have learnt. We also thought about coordination through our mirroring activities and enjoyed challenging ourselves to do as many jumps and hops as we could in 2 minutes.

In English we have been working hard on writing descriptions including noun phrases and conjunctions. Here we are describing some scenes from the traditional tale of Cinderella.

We have been learning how to make short animations on Purple Mash using 2animate.

We have been learning about how emotions can be portrayed by colour. We learnt how to draw detailed self portraits and then painted them to show emotions.
