Our topic for this half term is 'Let It Shine!'. We will be learning all about light and how the human eye works.
(Just look at these eyeballs we made in art- Mrs D says they stare at her while she marks after school!)
We have just finished our writing unit on The Giant's Necklace where we wrote fantastic formal and informal letters. We wrote an informal letter from Cherry to her mother to apologise for her stubborn attitude which led to disaster. We then wrote letters of complaint from Cherry's brother to the coastguard for not doing enough to save her.
Now we've moved on to writing flashbacks inspired by 'The Piano' by Aiden Gibbons. Check out the animation that we are using in class, below - it is rather moving!
Stay tuned for some beautiful pieces of writing - I have been truly WOWED already.
That's all for now!

In history we are learning about the Ancient Mayan civilisation. Did you know they supposedly discovered cocoa which is how we have chocolate?!
I have just received the feedback from Helen Sharman - Guild of Drama Adjudicators.
Here's some of what she had to say about our Macbeth performance at Norden Farm:
"We were treated to some strong performances. The witches all had clear voices and their choral sections were spot on. Macbeth spoke with confidence and authority and she, (the part was played by a girl) had excellent rapport with the audience. She displayed fine hysterics at the vision of Banquo and died with aplomb! His lady spoke with understanding and certainly gave her husband a piece of her mind. She should be congratulated on a spectacular death fall, too. Macduff also gave a strong performance and had a great evil laugh. Overall, the groupings were pleasing and the cast moved with assurance. A most entertaining take on this famous play. Well done!"
In science we have been learning about the circulatory system! Today was all about how nutrients are absorbed by blood and carried around the body.
