Happy New Year Class 7!
This half term our topic was 'Let's Go'. We started by learning about materials and their uses. We looked at Mrs Seaman's car and labelled the materials and discussed why they were used to make the different parts of the car.
We wrote poems about how we travel to school and what we see on the way. We even made a tally chart and made block graphs to show the most and least popular way to travel to school in our class.
After that we read a story called Mrs Armitage's bike and we wrote our own versions. Because we liked her bike so much we learned more about bikes and Mrs Seaman even brought a real bike into school. We wrote information texts about bikes, making our own books to put in the reading corner. Some of the boys even went to see Mrs Nordstrom with their work because they were so proud.
Next we learned about the history of transport. We visited Beamish and we had a ride on lots of old types of transport. We talked to the conductors and asked them lots of questions. When we got back to school we wrote recounts of our trip. They were fantastic recounts and also our handwriting is beginning to improve too!
As we enjoyed our topic so much this half term we are going to continue with the same theme after the holidays. We will be reading a story called 'Lost and Found' and making moving pictures before we turn our attention to Easter!
Keep working hard and making me proud!
