What have we been up to this week?
The highlights of Arundel's week
We finished our inquiry about the rainforest. The presentations were fantastic. We had role plays, posters and even a video! We also had the wonderful story of 'Quaiderella' written which kept us very entertained.
We had our WOW Day. Miss Tabram was very scary as a Victorian teacher. We learnt that if children were naughty they could get 'six of the best' or even a Dunce's hat for being incompetent. We also learnt what Victorian boys and girls would learn. Girls got to cook and we made cookies and sandwiches. Boys got to dig and tend to the gardens as well as try some technical drawing. We also made peg dolls and boys got to decorate the cookies.
This week on World Book Day we took a fairytale and added a funny character to see what would happen. We also dressed up! We then created our own books. We made different switches in Science to break and connect a circuit so the light would come on. In Maths we have been looking at perimeters and also creating a line graph. Some of us created a scatter graph with a best fit line. We then ate sweets too! Yum!
We have been comparing Victorian schools, 1950s schools and schools now. We thought about how schools could change in the future. In science we were trying to see if the length of wire changed the brightness of the bulb. We composed relaxing and calm music to help us relax. It has also been red nose day. We have dressed in pyjamas and been telling jokes. Here are some of our favourites:
Dr Dr everyone is ignoring me.
What did the traffic light say to the car?
Don't look, I'm changing!
Why isn't a stick insect a stick insect without the t?
Because is will be a sick insect.
What do you call a sheep with no legs?
Which sea creature is famous?
Dr Dr I think I've been bitten by a vampire.
Drink this water.
Will it make me feel better?
No, but I'll be able to see if your neck leaks.
Why couldn't the sailors play cards?
Because the captain was standing on the deck.
