This week as a class we have been learning to read digital and analogue clocks. We  had lots of fun discussing time, making clocks and answering questions related to time.


Chocolate cornflake cakes – a yummy treat!!


As a treat and a culmination of our English learning journey (instruction writing), the children made chocolate cornflake cakes. They decorated them with a spooky Halloween twist; they were made into spiders!

As an example of instruction writing, the class studied recipes and wrote their own instructions on how to make chocolate cornflake cakes. It was a fun hook and incentive to their writing!

Local author inspires children


Ex Wroxall teacher, Mr Kieran Larwood, came into school on Tuesday to share his new book, ‘The Beasts of Grimheart’.

He gave a talk to the children about the book, including the characters, setting and plot. This was really useful for the class because one of their end of year writing objectives is ‘In narratives, creates settings, character and plot’. Good writers can draw upon ideas that they have read in books and that is why it is so important that children are exposed to a range of fiction, poetry, non-fiction, and reference and textbooks.
