We thought about our senses: hearing, sight, touch and smell to write the words in our groups. We then presented our work to the rest of the class. We looked at other groups work to collect a bank of ideas to use in our seaweed poems.
We received a letter from Pirate Purplebeard. We decided to make islands to help. We looked at 3D shapes, in particular cones and cylinders. We made volcanoes from cones and made cylinders to make the trunks of the palm trees.
We will then use our islands to create maps to help find the treasure.
We attended Easton College Tennis Centre to compete against other schools in a range of activities to develop our ability, balance and co-ordination. These form the foundations of skills which can then be developed to play ball / team games later in life.
We really enjoyed the day and some of us achieved a certificate to demonstrate that we really tried and put in a lot of effort in a variety of situations. These included teamwork, encouraging others, concentration, super listening skills and other factors required for us to succeed.
We also enjoyed meeting children from other schools and competing against them in a sports environment.
We discussed the shape of the lines if the sea was gentle and what sort of shades we would use. We then talked about if the sea was very rough and how this may look and make us feel. We talked about shape, composition, tone, shade and lines including zig zag and swirls to create our pictures. We made sure our pictures reflected the mood of how the sea made us feel. We used sponges to add texture to our paintings.
We decided as a class to only use blue and yellow to make green and then use white and black to adjust the shade and tone. We decided not to use red as Hedgehog class said the sea isn’t red!
Look at the bank of amazing colours we were able to make only using two primary colours.
In PE we have been using our bodies and movement to learn about people, jobs, the dangers and how to defend ourselves aboard a pirate ship. We used the hall to run to the bow, stern, port, starboard and the compass points.
the crow’s nest where we shouted ‘Land A’hoy!!’.
We made the shape of a pirate ship and rowed our way to safety away from the rats, sharks and boom coming over!!
