As there are a few children absent and because it is half term next week, I have posted the spellings that need to be learnt. Your child should know which spelling group they are in.
As part of our learning about Shakespeare, the children have been analysing Shakespearean language. During the lesson they have discovered lots of new vocabulary and used this to good effect to insult each other! Have a watch of the following video and see if you can work out what they are saying to each other - they've been most offensive!!
A word of warning... if your child says you are 'nice', they may not be being as complimentary as you imagine!
We have been kindly supplied with some Anglo-Saxon artefacts from Sutton Hoo, by one of our very supportive grand-parents, Mr Harvey, which the children have enjoyed investigating. They were stunned by the weight of the chain mail and couldn't imagine how anyone managed to wear this along with other armour and fight at the same time! What do you think the big wooden 'spoon' is for?
Welcome back after the long weekend - I hope you all made good use of the sunshine? 4S certainly did this afternoon! As part of our studies of Shakespeare's 'A Midsummer Night's Dream', the children participated in a drama activity where each group had to freeze frame a given scene whilst the other children had to guess what they were interpreting. I have included photos of their freeze frames below - I wonder if you can work out what parts of the book they are portraying?
Each week we will update our blog with activities, pictures and comments on what we have been learning!
