This week is National Story telling week. This week you will be able to enjoy some stories read by some very familiar faces. To start off the week Miss Hall will be reading ‘Un Cadeau Parfait pour Maman’ in French…
Last week the special reading boxes were out into circulation. Our first person to take this home was Lily Mason who enjoyed hot chocolate with her family and reading with nana and mum. Lily loves reading – she really enjoys chatting to me and her peers about books which is fantastic to see!
Who will be next to receive the amazing reading box in 4H?
To celebrate National Poetry Day year 2 learnt and recited the poem ‘ The River’ by Valerie Bloom.
in Year 4 we’ve been learning the poem ‘The Book’ by Michael Rosen. We started learning this in our first week of the half term and this week we revisited it in honour of World Poetry Day. Mrs Burrows and I were so impressed by how well the children remembered it! I’m sure you’ll agree.
As part of our evolution and inheritance work in Science we have spent today celebrating “Moth Day”. The stimulus for this was the text ‘Moth’ by Isabel Thomas and with lovely illustrations by Daniel Egneus.
We used the story to help us track the stages of adaptation of the peppered moth (Biston betularia).
This afternoon we then looked at a research paper from the University of Manchester which measured moth populations in Leeds. We used their academic data to plot the moth populations. We then drew conclusions from this data and compared with the findings from the paper abstract.
