Descriptive Writing

Eagle Class were given a choice of four pictures to describe in as much detail as possible to create the opening of a story. They focused on the 5 senses to create their beautiful descriptions.

Here are the choice of pictures. Can you match the descriptions to the correct pictures?

Finishing the week on a high!

We have reached the end of another week! Here are some photos of the activities that you have been doing at home to finish off the week. Have a look and see what others have been up to…

Zac completed the STEM activity to build a bridge that was strong enough to hold a car toy. His impressive bridge was made out of Kapla blocks and it looks great. Well done Zac!

Amelia carefully followed the recipe that I posted to make some delicious flapjack. She chose to add some raisins as an extra treat! Well done Amelia, it looks delicious. Now for the best bit… eating it!

Joseph has written this fantastic poem – My Little Flower. He spent time typing it up on the computer and chose the font, the layout and the pictures. It is so beautifully written Joseph; I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. Well done!

Working hard…

Edward was really pleased with his work on our word of the week – inspire. He has thought of some brilliant synonyms and antonyms and four different suffixes to add to the root word to change its meaning. He also completed the extra challenge and found the second meaning for the word inspire!

Bun has also been working extremely hard on his writing this week. He has been practising the spelling rules and applying them to his writing. Well done Bun; keep up the great work.

A busy start to the week…

It is only Monday, but some of you have already been so busy!

Judah created a beautiful piece of artwork using sand. I love how colourful it is! And finally, after a very long wait, Judah’s tooth fell out! It has been wobbly since before school closed!

Benjy has been busy designing a rugby shirt for the Bath Rugby competition. It looks like a winner to me!

And Joseph had a go at the science experiment to grow his own rainbow! It looks brilliant, well done!

VE Day Celebrations!

Jessica and her family had a lovely day celebrating VE Day on Friday. They made their own bunting and had a tea party in the garden. I love Jessica’s outfit and the Victoria sponge cake looks incredible! It looks like it was a great day! Thank you for sharing your wonderful photos.

A very creative week at home…

So many wonderful pictures of the work and activities that you have been doing at home this week. Scroll down to see what everyone has been up to.

Daisy has created some amazing artwork. It is absolutely beautiful and must have taken such a long time! I love how it has been created in the shape of a heart. Well done Daisy!

Judah was inspired by Mr Joy’s Landmark Quiz and has spent some time learning some facts about some of the famous landmarks that were featured. His favourite was the Eiffel Tower which he has made out of lego…

Joseph had a maths lesson with his grandad this week where they created a map of the downstairs of the house. He also drew a picture to show how Bath fits into the planet!

Joseph has also been working really hard on his English and grammar this week. Just look at his amazing work…

Josie has sent in some brilliant pictures that she wanted to share with the class. The whole family have worked together to paint an enchanted fairy garden in the hallway and a stained glass window! Josie has also been making posters to support our NHS and been spending lots of the time in the sunshine…

What an incredible week! Keep up the amazing work Eagle Class.

More fun learning from home

Look at how Lacey has completed this drawing to show us what the photographer is taking a photo of … it’s a rainbow tornado! What a beautiful picture! The colouring is so perfectly neat and I love the photographer’s outfit! Well done Lacey.

Jessica managed to solve the ‘sealed solution’ maths problem. She said that it has been one of her favourite tasks so far! Excellent work!

Maisie has been busy baking at home and creating some beautiful artwork. The paper craft to make the tree is incredible! I would love to have a go at that.

Joseph’s big achievement this week was completing a 1000 piece puzzle which had 15 differences from the given picture! He said it was “the hardest puzzle ever!” What an accomplishment.

Joseph and his sister have also been busy following Robert Winston’s recipe for Giant Bubbles! They then spent the whole afternoon playing with them in the garden. This looks like such great fun. If you would like to have a go at making them, you can find the recipe and instructions on our class web page.

Hansel and Gretel with a twist!

So many of you have had a go at re-writing the story of Hansel and Gretel. As I predicted, you were far more imaginative than I was with the three things that you changed. Have a read through of each other’s stories to see how the original Fairy Tale has been altered. Well done all of you; such brilliant writing.

Creative learning at home

Nathanael has been wearing his watch at home so that he can practise telling the time. He also drew a picture to show our word of the week – ‘anticipate’. What a brilliant idea. The picture perfectly shows someone anticipating something!

Joseph has continued to learn about building stable structures and has finished his final project! It looks amazing! He has clearly studied the best techniques to successfully build his model.

Cara’s super writing!

Cara sent in this picture of her amazing piece of writing that she completed in her comprehension book! I absolutely loved reading this and I’m sure you all will too. Well done Cara, you have clearly worked very hard. I hope you managed to escape the dinosaur in the end! Keep up the great work.

Joseph’s construction

After watching a programme on construction, Joseph used cocktail sticks and mini marshmallows to build his own amazing structure! He then wrote up his experiment and analysed what had worked well. He also measured the finished structure using a tape measure. I wonder if it would have been bigger if Joseph hadn’t eaten some of the marshmallows…
