Doric Play

Our Doric plays are really beginning to come together. We have done a lot of practice with a particular focus on our expression. We are now beginning to introduce props too. We have worked really hard to include a lot of Doric. With such a beautiful day we even managed to practice outside!

This Term So Far….

What a busy term it has been, we are already past half way!

Our topic this term is Aberdeen and we have been looking at the different industries. These industries included Fishing, Textiles, Oil and Tourism which are all very interesting. We are enjoying this topic.

We have also been learning Doric and using it in our play scripts. We will be acting these out soon.

We have also had a lot of fun in music, learning different songs to play on the glockenspiel. We have learned Mary Had a Little Lamb and Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.

It has been fun playing the glockenspiel but it’s a lot harder than it looks!

In maths we are learning the different shapes and how to describe them. Some of us have also been learning about different types of triangles and how to describe them. We had fun using the mystery box to describe and name a shape.

Finally we we have been very lucky to take part in First Aid training. We learned how to position someone into the recovery position. We learned how to help save someones life and how to stop someone from choking. We also learned about different inhalers.

imageimage image image image image

We worked with partners to practice moving someone into the recovery position. We also learned what DRAB stands for.

This term we are also looking forward to Sports Day, Crathes House Prize and the Danceathon! Of course not forgetting the end of year disco!

Our Victorian Classroom Experience

In class today, we pretended that we were in a Victorian classroom.We even had a Dunce cap! If you were bad, laughing or being silly you would have to wear it.

At the end, three people got to be the teacher and tell us what to do, they where very good at it! There were more punishments like writing 50 or 100 lines.

image

We got to write on slates, we wrote the alphabet, the 6 and 7 times table and the class rules. We would definitely do it again and recommend it to other class’s that are doing Victorians.

Happy Haiku

As part of our study of poetry we created a Haiku. Firstly we came up with a mind map of wow words for different topics.

Then we chose our own topic and created our poems, thinking very carefully about the number of syllables. We have produced some great pieces of work!

Our Week

Over the past few weeks we have been working very hard on our booklets about Queen Victoria. We have been researching lots of interesting facts on her life and family.

We are starting to put our booklets together and they look really good so far. We have not only been using the internet, we have also been using books. A few of our booklets have tea stained pages and some just have white paper. We have done this to make it look like it was from the Victorian times and very old. We think they look really good like this so we hope you like them too!

Here are a few pictures of them for you to look at:

We have started writing poems this week too. We each had to select an emotion and use the five senses to describe it. Here are some examples of our work.

Surprised

Surprised is sparkly and bright orange.

It tastes like delicious chocolate cake.

It sounds like people are shocked.

Surprised smells like fresh strawberries.

It looks like a happy day.

Surprised makes you feel excited.

By Gaby

Happiness

Happiness is yellow.

It tastes like warm lemon drizzle cake,

And smells as lovely as a daffodil.

Happiness looks like the cheerful sun,

And the sound of birds singing.

Happiness is an amazing feeling.

By Sasha

Excitement

Excitement is light blue.

It tastes like hot apple pie and smells like melted white chocolate.

It looks like children opening presents,

And sounds like jumping kangaroos.

Excitement is joyful!

By Sam

Anger

Anger is red.

Anger tastes like rotten red jalapenos.

Anger smells like poorly picked poison ivy.

Anger looks like a mean red puff of air.

It sounds like a frightening growl.

Anger feels like clenched fists!

By Maria

Fear

Fear is dark and cold.

Fear tastes like soggy bread,

And smells like old milk.

It looks like an old house

And it sounds like something in my ear talking to me.

Fear is scary!

By Freya

Surprise

Surprise is dark blue.

It tastes like popping candy,

And it smells of melted chocolate.

Surprise looks like exploding rocks,

And sounds like singing birds.

Surprise is really fun!

Victorian Inspired Rooms

For the past two weeks we have been working on our Victorian inspired rooms and they are really starting to take shape! We have been involved in a lot of designing, cutting and glueing. We have been working very hard on them and have put in a lot of effort. We have been using all sorts of junk from home including cardboard tubes, tinfoil and carpet. We are having lots of fun making them. A few are photographed below, take a look and we hope you like them!
