Making Books

Great news.....Jack's grandma's painting has won the Yellow Pages competition. Watch out for Jack and his friends on the front cover of the next issue. Thank you to everyone who voted for her.

Last week we were busy working on two types of books to get them finished by the end of term. The first are the story books we have been making with our Room 5 buddies The stories are based on an adventure our soft toys had at school. On Friday we decided which of the photos we took last week would work best in our books. Then we worked on the computer to type up the text from our story boards. Watch out for how we get on compling our books next week.




On Wednesday we used the palette of coloured papers we had created to make our own bugs in the style of illustrator Eric Carle. Take a look at the colourful results and watch part 2 of our movie on how to make an Eric Carle picture.

This week we will be looking at alternative ways of making the 'ue' sound e.g. 'clue', 'threw', and 'tune'. Our Tricky words are 'would' and 'could'. On Monday we will be having our final visit of the year to the Suter Art Gallery. As we move into December our poem of the week has a Christmas feel and in art we will be making hanging star Santa's. We will be busy rehearsing for Over The Rainbow with our first whole syndicate run through on Wednesday. Don't forget to send costumes in by Friday this week. In maths we will begin our final topic on geometry looking at the properties of 2D and 3D shapes. Meanwhile our tadpoles are growing well and eating alot of pond weed, if anyone can spare some pond weed please drop it to Room 11.
