What have we been up to?

In English we have been writing descriptive poems of a tiger thinking carefully about the vocabulary we use. We used expanded noun phrases, similies and even adverbs to describe the tiger's movements! Here is an example of our wonderful work! Well done Tigers; you're grrrrreat!

On Thursday the Tigers visited Graves to take part in a Multi Sports Activity morning! The children were amazing as they worked together as a team throughout the various activities!

We played shooting stars, sticky toffee tig, a hoop and beanbag relay game and even created our own dance! What an amazing time we had! Well done everybody!!

We looked at the famous painting 'Castle and the Sun' by Paul Klee and used this as inspiration to create our own versions, firstly using 2D shapes and then oil pastels. Each looked unique and different and we can't wait to see the final product next week when we complete them using a wash for the background!
