A busy first week back after a lovely half term break. I hope you all had a lovely rest and are ready for your last half term at Shavington Primary!

 

We have spent this week working on editing and improving two previous pieces of writing and then have moved on to using DASH in our writing to create tension, suspense and atmosphere – we have some very gory ideas for our stories! We have spent time thinking about how we can use a range of vocabulary, conjunctions, openers and punctuation in our writing to help to engage the reader.

 

We have worked on our topic book covers, creating a silhouette of the Taj Mahal and creating a background using water colours. We have looked at some traditional Indian elephant art work, where they paint and decorate elephants as part of festivals and celebrations. We’ve used this to create some of our own designs. Also, in our topic work we have started to think about some of the differences between the UK and India with a focus on geography. We have researched the physical features of the land such as mountains, rivers and size of the country; we have looked at the population statistics; and the differences between the countries flags and key buildings (man-made features).

 

In maths this week we have been looking at graphs, specifically line graphs. We have been reading and interpreting the graphs and then have moved on to create our own incorporating some maths art!

 

We have also had a visit from GIST this week to discuss and share important information regarding road safety. We had a great time having a go in the lorry! See the blog for photos.

 

Malbank High School staff have been to visit the group of children transitioning there for September, where the children were able to discuss and ask questions about anything that they have concerns about before they attend their transition days later this month.
