Traction Man is Here!

We have used Traction Man is Here by Mini Grey to improve our vocabulary and grammar skills. 

We have used our imaginations to bring everyday objects to life and write about adventures where Traction Man saves the day!

Here we are writing exclamation sentences!

In Geography, building on our knowledge of mountains, we explored how a river flows.  We built our own meandering rivers.  The source began in the mountains as a spring and flowed down the mountains to the river mouth and ended in a lake or the sea.  We had great fun some of rivers flowed slowly and some of them were really fast.

In design technology we have been exploring wheels and axels.  We have explored different mechanisms and designed and evaluated our own cars.

We have loved reading Beegu and here we are re-writing the story from her point of view.

We are independently using resources to help us improve our writing!

We have had a fun day taking part in the NSPCC Number day.  We started our day solving number puzzles and going on a number hunt.  We then had to help Mr Birkett sort her bag of toys.  What a mess.  We arranged the toys and created a pictograms.  After that we created pictograms on the iPads and compared and interpreted the data.

Finally we ended our day reading the story of Jim and the Beanstalk by Raymond Briggs.

We measured our hands and feet using a ruler and compared and sequenced the size of our hands and feet.

What a great day
