This years theme for Book Week is Inspirational Figures. We have chosen to do Jane Goodall.
Today we have begun by finding out about her through our class book and the Internet. We have plotted her life on a timeline and tomorrow we will use this to write a biography.
We have also visited Oak Class and shared some of their favourite books.
Don’t forget to come to assembly this Friday to find out if we can get Jane Goodall into the ballon by convincing the parents that she is truely inspirational.
Other things this week include the travelling bookshop, the treasure hunt, book swap and second hand book sale.
Yesterday was Safer Internet day and we spent the day discussing how to safely use the Internet and how to make the correct choices.
At the end of the day we made a pledge about what we will do to stay safe.
We are really enjoying our new topic about Rocks and fossils. We have been looking at collections that our friends have brought in and sorting other rocks into different types. We have learnt what igneous, metamorphic and sedimentary mean too.

We looked at images and decided which is good and bad respect
We thought about ways to show respect .
What a brilliant day we had today as part of our ‘We will remember them topic’ the children were transported off and away from their parents and we spent some time thinking about how the evacuees would have felt and what happened to them next.
We heard the air raid siren and hid under our desks for safety.
We made litttle suitcases and filled them with the things that the children would have taken. We then made a start on our soft toys , we Cole ted our materials from the materials rationing shop and used our templates to calculate how much we needed.
We next discussed the ‘Choosing’ which is when the children we send home with different families.
We made feelings graphs to show how this would have felt.
