Poetry

We have been learning about poetry, and especially the work of Christina Rossetti, in our English lessons. We have written lots of the poems as a class, small groups, in pairs and independently, using Rossetti's poems as an inspiration. 

Here are a selection:

 

 

What is Pink?

What is pink? A rose is pink,

By the fountains brink.

What is red? Our school cardigan is red,

Soft and warm like a bed.

What is blue? The sky is blue,

Like a waving sea.

What is white? A sheep is white,

Like a fluffy cloud.

What is yellow? The sun is yellow,

Like a flaming fire.

What is green? The grass is green,

Like shining leaves.

What is violet? Lavender is violet,

Growing quickly.

What is orange? Why an orange!

Just an orange!

What is Pink?

What is pink? A rose is pink,

By the fountains brink.

What is red? Blood is red,

The redest red.

What is blue? The sea is blue,

As blue as eyes.

What is white? A marshmallow is white,

Swirling in the light.

What is yellow? A sunflower is yellow,

That dances in the wind.

What is green? A stalk is green,

On a flower waving in the wind.

What is violet? Lavender is violet,

Like a beautiful sunset.

What is orange? Why an orange!

Just an orange!

What is Pink?

What is pink? A rose is pink,

By the fountains brink.

What is red? A drop of blood is red,

Running through your skin.

What is blue? The ocean is blue,

With fish swimming through.

What is white? A pillow is white,

And soft as willow.

What is yellow? The firefly is yellow,

Like a little fellow.

What is green? Leaves are green,

Like emeralds that are clean.

What is orange? Why an orange!

Just an orange!

 

By Isla and Felicity

 

 

 

 

 

 

What is Pink?

What is pink? A rose is pink,

By the fountains brink.

What is red? Our blood is red,

Pumps around in bed.

What is blue? An elephant is blue,

Sucking up water.

What is white? A rubber is white,

So it checks our writings right.

What is orange? Why an orange!

Just an orange

Science Week - Rocks and Soils

Last week we investigated rocks and soils. We discovered how rocks are made, how rocks have different properties, how fossils are formed and what is in soil. A whole class of scientists showed that we can discover so much about the world around us, just by looking.

Poole's Cavern

On Friday 25th November we visited Poole's Cavern and the woodland around it. We had a great time, despite the cold, and learnt plenty to set us up for science week. Check out the photos!

 

Science Week

This week the class spent most of their time in school exploring the subject of 'Forces and Magnets'. Everyone got involved and we discovered lots of fascinating facts. I was very impressed with how all the children worked together and shared their ideas. Five medals were given out on Friday, all for work in science, and on Monday the Science team of the week will be announced!

 

This Week

During our computing lesson, some of the children were asked to write a commet about what we had done in class this week, and what they have enjoyed for this page. Here is some of what they produced:

 

"I've enjoyed maths because there were hard sums and I got them right." - Jessica

 

"I love doing English because we are learning about Tutenkhamen" - Imogen

 

"In the stone age we learnt about cave paintings" - Elsie

 

"I enjoyed the stone age time line" - Harrison

Today was the 100th anniversary of Roald Dahl's birthday, well done to everybody for getting involved! We have started listening to his book 'The Twits'
