Forest School

This half term, we have started Forest School outside in the quad with Mrs Lewis.

We have only had two sessions so far but already we are really enjoying it and settled.

‘Last time, I had great fun jumping in the muddy puddles with my friends’.

We always play a game at the start of every session.  One of the games is called bat and moth’.

We also have done an experiment.’

We have make fires, have biscuits and hot chocolates’.

Mrs Lewis gave us some tea.  Lots of us thought it was disgusting because it was peach and orange flavour’.

Do you think it looks fun?

Keeping fit at school!

This half term, we have been having short breaks in between our learning to make sure that we have kept fit and active.

Timber is my favourite because I like all the dance moves’.

I think it’s good to do this because I am not shy anymore about dancing in front of people’.

I like Timber because there are lots of crazy dance moves’.

I love who let the dogs out because it makes me tired when I have finished dancing’.

The Sheffield Children’s Book Awards 2017

book awards book awards2book awards234book awards23

On Friday, some of us went to the Sheffield Children’s Book Awards with Miss Robertson and Miss Elliott.

Sheffield Children’s Book Awards were launched in 1988 to encourage children and young people to read, and to highlight the best literature published each year. The awards celebrate books and what they do for the Sheffield Community. Hundreds of children from across the city take part every year by voting for their favourite book through local schools and libraries.

The overall winner of the Sheffield Children’s Book Award 2017 was ‘Nibbles the Book Monster’ by Emma Yarlett.

I enjoyed the Sheffield Children’s Book Awards because we got to see all of the authors who wrote the books and I haven’t really met any authors before’.

I really liked it because I got to see lots of different types of books and we met the Mayor of Sheffield.  She announced the winning book from the book awards’.

Using prepositional phrases

This morning, Miss Frith had an email from Sarah who works with someone in our class.  She asked if we could have a go at creating sentences in a different way.  We were all excited to do this because it looked like a fun activity.  We used colours and pictures to represent our words and made a sentence using different colours.

Miss Frith taught us about prepositional phrases before we went to tables to have a good go.

Prepositional phrases were green, adjectives were light blue, nouns were dark blue, words like the, a and an were pink and verbs were orange.

Can you spot the different words in these sentences with adverbial phrases?

Some of us moved onto an extra challenge!  Some of us had to use prepositional phrases at the end of sentences, some of us had to use them at the beginning and some of us had to use adverbs.

If a prepositional phrase goes at the beginning of a sentence, you need to use a comma because it doesn’t stand alone as a sentence by itself.  It is extra information.

I loved it because one of the nouns we had to use was a football and I love football.’

I liked it because we got to use different colours to make sentences and I got to do an extra challenge’.

I liked it because it was helping me to understand how to put a sentence together.’

Here are some of the sentences we wrote once we had used the different coloured words to create our sentences:

Minion Cushions

This half term, we have thought about and made minion merchandise.  We decided that cushions would be one of the easiest items for us to make.  We designed them, created prototypes and this week finished making them. 

Here are some of the fantastic finished cushions:

Wider World Week – Uganda and Brazil

Yesterday, as part of Wider World Week, we learnt about Uganda with Mrs Crow.  We learnt lots about Uganda as Mrs Crow visited there before she started teaching at Wybourn.  We tasted plantains and chapatis.  After, we had a go at creating the Ugandan flag using different materials.

Today, we went to Miss Yeardsley’s class and learnt about Brazil.  We made carnival masks.  Here are a few pictures:
