Another Amazing Alien!

Today we had another of our fantastic Elf Owls bring in an alien that they had created at home! I think you will agree that it looks fabulous. Great effort – Well done 🙂

A fun morning in the Planetarium!

This morning we had a special visitor! Richard from Polestar Planetariums came to our school to put on a special planetarium show! The dome was set up in the hall and we were very excited. We went inside and it was very dark. The show was fantastic and we learnt alot about planets, stars and space!

Problem Solving!

This morning we worked so hard in maths completing some problem solving questions. We needed to use everything that we had learnt about fractions to help us to answer the questions! We all worked really hard and tried our best. Well done Elf Owls 🙂

Fantastic Homework!

These super stars have had a go at designing their own alien for their homework challenge. They are all fabulous and I am so impressed with the effort that you have put in. Well done 🙂

Happy Birthday Queen Elizabeth!

Today we had a great time celebrating the Queen’s 90’th birthday. The Elf Owl’s had a very creative morning making crowns, flags and placemats. This afternoon we had a tea party in the classroom to celebrate! The Elf Owl’s looked fantastic dressed up in clothes from different decades. Well done everybody! I hope you’ve enjoyed this special day 🙂

A big thank you to Mrs Smith for all her help today and for making the buns and sandwiches!

Letters to the Alien Schoolboy!

Earlier this week we received a strange and rather mysterious letter from the Alien Schoolboy! He told us that he had been to visit our planet and he was very confused about what he saw. He asked us lots of questions about our planet and our school. We decided to write back to him to answer his questions. We asked him questions too! We are hoping that he replies to our letters next week! Here are some examples of the excellent letters that the Elf Owl’s have written. We will put more onto the blog next week when the children finish them. Well done everybody!

We have just sent our first tweet on our class twitter page. We have sent a tweet to Ros Asquith the author of our new book ‘Letters from an Alien Schoolboy’. We hope she tweets back! 🙂

Our New Text!

This half term we will be reading ‘Letters from an Alien Schoolboy’ by R.L.Asquith. We read the first few pages last week and we are really enjoying  it. Lots of the work that we will do this half term will be based on the book and we can’t wait to get stuck in 🙂

Place Value

Today we have been looking back at the work that we did at the start of the year on place value.  We used the base ten equipment to represent different 2 digit numbers. We all worked really well together and lots of dojo points were given out for fantastic teamwork. Well done Elf Owls – Keep it up 🙂

Amazing Artwork!

Today we looked at the famous painting ‘A Starry Night’ by the artist Vincent Van Gogh. We looked carefully at the detail in the painting and discussed the style that Van Gogh had used. We then had a go at recreating our own ‘Starry Night’ pictures using different media & materials. Everyone tried so hard and we produced some fantastic artwork. Well done Elf Owls!
