Today Toucans visited the North Pole and the South Pole! Have a look at our video and see what we found out..
Of course we never really visited the Poles – they are too far away and too cold! In our Computing lessons we have been learning how to search for and save images. We have also been working on our acting and presentation skills.
We made our own reports and Mr Baddhan helped us to use the green screen to make it look like we really visited the North and South Pole. Do you think we did a good job?
In our English lessons this week we are learning about recounts. We have also been learning about the Great Fire of London so we read a recount of the fire: Samuel Pepys’ diary. We learnt lots of new facts about the fire but we also learnt a lot about what a recount is!
In History today we focused on the vocabulary connected to the Great Fire of London. We recalled the facts we learnt last week then picked out new facts from a report we had read. We then learnt some new vocabulary and practiced matching them to definitions. We are going to be using these words a lot over the next few weeks!
This afternoon Toucans had a wonderful workshop all about the Great Fire of London.
This is what we learnt:
This is what we enjoyed:
Ryan – I enjoyed being the King of London!
