The Twit's by Roald Dahl
We have been reading The Twit's by Roald Dahl. We generated interesting adjectives to describe their house and also used a thesaurus to find some even better words to use in our writing. We have also been writing a character description for Mr. Twit, using ambitious words to describe his appearance, personality and likes and dislikes. Click here to see the children's work.
For maths week, we carried out an investigation to find out which of five different types of paper was the best to use to make a paper aeroplane. We worked in groups and made aeroplanes using printer paper, card, newspaper, tissue paper and sugar paper. We then flew each of the aeroplanes to see which flew the furthest.
We also baked our own biscuits and decorated them using a variety of mathematical symbols. Click here to view the images.
We found out some interesting facts about owls and some other birds. We had the opportunity to look closely at them and to watch them fly. Some of us were even able to have a go at flying the owls. It was amazing to watch! We also found out about some other creatures such as snakes, rats, cockroaches and hedgehogs. We had the chance to touch the snake. It felt smooth and not at all slimy.
