Our new text is The Twits by Roald Dahl.
We have had great fun finding out about the gruesome Mr Twit. Can you write an amazing character description of him? Remember to include adjectives, conjunctions, super sentence openers and a range of punctuation.

We had an amazing visit to Bewdley Museum.
We were lucky to go on 11th November and this meant we took part in a remembrance service. We met Derek who was evacuated at just 11 years old. We asked him questions to help us explore the past. We visited an Anderson shelter and even had a go at putting out bombs! Don’t worry it was just pretend. We have loved exploring artefacts to learn more about history.
Our new text arrived in class today. We looked at the front cover carefully and discussed what we could see. We thought of lots of interesting questions such as:
Why not take a look at the cover with your grown-ups and think of some questions together? What do you predict this book will be about?
If you would like to write a story about these characters at home, we would love to read them.
We have begun to learn about coding this week including what algorithms are.
If u would like to have a go at home, you can use Scratch Chat for free by following this link: https://scratch.mit.edu/
Or if you have an iPad you can install Hopscotch and begin to code simple games.
Both of these are used in school and are free!
The children have settled well into their new classes and have already produced some fantastic work.
We have enjoyed reading ‘Mrs Armitage on Wheels"’ over the last couple of weeks. Click on the video below to hear the story. Can you write your own version? We would love to hear them.
