Giant’s necklace

We are reading the book ‘The Giants necklace’ which is by Michael Morpurgo. We are answering questions after we have read some chapters. It is a really good book so far and we recommend it to people to read. This is a summary:

 

‘It all began with a necklace, made of glistening pink cowrie shells. A long, long necklace that had taken Cherry days – weeks – of careful, painstaking work. It was nearly complete, and Cherry was determined it would be the longest necklace she had ever made; that it would be fit for a giant! But the end of the holidays had arrived. ‘You’ve only got today, Cherry’, said her mother. ‘Just today, that’s all’. Cherry didn’t mind, a day would be enough – she only needed a few more shells. So, amidst the taunts of her older brothers, she set out to search for them. Then the clouds grew dark and the waves grew large, and as the storm blew in, Cherry realised, to her horror, that she was cut off from the shore. From then on, events began to take a decidedly dark turn. One from which there was no turning back….’

 

Maths

We have new KIRFS which include different formulas for areas of circles for example. We did a lot of revision and practice for our maths SATs papers to help us feel confident.

 

SPAG 9 O clock work

For 9 o clock work this week we have been doing practice SPAG questions and talking through our answers.

 

Special Assembly

Mrs Crisell did a very special assembly about climate change. We learnt about the inspiring Greta Thurnburg and what she is inspiring people and politicians all over the world to make changes to protect the world from climate change. Over 70 countries are listening to her message and speeches. She has spoken to important people all over the world and she is only 16 years old. She is also autistic and used to find talking very very difficult so what she is doing is extra amazing.

In school we are going to be learning and thinking about climate change and how we impact the world and how we can make it better.

 

Bed Race Art

RTS have got a team running in the Knaresborough bed race. We have been helping them decorate the bed. We have each been given a square piece of fabric and have drawn and painted a design on it to do with Yorkshire. They are going to put together so it is like a patchwork quilt.
