Class 4 Blog
This week, we are celebrating National Poetry Day with a special 'Take One Poem' day. Class 4 have been working with The Law of the Jungle by Rudyard Kipling. We have learned parts of the poem to perform with a soundscape and musical instruments. Mr Raeburn (Judge the Poet) has led a poetry workshop where we wrote our own poems about the law of the playground, based on Kipling's poem. We have been studying Frida Kahlo (a significant Mexican artist) and we have been creating self-portraits inspired by her work.
We learned poems by heart to perform in collective worship.
We wrote our own poems at home and performed them in collective worship.
This week we have been learning about non-chronological reports. We have been researching elements of our topic and writing information texts about them. Since we have grown in confidence with the features of this text type, we have written non-chronological reports about David Attenborough to support our science learning.
We have been researching the Mexican festival Dia De Los Muertos. We decided to portray the celebratory atmosphere of this event through poetry. We have been learning about new vocabulary as we meet it. This included the words 'solemn' and 'melancholy' and we decided to think of antonyms to include in our poems.
