In English, the children investigated the portmanteau words (words made by two parts of two words together -Romcom) in The Jabberwocky and then created the own, before writing a version of the poem that didn’t contain nonsense.  They then worked in small groups to preform the poem.

Here are the children who volunteered to read out the nonsense poem that they wrote for homework-

During maths this week over the last two weeks the children recapped  their knowledge of charts, graphs and tables. They then moved on to learning to read and draw line graphs.  They finished the unit by learning to read timetables. 

During PSHE, the children drew comic strips to demonstrate a senario or conversation whereby they help a friend who needs support.

The children really enjoyed playing netball again this week.  They played another netball match. Some chose to play a hot seat shooting game.
