This week we have been learning about figurative language which we are going to include in our descriptive writing. We learnt about similes, metaphors and personification as well as onomatopoeia and worked in groups to practise using these techniques. We also used our novel study book ‘Kensuke’s Kingdom’ to find examples of descriptive language.
Mrs Magirr set us a challenge to find the cubed numbers for 1 to 6 cubed. We worked in groups to make cubes and find the answers!
In Science we have been learning all about the life cycle of a plant.
We created an experiment to see what plants needed to grow and have grown our own cress.
We tried our own cress sandwiches and some liked it more than others!
In Sycamore class, we have been learning about why Hadrian’s Wall was built, how it helped the Roman’s and kept the Picts out. We had great fun!
