This week’s learning log

This week’s task is to write a diary entry from a child who has just heard that World War II has started.

Remember a diary entry needs to be written in the first person (I, we) and in the past tense (I did, I saw etc). It can be informal as it is personal to you.

Here is a great example of a World War II diary from another school:

World War II topic

We are now well in to our World War II topic. We have already read ‘Dear Mum, I Miss You!’ and are now reading ‘Goodnight Mr Tom’. We have also listened to broadcasts made at the time war broke out. Here are a couple of useful links where you can do some of your own research:

Carnival masks

Class 4a Carnival Masks! on PhotoPeach

We’ve been really busy for the last few weeks making carnival masks. We started with pieces of cardboard cut into a mask shape, then moulded a face shape using PVA glue, water and toilet roll. We then covered the whole thing with mod roc. We left them for a few days to dry and then painted them with metallic paints. Finally we added the feathers and glitter to make them really colourful and sparkly.

We hope you like them!

Rainforest or Carnival?

This half term we have been learning about Brazil. We started off by transofrming class 4a into an aeroplane and we flew to Brazil. On the way we saw some of the sites and sounds of Brazil on this video:

If you could visit Brazil what would you like to see?
