Bluebirds love their new class story called The Lost Happy Endings by Carol Ann Duffy. This week they have been busy looking at the features and picking apart the text, finding examples of adjectives, similes and personification. The class realised this effective vocabulary entertained the reader.
Later in the week, Bluebirds compared the plot of The Lost Happy Endings to other well known fairytales and mapped out the five parts of the stories. Today, the children have throughly enjoyed writing unhappy endings to well known fairy tales. There were some very imaginative ideas!
This week, Bluebirds had an online safety lesson to understand how to create a powerful word. They chose their favourite colour, number and food. The children combined these with symbols, using upper and lower case letters, to create an effective password, longer than 8 digits.
This week, Bluebirds had fun examining some Egyptian artefacts. They also looked at some photos (secondary sources of evidence). The class answered questions about what they could tell about Egyptian life such as:
What do you think this item could be?
What do you think it was used for?
What is it made from?
What does this tell us about Egyptians?
Finally, the children were very excited to see a sarcophagus complete with a mummy inside!
Bluebirds heard the story of The Black Stone today, to understand that Muslims believe in being fair and just. Afterwards, Mrs Parry asked the class to think how to share 4 cakes between six people. Leah quickly solved the mystery that each person would get 2/3 of cake each!
