Our day at St’ James church
Thursday 21st September, we went and to St James’ church to sketch the inside and outside of it. We also met Francis who was alive during WWII and he told us all about his experience in the war.
Then he showed us some plugs and coins from 1930 to 1940.
Before he showed us the plugs and coins, he told us a story about when he heard his first bomb he jumped out of the bath and ran down stairs without a towel!
After that we sketched objects inside the church (such as windows).
We then had a picture with Francis.
Thank you so much St James church for the wonderful morning.

What a great start to the term already!
This week we have been focusing on Roald Dahl. We have looked at one of his books, Going solo, and written our own suspense stories. Below is Josh Miller's, he worked extremely hard and has really captured the punctuation needed to build suspense. Well done Josh!
THE GREEN MAMBA
He took a step forward towards the snake holding the pole out in front of him. He took one more step …two…three .He was now face-to-face with the terrifying black eyed snake. They stared. They didn’t move an inch. Suddenly, like a flash of lighting there was movement. Movement from the snake. He was moving side-to-side getting closer and closer to the snake-man! The snake-man was worried. He raised the pole into the air. And…SMASH…there was a tremendous BANG as the pole hit the snake .He thought the snake was dead. But…
Romeo and Juliet
This week in oak class we have started a new English project on Shakespeare. We are looking into the story of Romeo and Juliet. The children have looked at a crime scene to try and piece together what happened, the prologue for clues as to the ending and even a few Shakespearean insults. Please have a look at some of our work from this week.
As well as revising for SATS , this week we have managed to complete some lovely chalk and pastel pictures of the Blitz. Have a look at our artwork below.
This week Oak class have been to the Devizes Rugby Tournament. We were lucky enough to take two teams. Our A team came first in their group and our B team came fourth in their group. Frankie was also selected as player of the tournament and received a rugby ball and medal. Oak class would like to thank all the adults that took them and the coaches who have spent time coming in and teaching them new techniques.
This week Oak have been looking at saving the planet! We have been writing tweets to try and persuade people to help make a difference.
