Escape from Pompeii







Class 11 have worked incredibly hard this week to uplevel their vocabulary linked to our class text, Escape from Pompeii.

Using this vocabulary, the children have then worked collaboratively to create their own poetry chants for when Pompeii has an earthquake tremor- similar to what they have read in the book.

Follow the links to see what some of the children in Class 11 have created, and watch them perform using lots of theatrical action and expression!

Jak, The Historian!

Here is our super star Jak showing off his absolutely amazing homework! I’m so impressed by Jak’s Exploring Eddie and Curious Cleo attitude towards our new theme!

Jak went to the local library on Thursday after school to undertake his own research on the history of the Titanic, and print off the information so that he could share it with our class.

Also, just to be even more of a superstar, Jak has drawn and shaded his own Titanic- it’s fantastic!!! AND, Jak has also wrote an information text all about Avalanches!

Huge well done Jak, and keep up the great work! Don’t forget to put all of your housepoints on!

Fantastic French!

In French this week, Class 11 have worked incredibly hard with Mrs Hardman learning how to describe the Titanic using colours and also explain key facts such as when it first set sail and when it sank.

Not only was their writing fantastic, but their drawings were amazing too!

Superstars bien fait!! (Well done superstars!!)

Maths is fun at Green Top!

The Year 5 life skills groups with Mrs Walton used weight and measure to bake cookies in preparation for the following days maths lesson about fractions.

They were rewarded for their hard work by eating the cookies after they divided them into the correct fractions.
