Today some of us in class 2 used coding to go up the northwest passageway that Willian Baffin took to discover his island. We moved our device up the passageway until we completed his journey.

What do you think William Baffin took with him?

Today we’ve been making our own shields using different materials. We have used different coloured foil, crayons, fabric and lots of other materials to make them stand out. What material would you use to make your shield?

Planning our factfile

We have been historians in literacy this week. We have been researching facts about Alexander Bell or Thomas Edison. Tomorrow we are going to be creating our own fact files about these inventors. Did you know that Thomas Edison invented the lightbulb, and Alexander Bell invented the telephone, making the first ever phone call! We used key words in our plan ready for writing them into sentences tomorrow.

What inventors do you know?

Today we acted out the Battle of Hastings to help us write a recount. We explored using temporal connectives such as ‘then’, ‘next’ and ‘finally’ to help us sequence the story. Do you know what happened in the Battle of Hastings?
