Canterbury November 2021
We have been very busy in Canterbury Class this month. We have spent time learning about stories that include flashbacks. We have been watching and analysing 'The Piano' by Aidan Gibbs. We spent time learning how to use a range of clause structures and thought about how to retell the story using cohesive devices, expanded noun phrases and a range of higher level punctuation.
In our R.E lessons, we have been learning about the Messiah. We spent time studying different prophecies and identifying what we can learn from these.
During our Science lessons, we have been learning about electricity. We spent time carrying out investigations to support our learning. We made predictions and recorded our results. We used this information to draw conclusions.
In our Maths and Art lessons, we have been studying the art work by William Kandinsky. We used this to create our own pieces of art. We used our knowledge of shape properties to describe our work.
During our CCCS lessons, we have been learning about Benin. We have been using sources to find out about the past. We also found out that the people of Benin made many different kinds of art. Village craft workers made simple pots, weapons and tools. They carved masks for ceremonies and they moulded sculptures of gods out of mud. We then used salt dough to create our own sculptures.
