December 2021

This month, Gibraltar class have continued to work hard to develop our growing skills in a range of areas. We hope that you enjoy looking at some of our super work.



In English, we have been using some visual literacy clips to inspire our writing. Our favourite clip was Mog’s Christmas Calamity – we analysed how we can learn about a character from his actions and how dialogue can help tell the reader more about a character. Following this we retold the story using cohesive devices, expanded noun phrases and a range of higher level punctuation.







In maths, we have been learning about 3D shapes. We reviewed their many properties and practiced using nets to create some 3D shapes of our own with a Christmas theme.



Art and Music

In class we listened to a famous piece of music - the dance of the sugar plum fairy by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky- that is traditionally linked to Christmas. We discussed how the music makes us feel and the images we picture when we hear this. We considered the differences between a composer and a musician and then we created a piece of artwork based on a ballerina.
