This week in Class 8 we have begun our new topic World War One. 

We have discussed how the war started and created a newspaper article about the assassination of Franz Ferdinand. We have also been looking at the work of the famous war artist Paul Nash, particularly the paining ‘We are making a new world’. Tomorrow in art we are going to have a go at recreating this. We are looking forward to learning lots more about the war throughout our topic. 

We have been busy making poppies as part of our whole school display:


Our homework this week was to create a 3D poppy at home. Daniel has done a super job of this and was very proud of his poppy – it even earned him a Headteacher award!

This week we have also finished reading our class novel The Boy in the Dress by David Walliams.
“This book made me laugh, I like the part where Dennis put a dress on to go to school,” said Letitia.
“This was a funny book and my favourite part was the end when Dennis’ Dad was nice to him,” said Lennon.

In maths we have been very competitive with our Big Maths Beat that and we have a class leader board to see who can beat their scores and continue to improve.
