March 29, 2017: Our Limericks
This week we've been trying to make our own limericks. It's not as easy as we thought it would be because we needed to think about how many syllables are on each line, which words could rhyme with other words and also try to keep to a rhythm throughout the whole limerick. Kiya-Mae worked on a limerick about an old man and created this; There once was a very old man, Who lived in a terrible van. The metal got rusty, And then very dusty, Which gave him a terrible tan! Omari created one about a young girl; There once was a very young girl, Whose hair she always did curl. She thought it looked nice, But was covered in lice, Which made everyone else want to hurl! And the whole class worked together to create one about a young boy; There once was a very young boy, All he liked to do was destroy. He broke his own boat, And the TV remote, Until he had run out of toys.

March 23, 2017: Storm Tanka
We're learning about Tanka style poems in our English lesson today, and we have worked together as a class to create our first attempt at one. Here's Class 7's "Storm Tanka"; Sky turning dark black, Clouds start rolling in quickly, Stillness all around, Suddenly rain hammers down, Thunder and lightning begins.

March 15, 2017: Folds and tabs
As part of class 7's geography work this week we've been looking at the inside of mountains. They have made their own 3D volcano model with removable section to show the magma chamber, conduit and layers of lava and ash inside.

February 20, 2017: Volcano Day
After weeks and weeks of construction, today we made our volcanoes erupt using water, washing liquid, red paint, bicarbonate of soda and vinegar. We had great fun watching each volcano bubble up and burst over the side of the crater. In fact, we had so much fun we thought we'd turn the eruption into a video using iMovie, a SpecialFX app, and a greenscreen app.

February 9, 2017: String Sounds
What can you do with some plastic cups, and a big ball of string? Well, class7 went outside to do some science with them, and learnt more about sounds. How could a child all the way over the other side of the yard hear what we were saying quietly?

February 6, 2017: Various volcanoes
In our DT lessons we have been building volcanoes. We started with a crater made of a plastic bottle with a yoghurt pot in the top of it, and then added scrunched up newspaper around the bottle to make a mountain shape. Then we papier-mached strips of paper over the scrunched up newspaper to smooth down the sides of the mountains before painting the mountain black and adding some red paint for lava effects. To complete our project, during the next lesson the children will be placing vinegar and baking soda in their 'crater' and watching as their volcano "erupts".

January 29, 2017: 2DIY Mountains Quiz
At home, Jacob created a brilliant online 2DIY quiz based on the geography work we have been studying in class. How well do you know your mountains of the world?
