July 11, 2017: Odysseus and Penelope
Last week class7 were looking at the painting 'Penelope with the Suitors", and producing some artwork based on the painting. In addition to the artwork, they also learnt about the character Penelope and her husband Odysseus. They discovered that Odysseus had been fighting in the Trojan war, and was trying to get back home but had been delayed by the actions of the Greek Gods. The class created postcards from Odysseus to Penelope explaining the delay in returning, and also one of the children took on the role of Zeus and explained why the Gods were trying to stop Odysseus.

June 17, 2017: English Research Booklets
In our English lessons this week we have been looking at how to take notes from a range of sources, and then produce our own detailed information texts. Everyone in class has produced amazing detailed booklets - including a content page and a glossary - like the example shown below.

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.

November 12, 2015: Eggceptional Project Work
After discovering a strange egg in the quiet area on Monday morning, class 7 have spent the week investigating just what it could be, and how it got here. During the week we have been exploring the playground looking for clues, reading through books researching information, and looking at the video from our bird table webcam to try and work out just what has been going on. Everything we have discovered, researched and seen has been recorded in project booklets. Here is just one of their project booklets; Brilliant work from everyone in class, and a great weeks worth of creative thinking and writing. Well done everyone.
