Our week in the Silver Birches

In the Silver Birches, we have been practising our hockey skills. This week we played a game where we had four people in a team, but we played 3 vs 1. This meant that we had a defender who was trying to get the ball to earn a point. The rest of us had to try to pass the ball to try to stop it being intercepted by the defender.

In History and in Art we have been making cave paintings. We did this by squishing lots of different types of fruits and berries. We used berries to copy what people in the stone age would have done. We also ground up chalk to make white paint. We used a spoon to grind the chalk. We got really messy but it was still fun. 

We have also been writing haikus for our Harvest assembly. Don't forget that a haiku is a poem with three lines; it has to also follow the rule of five syllables, seven syllables and five syllables. As we have been celebrating harvest we have also been bringing in donations for the local Foodbank, which will help local families. We enjoyed our harvest because everyone had something to perform. It was also really lovely having our families in school. 

On Tuesday, we practised our tag rugby skills with Miss Pegler. We also played a game which is called fox and hares. It was extremely enjoyable. We also played a little match. 

In maths we have been solving problems and we have some maths problems to solve in our homelearning this week. 

The ideas for our blog have come from: Arundeep, Harvey, Tyler, Jaiden, Dylan, MJ, Chloe, Millie, Harry, Jemima, Holly, Francesca, Danny, Elise, Cecily, Lexi, Jessica and Myrtilla.
