On Monday, we finished off typing up our instructions for making a Victoria sponge so that on Tuesday we could start baking. Whilst we were baking our cake, we took photos of each of the stages which were used to make a video from photo-story in Computing. Also, we started to type up our Topic Review – a timeline for the Victorian era. This week in D.A.R.E. we filled in our books and completed all of the unfinished activities. What did you think about this week?

Mrs Howard told me that you found it difficult to share many facts this afternoon to add to our Victorian timeline, so your challenge tonight is to research specific dates during the Victorian period. Can you tell us a notable event for each of the decades that Victoria reigned?
Over the next couple of nights, Miss Warnes and I would like you to post on some mini challenges about different aspects of Victorian life. You can share facts you already know (such as those you’ve learned in school) or you can do some of your own research and share that. There will be rewards for the best posts.
The first challenge is to share what you’ve leaned about how the Victorians entertained themselves.
Was it the same for rich and poor people?
What did adults enjoy?
What did children enjoy?
What there anything similar to today?
For bonus prizes, can you find out what ‘The Great Exhibition’ was?
Remember – put your research into your own words – we will know if it is copied and pasted 🙄
Can you find any GOOD websites/online games to practise converting measurements? I’ve found this one but it’s a bit boring. Can you do any better? Post your links for your classmates to have a go at …
In literacy, we have designed our Jubilee cakes and started typing our instructions . In numeracy we have worked on quadrilaterals and we have been measuring and converting measurements. In RE , we analysed Psalm 23. As we have been working on designing our cakes, Mrs Manning – Ball came to show us different ways to decorate using icing. If we finish our instructions ,we will be baking our cakes on Tuesday…

This afternoon, we had a session with Mrs Manning-Ball looking at different techniques for icing and the use of it in cake decorating in Victorian times. Did anything surprise you? Why? Which of the ideas are you going to include in your design?
This week we have been learning in R.E about how music is used to celebrate different faiths. In numeracy, we’ve been learning about properties of shapes. In literacy, we published our streams of consciousness. In D.T we sampled cake, made tally charts and wrote our design specification.
Don’t forget, we need to finish any incomplete work for DARE
Think about the work we’ve been doing on adverbs. Can you use any in a sentence about this picture?
How many responses will we get to this one, I wonder…
I am a concave polygon. I have 4 sides and no pairs of parallel lines. I have1 reflex angle. What shape am I?
I promised I I would set a challenge tonight, so here it is:
I am a polygon. I have 4 sides, 2 right angles and one pair of parallel sides. What am I?
I’ll publish your posts in half an hour and set another. I wonder how many of you will respond…
