Yesterday, as part of transition, we completed activities based on the learning aliens. One of the tasks was to create a learning alien and decide what type of learning behaviours they would have! I was so impressed with some of the wonderful ideas you all came up with. Here’s a few of my favourites!

We have also been working extremely hard on our passage presentations today in cocoon I. Sharing lots of ideas and discussing our time in year 4 and although we have had the same lesson how different our experiences have still been.
I am so proud of how hard they have all worked today and how much effort they have put into their writing. Here are some snippets of their work today …

Youth Sports Trust have teamed up with TopYa to create an exclusive School Games Active Championship which can be used by pupils and schools.
Three times a week TopYa! Release a challenge for pupils to try. Children practise the challenges, then submit their best video using a mobile device to receive personal coaching feedback from the TopYa! team of experienced virtual coaches. Points are earned for each video submitted, leading to climbing leaderboards and winning prizes!
The TopYa! Active app is committed to online safety and meets rigorous COPPA and GDPR safeguarding standards. No one can communicate within the app. All children can do to communicate with one another is give each other a virtual ‘high-five’, which functions like a social media ‘like’.
The points pupils gain are then tallied up and compared in a league table against other Doncaster schools (in the Rossington School Games Area).
This is completely free and a great way for pupils to be active at home and at school.
I have attached above information from TopYa! And you can also read more on the School Games Website.
You will need the following code which is unique to your school: 22612
Good luck and enjoy!
Today we had Dylan and Oliver who have not been here as of yet on the days we have worked on our product so we set them onto some art work straight away to support bits of writing we had already.
Oliver has done an lovely labelled picture of an aqueduct that’s shows how water was transported.
Dylan is drawing a diagram which shows how the Romans managed to lay their roads so straight by using a certain tool. He was so lovely to watch he measured everything out as he went – true perfectionist! Can’t wait to see the finished product tomorrow.
Well done boys very impressed 🙂
Today we have had out biggest number yet and it was lovely to see. We have been very active today, starting our day off with PE with Joe, then at lunch time we had a little longer playtime as they worked together to share ideas to build a cocoon assault course! Which they have done a brilliant job with too. We are adding more to it tomorrow and we are going to time each of us going round it.
I think Freya’s work speaks for itself. She has thought about what instruments the Romans would used to make music and at what events these instruments would be used at.
Just check out these – I think that’s all I need to say really!
Absolutely amazing and this is just a handful of their work can’t wait to share all final and finished drafts!
All this amazing work and more are all part of our final product for year 3/4 design and building an information Roman website.
Alexsis is today’s learning legend and what a legend she has been. At lunch time she entertained us all in some campfire style stories where we were all able to get involved and play a part too including me! It was fantastic to see all the children getting involved and sharing in the fun and we all had a good time. Thanks Alexsis for sharing your Amazing stories and your enthusiasm was so contagious!
She has also today worked so amazingly hard on what is her 2nd draft and has added water colour to her Roman Temple! I’m so proud of how hard she is working on this for our website product!
I’m going to go with a lightbulb Leo today!
