Welcome to Milne Class

Milne Newsletter Term 5 2018

Milne class children became vocabulary detectives using words from our Power of Reading text ‘Varjak Paw’. They used a dictionary to look up the meaning of unknown words and then used these words in their own sentences about Varjak Paw.  We hope you like them.

To conclude their study on Rocks and Soils Milne class walked to St Martins church to explore the building materials used to build the church.  They explored in and around the church and answered questions relating to the building.

On Monday 14th March KS2 were visited by Space Fund who perform Space science and engineering shows for primary school children.  They came to present a show to the children on space travel and robots (and coding etc.).  After the show Milne class participated in some follow up activities on the presentation.

In class we explored space travel and discussed organising and planning a trip to Mars. Here are some examples of this work.

Milne Class has been reading the book Ug and his search for soft trousers by Raymond Briggs.  We have been creating our own comic strip scenes like in the book.  We’ve been drawing illustrations and writing in first person.  We hope you like them.

Moon Poems By Milne Class

 

The Moon

Magical moon floating in space,

Out in the open circling the earth,

Over the stars it goes,

Never-ending journey.

 

By Ciaran Bowden

 

 

Moon Man

Who is that in the sky?

It’s the moon man gazing down.

He’s a satisfying sphere,

Who never gives up his journey.

 

By Ollie Scott

 

 

Dark Journey

Moon never stops spinning

He continues to fly

Glimpse of the shimmering moon

He goes on and on and on.

 

By Mukundi Chitongo

 

Moon Man

Moon man don’t give up shining

Oh you are the best

Over the ocean you travel

Now come with me.

Moon man take me with you

Oh shine so bright

On the gigantic ocean

Never give up Moon Man.

 

By Chantelle Dalton

 

Moon Shining

Moon shines up in the sky

Out in the starry night

Over the world and stares

Never stops shining bright.

 

By Zoey Crone

 

 

 

 

Moon

Staring down, watching, waiting.

As if he has always been there, watching, waiting.

Orbiting the earths lands and sea, watching, waiting.

Staring at space, at nothingness, watching, waiting.

Will it ever stop?

No-one knows……………..

 

By Alex Carter

 

Collage  

With the help of Mrs Murray Milne Class have been creating collages with organic shapes they drew and cut around.  Like Matisse they have used bright colours and they have also used contrasting colours. What do they remind you of?

Milne Class thoroughly enjoyed participating in Harry Potter Day this week.  They participated in a range of activities including creating a new character, maths potion making and making broomstick book marks.  A HUGE thanks to all the parents for your time and effort on the children’s outfits.

On Tuesday 14th November 2014 Milne Class visited Lullingstone Country Park to participate in some outdoor learning activities. The children wrote poems, built habitats for a given woodlands creature and then created advertisements to sell that habitat.  They then drank hot chocolate by the camp fire.  We all had an amazing time.  HUGE thanks to the parents for sorting travel to the park and the parents who stayed with us for the day.

Winnie the Pooh style stories by Milne Class

(excerpts)

Zara Foster-Young

In the forest there was a magic house and in the house lived Daisy the lazy ladybug and her friend webby Debby the spider.  One day they were having fun when a dark blue fly started bothering them.  They were trying to run away from it.

“My name is the EVIL FLY!” said the fly.  They were shocked.

Then Daisy the lazy lady bug ran home to watch TV.  She was so lazy!

 

Ciaran Bowden

One day there was a spider called Webby Debby the Spider (most people call her Debby).  Anyway, she was extremely clever and liked to play the piano.  She liked to play soft songs with high notes.

She has friends like: Bella the butterfly and Daisy the lazy ladybird.

She has enemies like: The evil fly and Grace the Goblin.

She lives on a bristly thorny tree.  She lived in some buckets with some other insects.  There were spindly trees and a spider infested village nearby.

 

 

Zoey Crone

There was once a log of doom.  It was magic, deep and damp and Busy the bee lived there.  One day he was bad tempered because he lost his honey cake book.  So his friend Bunny Boo helped him to find it.  They started at Bunny Boo’s house and found that Bunny Boo had the book the entire time.  Busy the bee was happy and he went to sit on the grass as the sun went down.

The children in Milne class are doing cross country this term for PE.  They have been warming up by playing games and learning techniques for long distance running and relay races.

In Milne class we participate in Guided Reading activities every day.  These activities are completed on a carousel rota so we all get to do each activity at some time through the week.

Activities are:

  1. Reading independently or with a teacher/TA.
  2. Completing a Grammar sheet or Comprehension.
  3. Story writing in Writing Journals or something similar.

Milne class spent some of the morning exploring the school woodlands for setting and character inspiration for their ‘Winnie the Pooh’ stories.  The children developed their descriptive vocabulary and discussed story lines while in the woods.  Keep an eye out on our class page in the coming weeks for the children’s stories.
