Over the past few weeks, Year 3/4 have been drafting a new chapter for The Twits. We have been learning about inverted commas and how to use them properly to punctuate direct speech. Class 8 enjoyed a drama lesson inventing a brand new trick for the chapter. We then voted for our favourite trick and this was used as the trick in our own chapter. The winner was making a pizza with hot chilli sauce!
Last Friday, Classes 7 and 8 went on a trip to Segedunum Roman Fort as part of our History topic. They had a fantastic, activity-packed day. The classes split into two and completed different workshops throughout the visit. The workshops included: learning how to be a Roman soldier (including Roman shields, dressing up and following commands), finding out the difference between Roman homes and Iron Age homes (we had a go of building them), making Roman medicine and creating Roman brooches. We also had a visit to the gift shop during the day. As always, our children were fantastic ambassadors for West Boldon Primary.
This term we will hear all about Mr. and Mrs. Twit’s disgusting habits including playing awful tricks on each other and eating mouldy food out of beards.
The children will be exploring the character of Mr. Twit; writing a character description. They will become detectives to write a police report and newspaper reporters to write about the end of the story. Year 3/4 will also write a letter; expressing their concerns about the poor monkeys locked up in cages in the Twit’s back garden. They will also enjoy coming up with their own tricks to play on Mr. and Mrs. Twit.
