We learnt about the Gunpowder Plot and why it is important to ‘Remember, Remember the 5th November’. The children told the famous story through drama and a serious of Freeze Frames, which were then thought-tracked.
We have learnt about Remembrance and engaged in the text type: Poetry, as we have read and unpicked some famous poems written during the WW1 and WW2. We have thought about the impact of these poems on the reader and thought about our own preferences in relation to poetry.
In relation to this learning, we had a visit from a Knight on Friday, which then led us to Big Write, where some children chose to write diary entries, some action sequences in relation to our learning.
We will continue to reflect upon the theme ‘Remember’ as we engage in a whole school Remembrance project next week, as well as learning to recite poetry.
We leave the blog today with the important words of Robert Laurence Binyon in his poem ‘For the Fallen’ that Yr3/4 have reflected upon for the Best Book learning:
They shall grow not grow old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.
