Class 3

Exploring paint

​​​​​​​We had lots of fun exploring different painting tools. 

We became archaeologists....

 

Last week we had to search our school for historical artefacts. We found some cave paintings, as well as lots of other unknown items. By asking our own questions we found out about the stone age.

Take a look at our awesome poems based on Macavity, the Mystery Cat by T. S. Eliot

Arrthur the sailing cat

Arrthurs a sailing cat he’s called the pirate claw.

For he’s the pirate captain who can do so much more.

He’s the bafflement of other ships, the conquer of the water.

For when you see an empty ship, Arthur is there!

 

Arrthur Arrthur always sailing seas,

You hardly ever see him for he’s sailing with the breeze.

Arrthur Arrthur never off the water

For he’s secretly stealing sons and daughters.

 

Arrthur Arrthur boots as black as coal

Even darker then a black hole

Arrthur is a ginger cat hes tall and fin

Arrthur has a very small chin

Arrthurs head is domed

He loves his whiskers to be combed.

 

He’s very sharing (they say he’s the best at finding gold)

If you barging him it will never be sold.

Arrthur is tactical,

Also can be practical.

Arrthur loves to be a joker,

Did you know he’s really good at poker?

Arrthur has a crew of five,

They all can beat a bee hive.

 

Arrthur Arrthur he is best

Everyone knows he’s better than the rest

You know him if you saw him

Because his gold is not slim

 

If you went on a ship,

be careful you might take a dip.

His sword is sharp as a nail,

Arrthur is not as slow as a snail.

 

But whenever you see a ship,

Arrthur is there!!!

Romero the Archaeologist cat

Martha Sowerby

Romero’s an archaeologist cat; he’s called the master digger

For he’s a mini Einstein, his brain is so much bigger

He is super sensible; he always does what he’s told

Even when he’s in a hole, especially digging for gold

You will know him if you see him, for there will always be a breeze

And you will always catch him saying thank you and please

 

His fur is rough and spiky, he’s a tabby cat

He’s very tall and wide, he is rather fat

His big blue eyes are covered in mud

And when you see him walking you will always hear a thud

 

He’s confident in maths, [they say he’s the human sum]

And he’s good at music, he can play the drum

He loves going to school, he especially likes homework

He has a lot of friends but sometimes he’s a jerk

He hasn’t got much family but he loves his mum and dad

They are very kind; he has a sibling that is a lad

You will know him if you see him, for there will always be a breeze

And you will always catch him saying thank you and please

 

Romero, Romero there’s no one like Romero

He’s a handsome clever cat

And on his head he wears a top hat

You will know him if you see him, for there will always be a breeze

And you will always catch him saying thank you and please

We have been studying the character of the Demon Headmaster. We drew what we thought he looked like based on the story and then wrote character descriptions.

These are some of our exciting sentences.

 

"His face was white and his cloak black, making him look like a magpie."

 

"He wears clothes as dark as midnight."

 

"He was as thin as a pencil."
