Our wasp killing machines!

This post is a bit late, but when we had our drama day, we all showed how the wasps affected us, then became wasp killing machines!

The Norfolk Show

Look what we saw at the Norfolk Show today! Miss BB was very very excited!

What's in the money box?

Today we have been estimating how much money is in the piggy bank, then counting in 2s, 5s and 10s to check. Some of us played money games and we were very helpful to one another!

Animating our stories!

Today is book character day and Shabba me Whiskers-Miss BB has turned into Mr Gum! We have been enjoying a story by the BBC and have compared it to an iPad story.

Now we are turning our own versions of Jack and the beanstalk into animations! We are using the iPads to do this.

Our story teller

We learned about some different instruments from around the world, then had a scary story from Botswana. It made us jump a lot!

Then we had a story about Anansi. Blythe was the river and Courtney had to collect water for the queen, then Courtney started to dance! The queen then sent Morgan, but he didn't come back either! Next, the queen sent Megan. The river made her dance too! So the queen went to the river herself! She started to dance too!

This afternoon we had a very special person in class with us! The author Robert Crowther showed us his brilliant books and taught us how to make pop ups! We had a good time and gave it the big thumbs up!

Sharing our wasp killing designs!

At the tea time meeting the villagers came back with their designs for killing the wasps. there were some fabulous ideas and the mayor thought that we would get rid of the wasps in no time at all!

The villagers waited for the meeting to begin

Of course the way that we ended up getting rid of the wasps was with a giant jam sandwich!

The first meeting!

The villagers went to the meeting about the wasps, led by the Mayor. They had some ideas about what to do about the wasp problem, but the problem was that they weren't sure whether they had the right things to get rid of the wasps.

The mayor listened carefully to the ideas

After the meeting the villagers went to their workshops to design and create their inventions and ideas. Lots of them had ideas about their inventions based on the jobs that they did.

The villagers and their jobs!

There was lots of sawing, hammering and invention creating going on.




Meanwhile, in the village, the wasps were causing havoc! Look at our 'freeze frame ... action!'
