Dumbledore Class 2019-2020

World Book Day!

On Thursday 5th March, we celebrated World Book Day!

We visited four different classrooms where we took part in four different activities all linked to Harry Potter! We completed lots of fun and exciting activities.

We started off with a Science activity linked to a Potions Class at Hogwarts! After this, we completed an English activity linked to different vocabulary used at Hogwarts. We then completed a maths activity linked to co-ordinates on the Marauder's Map. Finally, we completed an Art activity linked to the wonderful scenery of Hogwarts.

A fantastic World Book Day Dumbledore Class! Well done!

In Geography this half term, we have been looking 'How could we get around if technology didn't exist?'. Today, we went on the playground and looked at 4 figure grid references. We had a map of the school and list of different grid references. We used the references and map to find the different letters that were around the school. We had to collect 8 letters in total, the word spelt DISCOVER!

On Monday 3rd February 2020 we had our Reading Cafe Inspire Session, we completed a variety of different activities. We completed a book review, used reading menus to answer questions, read with our parents, used reading dice as well as looking at 'A day in the life of...'. Where we had to write a short diary entry about what it would be like to be the main character within our books.
