Welcome to our blog where you can find out what we have been doing in school.
In English this week we have been learning about homophones - words which sound the same but have different meanings. We used our knowledge to think of some jokes that use homophones. Here are our ideas...
What is a cat's favourite remote button?
The paws button!
Why was the sand wet?
Because the sea weed!
What does a sheep's Valentine's card say?
I love ewe!
How does a penguin build its house?
Igloos it together!
Where do cows go on Friday nights?
Why are fish so smart?
Because they live in schools!
What do you call a deer with no eyes?
Why couldn't the unicorn see the sea?
Because it was looking the wrong way!
A bit of word play here:
How did Ada cross the rode?
She road her horse!
And award for the most disgusting joke goes to...
Why did the baker have dirty hands?
Because he kneaded a poo!
We hope our jokes made you smile!
We took advantage of the good weather to get outside to make hedgehog hideaways to keep our prickly friends safe on Bonfire night.
We thought about the best natural materials we could use for building; leaves for a soft bed, sticks for strong walls and camouflage to keep them well hidden.
Fantastic group work and discussion about their creations by everyone. Well done Oak class!
Today Oak class participated in a selection of wellbeing activities to raise awareness of our own and others' mental health. We thought about the things that can affect our emotions and what our superhero powers could be to make us feel happier.
We finished off the day by making yellow photo-booth props and posed in the garden wearing them!
