Finishing our Quilted Squares
Evaluation of My Quilting Project by Nick Ball
I enjoyed the ironing the most because it was satisfying sticking it on.
I found the sewing through my patterns the most difficult because the fabric was thicker than the bondaweb.
I would do neater stitches because my sewing wasn’t very neat.
I’m pretty pleased with my quilted square and I’m excited to see it at the Apple Festival Weekend.

Inference at Chudleigh Knighton.
This week, Alice, Ethan, Rebecca and Daniel attended a reading day at Chudleigh Knighton school. Here are their reports of the day:
Our day at Chudleigh Knighton
On Tuesday the 24th of April, Chudleigh Knighton held a large activity for four children from our school. Each year six got to take part in a range of fun and exciting activities. We read a short paragraph of the book Smith and learnt how to read between the lines to find out more information. We talked with other schools and worked together to find out more about Smith. I enjoyed reading the text and it was a great day. We wrote down words we didn’t understand and searched the meaning. We got to have biscuits too! The day was extremely fun as we got to learn more about different schools in our community and we also got to take home a copy of Smith. Thank you Chudleigh Knighton!!

On Tuesday 24th April 2018 four children from year six went to Chudly knighton for a deep reading day. At the deep reading day we looked at sections from a book called SMITH and we had to use inference to work out who or what SMITH is. In the end me and my group worked out that SMITH is a 12 year old boy who is also a pickpocket .The other year sixes and I enjoyed the deep reading day and leant a lot.
