Welcome back to school! After a well – earned rest over the Christmas holidays, we are all happy to be back at school and getting stuck in to our work again.
In English, we are going to be writing a discussion text, so we have been looking at a variety of texts and also holding our own discussions to present two sides of an argument. We held a discussion and wrote about whether we should have school uniform or not and had to come up with some powerful arguments for and against. Next week, we will continue our work on discussion texts.
In Maths, we have been learning about money. We looked at the different notes and coins; recognising, ordering and counting different amounts. We began to add amounts together involving decimals and using a written method. We will continue our work on money next week.
In History, we have begun our work on The Plague in 1665 – 1666. So far, we have talked about the Great Fire of London and discussed the differences between London before the fire and London after. We can’t wait to find out more about what the plague is next week.
