Another busy week and unbeknownst to us a shorter one than anticipated. Hope you are all enjoying the snow!
Maths saw us tackling long division with an attitude of ‘I can do it’ and I can say when, and why I would use it.I am really impressed with you all.
In English, we have continued with our book - Varmint.
This week, the focus has been on narrative, looking at engaging the reader, through story writing.
Children have used devices such as: figurative language, exciting vocabulary, cohesive devices, whilst keeping firmly in mind, the reader. Word choice, has also been a high priority and explored through drama, sound and diologue, encouraging the use of synonyms to up-level work.
Geography – The America’s - see the children planning a holiday! Which might be useful for the summer. Do ask them about their ideas and research (they have been reminded that it is an exercise and not, a reality; rest assured no flights have been booked!) they are taking it very seriously and have BIG plans.
Spanish – saw the children singing all about ordering food and drinks in a café. They continued their rehearsing of phrases and words by completing a crossword and a breakfast survey, all of course in Spanish. Croissants (un croissant) with jam (la mermelada) and tea with milk (un té con leche) proved most popular.
