A busy but enjoyable week. In Literacy, we looked at ‘Discussion’ and learnt how to distinguish arguments that are ‘for’ and ‘against’ a cause. In Maths, we completed our ‘Position and Direction’ unit and have since moved onto ‘Decimals’. We started our new Science unit – ‘Evolution and Inheritance’ and to help us later compare we studied the Creation story from the Christian and Islamic faith. We had a fun Music session where we compared two songs and their features and in IT we continued with our ‘Programming’ topic. Friday was predominantly PSHE led and we had a talk from a couple of students from Shrewsbury College about how to keep healthy – this linked well to our previous term’s Science.
Thank you for helping your child with the completion of their homework or ensuring they devote time to complete it. We marked it on Friday and I have set more (a similar amount) for completion next Friday.
Have a super weekend and I look forward to seeing you on Thursday, from 2:50pm-3:10pm, if you can spare the time to visit the class to read with your child.
