Unbelievably, we are now 30% of the way through this school year – the time is flying!
We have had a busy week – it started with more work based around ‘The Highwayman’ narrative poem. Over the week we have reviewed the chronology of the story, we’ve looked at grammar associated with the poem (namely similes and metaphors) and we have studied the characters in detail. We will look at how the story could have ended differently next week and we will create some drama sketches.
In maths, we made real headway with adding and subtracting fractions and we ended the week looking at how to multiply fractions. We will complete our fraction unit soon; I plan to do some fun Christmas maths in the final week of term.
We spent a good part of Friday writing and creating anti-bullying clips. We looked at how perspectives change in PSHE and RE and in History we looked at how we can tell what happened around 3000 years ago when any written work on paper etc would have eroded and been destroyed over the time.
The children had their normal PE lesson on Wednesday and we had our extra session on Monday – this will continue until the end of the term.
The children learnt more about online safety and they are better armed to block and ignore comments that offend or that might be inappropriate.
I hope you have a great weekend.
