This week, in English, we wrote letters of complaint to a holiday company arguing that we didn’t get value for money on a recent holiday we went on. We impressed with our choice of vocabulary, our formal tone and our range of devices to build cohesion within and across the paragraphs, such as fronted adverbials.  

In Maths. we have become mini experts in the written methods of multiplication. Our knowledge on multiplying numbers by 10, 100 and 1000 and our work on our times tables on a weekly basis definitely support us when multiplying numbers!

 

In Art, we started making personal dreamcatchers using materials, such as strings, wool, feathers and beads.

 

In our yoga lesson on Monday, we practised new body postures (curly whirly, sitting stick and the flamingo ones) .

 

On Tuesday, we enjoyed our gymnastics session: we explored different methods of traveling, linking actions in both canon and synchronisation. We worked on and improved our symmetrical and asymmetrical balances.

 

 

We have been learning about how Native Americans communicated to each other using smoke signals. In our science lesson we used lamps and switches in circuits to communicate messages using Morse code. Great teamwork and problem solving!
