Weekly Update (Week ending 22.03.19)
This week we have been looking at Biographies and Autobiographies in English, focusing on the differences and similarities between the two. We have also been learning about the differences between fact and opinion in writing, ready to write our own biographies about a famous person next week. We have been brilliant mathematicians over the last few days. I'm really proud of our perseverance with fractions and are now confident in ordering and comparing normal, mixed number and improper fractions. Even Mrs Burman, who popped in on Friday's lesson, commented on how impressed she was with our attitude to learning in maths.
Our papier-mâché Tudor houses are coming along brilliantly (apologies for paste coated uniforms on Tuesday). We have started to look at European explorers in Geography and will continue to do so in the forthcoming weeks.
