R Charlesworth: March 2019
Oh my goodness- where is this year going? Another super term had by all- all finished off with a glorious day in the sunshine!
In English, this week, we have linked our writing with some science learning, we have written scientific explanations of the winter solstice focusing on our use of grammar and punctuation. We have thought carefully about how we can control and manipulate this to inform and have an impact on the reader. We then managed to look at how we can remove our usual rules and we created poems based upon this theme, too, which really were fantastic.
In maths we have been developing our reasoning skills, thinking carefully about how we can apply our super arithmetic skills to more difficult problems. We have been working in teams — working very hard and being very focused; well done everyone.
This week we also did some herbal-tea tasting, which was great fun! We tried: peppermint, chamomile , ginger and honey, nettle and liquorice. The class were quite split in their opinions but the most popular was...nettle! We will be using our work on this to investigate herbal remedies and to create some interesting writing.
I hope you all have a great holiday. See you in two weeks!
