In English this week we have recapped prepositional phrases that are used as adjectives and adverbs. We have also been thinking carefully about the purpose of editing work and we have talked about key next steps to always look for. Later in the week, we started to look at the features of informal letters. We talked about what the purpose of an informal letter might be and how it is different to a formal letter. We also read a few examples of informal letters. Next week we will be writing our own informal letter from Barney to his parents. We have continued to read a little more of ‘Stig of the Dump’, we have been reading about the tribal party that the children find themselves at and we have looked closely at the speech that Lou makes. Today, we started to write our own speeches in our working groups. We will be continuing with these next week.
In maths, we have continued to work on time. We have been learning about the 12 hour and 24 hour clock and have been converting unit of time. Please continue to take any opportunities at home for children to tell the time and you could now ask what the time is in the 24 hour clock.
Today we learnt about the NHS and why it was created. We found out that the government at the time felt that it was important for all people in the UK to be able to access free health care.
There have been various events for us to enjoy this week- a poet called James Carter came in on Tuesday for an assembly and we have been to both the violin and clarinet concerts. Well done to everyone who performed at the Music and Poetry evening.
