Birds and Brilliant (and so is home learning!)
I have had a great time at school this week and I really hope you have too. We have been able to get stuck in to our sculpture work in art and the birds are beginning to actually look like birds (even if apparently they're supposed to be able to carry rugby balls!). We've even been able to sneak in a few mythical creatures for good measure.
Literacy Home Learning
This week we have begun to learn about the way different groups of people were treated during World War II. Now I would like you to think about which areas of WWII you would like to know more about. So:
1) Create a list of 10 questions you would like to find out the answers to over the next few weeks and email them to me.
2) Select two of the questions and begin to research the answers independently. Present your research in note form using mind maps, lists, tables or any other form you find useful for keeping your notes organised. Handwritten please.
Maths Home Learning
To support the work we have been doing on percentages this week, I have set a linked task using MyMaths. Remember that MyMaths allows you the opportunity to revise a topic and attempt the problems again. Have fun!
Following our visit from Allison Burden, who gave a wonderful talk about refugeesm we are launching a writing competition in response to Friday’s lesson.
Theme: "Life in Dadaab Refugee Camp."
You can write in an genre (e.g. story, diary, poem, report, persuasive etc…) but all entries must be a maximum of 500 words. I can't wait to see how interesting, detailed and creative you can be. All entries muust be submitted to Mrs Kelly (firstname.lastname@example.org) by Friday 25th November. Details can be found here.
