## This week and last in P7/6

Nadia: ‘We learned about vegetables in French and did comprehension tasks on our book, ‘The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas.’ We also did plenty of maths and literacy. We marked our writing, read lots and met our buddies!’

Evie: ‘We have done lots of decimals in maths, literacy and reading our books. We wrote letters as evacuees to our parents.’

Ollie: ‘We looked at the story of St Therese of Lisieux and looked at tenths, hundredths and thousandths in maths.’

P7/6 also learned of the story of Jesus healing the paralysed man and learned our first couple of basic steps in our 1940’s style jive dance.

Have a great weekend!
