In Maths some groups were learning how to calculate bills and figure out best buys. For some calculations we were using calculators and worked in groups. Another group were working on Hire Purchase calculations and will begin to look at Foreign Exchange.
In writing we were creating a reflective piece of writing, based around The Battle of the Somme from WW1. We took notes from videos and footage from the Battle which we used to help us with factual content. Some of the writing was so emotional it made Mrs Browne cry.
In PE we were further developing our handball and benchball skills. Everyone made good progress but Chloe and Jowita showed the greatest improvement.
We created clothes designs for dolls. We had to measure the models and select materials before creating a template to cut material from. The next step is to sew the cut material to create the outfits.
We have been busy getting organised for the busy year ahead. Since we have come back from the Summer holidays we have been discussing values and relating these to our classroom and creating a class charter.
