This week we have read our next chapter of our text, Friend or Foe, and have been working on some comprehension skills, including our use of a dictionary to find the meanings of words and our understanding of the language used in the text. We have started to think about our next piece of writing which will be a character description. We’ve spent lots of time looking at what a good description looks like and the different descriptive devices that you can use to describe, including show don’t tell! This is also focus for this week’s English homework.


We have been working with negative numbers in different contexts this week, using them to solve problems and we are working on explaining our answers with a justification or an example. We have moved on to adding and subtracting whole numbers including carrying across columns. We have worked on our speed and accuracy with our mental and written methods.


In RE this week we have discussed what we perceive as a ‘perfect world’. We have talked about what Jesus meant when he taught about the Kingdom of God and we have compared what we think that may have looked like to what we would want our Kingdom to look like.


In our art work this week we have been exploring the use of different media to draw with and how we can use these to create different effects, including shading and smudging. We will be creating our own WW2 line drawing using charcoal, pencil, graphite pencils and pastels.


In PE we have been working on our Tag Rugby skills and working as a team. We have made sure that we communicate effectively with our team players so that we can work together as ants!
