This week, in Maths, we have been practising subtracting 4 digit numbers. We were on the look out for mistakes, like subtracting the TOP from the bottom by mistake.
In PE we have been working on our Cricket skills, although, unfortunately we had to go inside because of tremendous rain. In our Games lessons we have been practising our tennis skills. WE were hitting the ball up and controlling it on the racquet. We also played turtle tennis. You have to try to hit an upside down cone with the ball and flip it over the right way to make a turtle. We also played mini tennis which is just rallying but with small hits.
In English this week we have been improving our sentences by adding fronted adverbials. This is were you add a clause to the front of a sentence which tells you more information:
Under the bridge, the misunderstood troll waited for his goat friends.
Searching frantically, Kian hoped it wasn’t too late to save his people.
You have to remember the comma!
On Thursday, we went to Holdenby House to have an evacuee day.” It was fun and we learned loads. The house was massive. It was interesting to see what life was like in the war and compare it with how we live now. I liked singing ‘Run Rabbit Run’. We found out what a soldier had in his kit bag and how they cooked their food by boiling tins in water. Then they used the water to make tea! I liked standing to attention and saluting. We found out about Make Do and Mend. I liked sorting the buttons and making the rag rug. I made a cardboard insole for my shoe and it’s still in there! I liked being in the kitchen and chopping the vegetables for the Woolton Pie. I was amazed when the wedding cake turned out to be a white box! I thought the best bit was going down into the shelter and seeing the picture of the military horse with its gas mask.”
Happy Birthday to Alliyah and Shantel.
Words of the Week: evacuate, evacuee, evacuation
Thought of the bWeek: Books aren’t just made of words…they are filled with places toi visit and people to meet.
