This week in English, we started learning about war poetry and examined how important it was so people could express themselves, influence others and use it as a coping mechanism through World War One. We examined rhythm and rhyme and wrote our own WW1 poems as if we were on the frontline.
In Maths, we continued practising using the four operations with fractions through different problem solving activities. To consolidate learning, please find this week’s worksheets here: Maths Worksheets Sp1 W3
In STEM, we continued learning about classification keys. We created our own keys to classify different lego pieces, as well as giving them scientific names inspired by Latin, such as Legos Bricus!
