This week we have looked at the poetry of WW1 – Rupert Brooke, Jessie Pope, John Mcrae and Wilfred Owen in particular. We have been focusing on understanding the imagery involved, as well as some of the pieces of figurative language. Following on from our visit from Michael Rosen, we will go on to write our own pieces next week – we look forward to sharing these with you.
In more positive news, we are celebrating the girl’s 5/6 football team and their recent victory at the county finals. They have worked really hard as a team in order to come out on top of dozens of teams from schools across the whole of Cambridgeshire and remain undefeated in all of the matches they have played. They now go on to play in the Regional Finals, which will be on a date yet to be confirmed, hosted in London. Well done girls!
In Maths we have been consolidating our understanding of fractions, especially arithmetic problems involving fractions. The sheets for this week can be found here: Maths sheets – Week 5.
