In Later Years this week we have been revisiting our knowledge of punctuation and parts of speech in Communication work, trying to think of how we can use powerful verbs, adjectives and adverbs in our writing.

In our Maths work we have been revising and extending our knowledge of area and perimeter of regular and irregular shapes and types of measures.

We have continued to refine our art skills with our portraiture work, thinking about shading and positive and negative space. We have also been using Publisher in re-drafting our mini-biographies of our heroes/heroines, by looking at how this format is generally used and treated, relevant content and appropriate style.

We are into our second week of Buddy reading, where older and younger children share reading together. It is wonderful to see all ages of children enjoying different genres of books, listening to each other and being fully immersed in text for a while!
