In English today, after we finished our unit on Varjak Paw, it was great to have the impromptu round of applause from you all. The unit has led to some excellent discussions regarding the issues that arose in the book and I was as sad as you all were to finish reading it in the end as I would have liked it to have continued! Remember to look out for the sequel -the ‘Outlaw Varjak Paw’ –to find out what happens next to Varjak.
Next week in English and maths, we will be carrying out some assessments during the week in order to identify any areas of your learning in grammar, reading, arithmetic and mathematical reasoning to focus on.
In science, you will be writing up your findings from the mould experiment.
In art, you will be taking digital images of yourselves and each other in order to begin your self-portrait photomontages.
In history we will explore crime and punishment in the Victorian era.
Homework this week is found in the CGP Reading fiction booklet –pages 6 and 7. If you finish these pages please don’t continue on this week, but instead write some of your own questions in a similar style.
Once again, please continue to use Mathletics as much as possible, complete your Maths Records (if you have one) and ensure that you continue to bring them into school every day.
Have a good weekend!
