Although we are spending some time rehearsing for our Choral Christmas performance, normal lessons continue for the most part.
In maths we move on to co-ordinates - nothing beats a game of Battleships to remind the children of how to read co-ordinates in the four quadrants. We will of course be investigating translation and reflection too - possibly even with a Christmas slant....
Our newspaper stories are progressing well. A key focus this week is to include both direct and indirect speech as this will also allow us to include formality and informality. Hopefully we will also have time to type the stories up so that they look like real newspaper reports.
Later in the week we will be popping to Tunstall Church with our buddies to take a look at the trees in the Christmas Tree festival - it really is worth a look if you have the time.
