On Monday this week we continued making French food menus. When we finished them, we got into partners, and one of us pretended to be a customer while the other one pretended to be a server. The customer ordered off the menu and the server took our order and counted up the total in Euros.
We have been writing springtime stories. On Tuesday we wrote the first paragraph using a ‘roll your own adventure’ sheet. You had to roll a dice four times, and the numbers told you where and when it should be set, who the main character should be, and what the main plot should be. We finished writing the stories on Thursday, making sure they had lots of dialogue, similes and descriptive adjectives.
We also started SRA comprehension this week. Last week we filled in a test sheet which determined what level we start at. This week Ms Mitchell and Miss Sinclair told us what colour of comprehension sheet we should take. We each got a card which suited our level, and read through it and answered questions.
On Wednesday we learnt about Nowruz, which is Persian New Year. We learnt about their special table called a haftseen, which has special items on it, and learnt that people celebrate by jumping over fire.
In maths we have been focusing on division, and all the maths groups have moved onto using written strategies. It has been tricky but it is rewarding when you understand how to do it!
