Friday 6th December 2019

What a busy week it has been! As the holidays come nearer, classrooms have become busier, louder and a little messier! 

During our English lessons this week, the children continued to learn about newspapers/report writing. We saw videos of the Nepal earthquake of 2015 and wrote down what happened in note form. Then we wrote a summary using the notes we had made. Next week the children will be writing their own newspaper article about the Nepal earthquake, including direct and indirect speech.

In maths this week we continued learning to tell the time in different ways. We then converted analogue time into 12-hour digital time and 24-hour digital time. This is a life skill the children will need to continue to learn at home. Please support your child by showing them/asking them what the time is and how many minutes there are to the next hour. 

During our science lesson, we researched endangered animals and wrote a fact file on our chosen animals. In our geography lesson, we found out about how people in Japan prepare for an earthquake and compared it to people living in the UK. It was interesting to see how many things people in Japan had to do in order to survive an earthquake, starting from children as young as nursery age.
