And we've made it, our first full term as Merlins!
This week we have been completing our work on addition in Maths and learning about some important grammatical rules such as apostrophes for possession, paragraphs and subordinating conjunctions to introduce a subordinate clause.
We have done some interesting, off time-table lessons about black history as in Britain, October is Black History Month. We have learnt about why inequality is such a terrible thing and the root of this discrimination. We watched Martin Luther King's speech and written about our dreams for a better future - some fantastic and thoughtful ideas.
Today we have had our 'Step into the NHS day' and lots of adults have come in to talk to the children about their work in the NHS. The children have thoroughly enjoyed learning about a whole range of jobs and why our NHS is so important and special.
No spellings for half term but as we didn't have time to do our spelling test today due to all the visitors, please keep practising and we will test them at the start of the next half term.
Have a lovely half term break and I will see you bright and early on Monday 4th November.
