We have had yet another jam-packed week in Seals class! It has involved odd socks, matinees, pyjamas and lots of learning along the way!
This week, we have continued our newspaper reports unit of work. This has involved producing a double page spread plan, boxing up the model text, writing a formal structured plan, conducting interviews and writing effective headlines! Next week, we will begin writing our newspaper reports.
We are very nearly at the end of our fractions unit of work and this week we have had to learn a lot of rules! We have been multiplying fractions by integers, multiplying fractions by fractions, dividing fractions by integers (where the numerator is and isn't a multiple of the integer), and answering mixed operation problem-solving questions involving fractions!
Our ancient Greeks work this week has been centred around childhood and homes. The Seals have learned about infancy, differences in education and fun/games for children in ancient Greek times. Children also discovered what the word 'Oikos' means and found out about the homes of ancient Greeks, including what they looked like, what they were made of, the layout of most houses, what each room was like and the purpose of each room in the house. It was interesting for the children to discover that ancient Greek homes reflected the societal norms of this period of time, including the status and roles of men and women, which are very different to the views and roles represented in society today.
Children have been given a creative piece of homework this week which is to design a poster for Anti-Bullying week. The task has been explained in class, but if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me. The best posters will be displayed around school and the classroom!
Homework is due in school on Monday 20th November.
