Wow! I have been blown away by Hawthorns English writing this week.
They have worked super hard to not only produce some fantastic balanced arguments about whether 'Faustalus was a good or bad man?' They discussed reasons for both sides of the argument, they were then left to write their own arguments. It was a rather split classroom in their answers.
We then went on to write their own version of Romulus and Remus with the challenge of adding in fronted adverbials and adjectives. I can not wait to get back in next week to read the finished stories.
Maths- we've continued exploring place value of numbers. We've partitioned numbers... looking at a given number and seeing how many thousands, hundreds, tens and ones are in the number. Eg. 3214 has 3 thousands, 2 hundres, 1 ten and 4 ones.
Art- the children have started work on their own collages. Will share our progress next week.
History- Our discovery of the Romans continues..... this week, we have explored the Invasion of Britain. We learnt about the well organised, trained and practised Roman soldiers to the more chaotic style of the Celts (British). Can the children tell you what the Romans wore in battle? What about the Celts?
We roleplayed one of the Roman armies learnt battle formations. Can the children tell you what this formation is called?
I am excited for another week of learning with Hawthorn.
Have a lovely weekend.
