In writing we have been looking at balanced arguments, including: should football be banned at play time? Should children complete homework? And should children have chocolate for breakfast.
We are currently writing an exciting adventure story relating to our class book, Black Powder!!
In Science we have been taking a look at the human anatomy and how our body works! We even made our own blood!!

In our Theme lessons we have been researching life during the Tudor and Stuart Period. We have also started to research the life of Ernest Shackleton and his journey around Antarctica! In Art we have started to look at George Edward Marston and his portrayals of Antarctica
Home learning hasn’t stopped 6 George from getting to grips with I.C.T. Over the course of the week they have been getting used to working on tablets instead of pencil and paper. They face challenges where they were instructed to annotate work, create posters and even use a sending system to hand in work. Before home learning we were working hard in I.C.T with our coding skills, we managed to successfully code a game called ‘Flappy Bird’ and managed to code animated characters into dancing!
