This week in Lions...

Posted 1/7/2016

This week in English we have been looking at persuasive writing. We have analysed persuasive letters and texts, as well as learnt about persuasive devices such as groups of three (adjectives), repetition, exaggeration and rhetorical questions. The children have started to write letters to persuade the Olympic organisers to include sports which aren’t currently Olympic sports, for example cricket, squash, bowling, mixed martial arts and chess. We were outraged to learn that some of these sports aren’t already part of the Olympic games!

In Topic we have been drawing portraits of Olympic athletes. The children discussed the different aspects of portraits, particularly focusing on facial features. We then used special drawing pencils to accurately draw and shade portraits of athletes. This was a task that the children found quite difficult but the results were fantastic!

In Maths this week we have been practising applying our skills to problems. We have practised the calculations that we use, including column and bus stop method. We then practised lots of mental arithmetic and reasoning questions. The children have been continuing to work hard to learn their times tables, we have especially enjoyed listening to and singing some multiplication songs.  

The children have also enjoyed baking this week. They have used their mathematical skills in measuring and capacity to weigh ingredients. The buns that they made were absolutely delicious and were sold to raise money. They also enjoyed making rocky road, although the best part was definitely eating them!  

Thank you to everyone who came and supported us in our class assembly on Thursday! We absolutely loved performing music and sharing some of our work!
