12 Days ’til Christmas

December 13, 2019

In English, we have been writing our own exhilarating ending to Kensuke’s Kingdom. In order to excite the reader, we have included direct speech, fronted adverbials and powerful adjectives and verbs. We have also been working collaboratively in our editing lessons and have been supporting each other with spelling, punctuation and grammar.

In Maths, we have been using our knowledge of addition and subtraction to work out word problems with multiply steps. As well as this, we have explored different methods we can use to help us prove and check our answers.

We have fully immersed ourselves in the art of printing, in particular mono-printing, and have been using a variety of tools, inks and paints to recreate the journey of a refugee. Our pictures are incredible!
