What a fabulous week of writing, fractions, baking and painting!
We looked at the Christmas Truce from WW1 this week and discussed the validity of the sources reporting on the event. It made us think about humanity and the devastation the war caused to people's lives. We are currently re-telling the narrative and are keen to write them up and display them with our art work, as we are very proud of them!
Our maths work incorporated simplifying fractions. This is a skill that we needed to practice and we really have cracked it! We know that we must find the highest common factor for the numerator and the denominator and if there isn't a common factor (other than 1) it is in its simplest form. Great problem solving too!
In RE we have developed our understanding of Humanism and discovered that a lot of the beliefs and values are inherent in other religions too. A comparison really highlighted this.
We ended the week by baking some Big Ben biscuits. They were actually shaped like the clock tower (for parliament week) and were delicious (and a little crunchy!)
Great first week! I am looking forward to seeing you all on Monday :)
