What we have been up to this week (W/C 19.10.20):

This week, we worked really hard in our joint English and Computing unit, creating our own news broadcasts in front of a green screen. It wasn’t easy writing and performing our own scripts in front of the camera, but the children all did a fab job. Shortly, I will upload them to our class page so you can have a watch of them at home. We have begun to apply of addition and subtraction knowledge to solving problems in Maths and in History, we looked at the Roman legacy in Britain.

In English and Computing, we wrote and filmed our own news broadcast.

In PE, we looked at different through techniques used in the different throwing events in athletics.

We have worked very hard up to this point, but the children finally got to paint their shoes. They all look fab!
