We’ve continued reading The Boy in the Tower this week. On Monday, we role played as news reporters and wrote our report using the present perfect to show how past events have continued into the present moment. Over the rest of the week, we wrote in role as the protagonist, Ade, using our persuasive skills. The children then edited and published their letters.
The children have continued to learn about fractions, learning how to use bar models to aid understanding; converting between improper to mixed number fractions; and answering word problems involving fractions and converting fractions to have the same denominator.
The children have learned about copyright, fair usage and public domain, and shared their knowledge with posters they created using their Chromebooks.
Have a lovely weekend!
