In English, we looked at how to proofread correctly and purposefully. Some children tend to just skim through their writing and miss some pretty obvious mistakes, so hopefully the time we spent on this changes their perspective on proofreading. We also completed some reading comprehension work and looked at persuasive language again.
In topic, children have continued to work on their Mediterranean travel brochures. The plan is to hold a travel fair next week and invite other classes in to ask the groups questions on their respective Mediterranean country. Children will be making a persuasive poster to display at their 'travel booth' and are encouraged to wear the colours of the country they are researching. More information on this will be given in class next week.
In PE, we continued our focus on fitness and athletic skills. Children performed activities such as skipping and stepping through the agility ladder in order. They also tried their best performing sit-ups and push-ups along with some squats and lunges. Keep working on these skills at home so that you can improve for your end of the term fitness assessment!
