During English lessons this week we have been writing our own versions of Emily Davison's biography. We have been trying to use grammatical devices in our writing, such as relative clauses and expanded noun phrases. 


In Guided Reading the children have been reading the Magic Faraway Tree by Enid Blyton, which everyone has been loving. 


This week in maths we have been focusing on shape and investigating the different properties of shape, such as lines of symmetry. 


In History, we have been learning about the Suffragettes.  We have been looking at the history of the Suffragette movement and studying a time line which maps out the key events that changed the prospects for women.


Our new science topic is ‘Living things and their habitats’. The children have been classifying living things into different venn diagrams. Some examples of classification that the class came up with were 'Herbivore and Carnivores' and 'Living in water and Living on land'.
