‚ÄčThis week in English, we have been continuing to learn how to write an information text. We have started drafting and improving our paragraphs, making sure they include the necessary features. Our handwriting has been a focus this week and some of us even managed to earn our pen license! 

In maths, we have moved on from the expanded column addition method to the compact method. We have been using this method to solve a variety of challenging problems. 

In science, our focus has been on maintaining a balanced diet. We put our chef hats on and created some healthy meals, ensuring each meal gave us enough vitamins, minerals etc, to keep us fit and strong.  Our PE lessons have also be based on the importance of exercise to keep us healthy. We had a PE specialist pay us a visit on Wednesday afternoon to complete some fitness tests with us!

We have been continuing to learn about Ancient Greece in topic. We looked at the differences and similarities between the two most important states, Athens and Sparta, and debated which state we would have preferred to live in. We also studying the Greek alphabet and created some codes for our partners to solve!
