At the start of the week, we had a great morning creating our own Graffiti masterpieces! We began by creating our own stencil, which we then spray painted onto our boards. There were many different designs amongst the class including, diamonds, love hearts, emojis and even x-box controllers! Using the lid of the cans, we added splats to our designs as well as spraying hashtags and other designs onto our board. We finished off the session by spraying a word across the board; many of us chose our name to make our designs personal! We cannot wait to show them off at the gallery before the end of term!
In maths, we have moved onto addition and subtraction, kick starting with our mental addition and subtraction! We played a great game in which we rolled dice to produce numbers and would race each other in mentally adding and subtracting the numbers, we have become much faster!
During English lessons, we have been working on our descriptive detail in narrative writing. We are getting so good that we are now tweaking the descriptive details in our class-reading book Varjak Paw. With our writing skills, we are able to improve the writing of the S.F Said!
This week we have also spent time learning about the City of Berlin! We compared Berlin to London and discovered many differences and similarities between the two. For example, the population of London is over double that of Berlin. We also learnt about the Berlin wall, learning about when, why and how it happened. We spent time thinking about what it would be like to have been an East Berlin resident and how awful it would have been!
