Welcome to Salisbury's May blog. May your days be as bright as the flowers of May!
In English, we have been looking at persuasive writing. Our model text was persuading Miss Gilder to give us more homework. We enjoyed this so much, that we had a class debate explaining the reasons for and against more homework.
We went on to invent our own letter, persuading the government to save the bees, due to them dying out.
In maths, we have been reviewing a variety of topics. We particularly loved learning about measurements. We were shocked to find out that roughly 34 pencils is the same length as a bus.
We also reviewed the four operations and answered two step problems. It really helped us to bring them to life and act them out.
In Geography we have been learning about the different stages of the water cycle. If water is heated, it changes to water vapour, which is called evaporation. If the water vapour is cooled down, it changes into water. This is called condensation.
We went on to create a story about Danny the Water Droplet.
As the queen has reigned for 70 years, we have been celebrating her time on the throne by taking part in a range of activities. We particularly enjoyed the 1950's dance workshop, where we learnt a dance from the era.
