Martin Luther King Class weekly update 2020

This week, in Topic, we have been learning about the ‘Windrush generation’ and looking at the reasons why the people from the Caribbean came to live in the UK.  We have been writing list poems imagining what it may have been like.  We have also learnt about the Jamaican artist Bernard Stanley Hoyes. Through studying his work we have developed our techniques in using pastels.

In maths we have focused on long division and long multiplication. We have worked really hard on these and have all shown great resilience and made amazing progress. 

In English we have been learning to write persuasive texts.  At the moment we are writing to a judge to insist that Camp Green Lake ( Holes by Louis Sachar) is closed down.  They are still ‘works in progress’ at the moment so we will let you know how we got on next week!

Finally, can I say a huge thank you to everyone who donated to the foodbank this week- your generosity has and will be greatly appreciated.
