Battle of Britain

There was huge excitement on Tuesday for the start of Owls’ swimming lessons. We were so impressed by the efforts of all the children and the improvement shown in just the first session. Back in the classroom we’ve been carrying on with our instructional writing in English though this week we’ve also been looking at possessive apostrophes which have definitely caused some confusion but we’re getting there with it! We’ve also been continuing our work on time including looking at converting between time units. It’s been our turn with the iPads this week and we’ve been busy creating infographics (a quick and effective way of presenting information) all about the Battle of Britain. The children have enjoyed looking for images of Spitfires and researching different statistics about the battle to include in their work.
