A warning to parents of Owls this week; we are practising persuasive techniques in our writing so watch out for these as we try to convince others to our way of thinking! We’ve looked at the ‘Rule of three’ (making three points in the same sentence), emotive language and some exaggeration too. An entertaining afternoon was also spent recreating Stonehenge from wooden bricks. The children weren’t allowed to pick up the bricks but had to use rollers, as would have been the method back in the Stone Age. There was some excellent creative thinking but we certainly found a new level of respect for how hard it must have been to move some huge rocks over 200 miles! In Maths, we have moved onto addition and subtraction but have found that a good understanding of place value is always very useful!
