This week, the children have explored the history of global warming. We are fortunate enough to have Oli, from the company Ecologi, visiting the children on Tuesday. Ecologi plants trees and educates to become climate positive. They have planted a whopping 40 million trees. Please could the children do a little research and create questions they would like to ask him.

Weekly Review:

What a fabulous week we have had!

In Maths, we have deepened our understanding of adding and subtracting fractions. The children have used their knowledge of converting mixed numbers to improper fractions, to solve these calculations. 

In English, we have written persuasive letters and speeches, in character of Floodland's Dooby. Dooby is trying to convince that he should be the leader of Eels island. Well done to all the children who were brave enough to stand up and present their speech. 

In Topic, the children have developed their knowledge of the history of global warming. They have researched all the way back to The Ice Age and The Mediaeval Period to look at how temperatures rose and fell.
