The Eagles have been writing to explain this week. We looked at images of crop circles, which the children then tried to explain. They then arranged their theories onto a continuum from ‘plausible’ to ‘implausible’. It got interesting when people got chance to move the theories around! The children got lots of chances to explain using various words and phrases that mean the same as ‘because’.
The children have been experimenting with structuring a balanced argument in different ways. To do this, we created sentence strips to combine in different ways using the appropriate conjunctions.
We have been making maps of towns using lots of French vocabulary. The children are going to do lots of work on giving and following directions in French. This obviously links with the work next half term on maps and map reading skills.
