In English this week we have continued to immerse ourselves in the text. We have learnt more about Rose Blanche as a character and predicted what would happen towards the end of the story. We have looked at the use of parenthesis and different ways to open a sentence. Whilst doing this, we have carefully considered the impact on the reader which the author was trying to create.
In Maths we have begun looking into BODMAS. It has been a challenge to remember that addition and subtraction is done left to right, as is multiplication and division. We look forward to continuing looking at this next week.
In topic we have compared Ancient Egypt to modern Egypt. Did you know that the population of Ancient Egypt was only 1-2 million, whereas Egypt’s population today stands at over 100 million people! We have also been looking at the climate in Egypt to see what conditions were like for the people, comparing its temperatures to Manchester’s. What a difference too!
