Class 5 – Ladybirds 2015-16

Ladybird Class 27.11.15

This week we have been learning about Edith Cavell, a nurse during WW1.  On Tuesday we visited the Lynn Museum and met Edith Cavell who told us all about her life as a governess and nurse.  We learnt what life was like for the soldiers and their families during the war.  We wrote a recount of our visit and included lots of interesting sentences using conjunctions.  We also pretended to be Edith Cavell and wrote a diary entry about how she hid soldiers from the Germans.

In maths we have been looking at money.  We added coins together and ‘visited a shop’ to see what sweets we could buy with 10p and 20p.  In science we experimented with different materials to see which ones were waterproof and strong enough to keep things in, in our attic.
