Wow! Team GG had an amazing day and it was brilliant to see how much effort and thought had gone into their choosen character. They showed great enthusiasm throughout the day as they had the challenge of writing a persuasive letter to either Mrs Longden or Mrs Lawson to attend the theme of a Mad Hatter's Tea Party. Their task was to think about prior skills that they have obtained from previous writing genres where they had to identify the fact that their letter had to include positive adjectives in order to entise their recipient. Not only that, they also used their time to develop their choice of language through the use of the Thesaurus to record synonyms for words such as beautiful, happy, exciting and action packed. During lunch, Team GG's classroom was transformed into a magnificently entertaining Mad Hatter's Tea Party. What a thrilling day it has been for Team GG and as one child said 'This day could not get any better.'
The children have been busy applying their historical knowledge in order to write a formal letter to the King and Queen of Spain. Not only that, they had to imagine and take on the role of being Christopher Columbus in order for them to write their letter. Before doing so, they had to develop and acquire the skills required to write a formal letter.
Through planning and completing two drafts, the children were able to recreate their own letter that they then had to age through staining as well as experiencing how to create a seal for their letter through the use of wax.
The children have been busy developing their knowledge of money through identifying the value of each coin, selecting money to create different totals (pence, pound and pence and pounds) and beginning to find change. Through using the methods of place value charts and column addition and subtraction, the children have been able to answer reasoning and problem solving questions.
