 Homework 18th January 2019
 
This week we have had 2 exciting events taking place in school. On Monday an Islamic lady came in to our class to talk about Islamic beliefs which was fascinating and the children (and Mrs Beswick) learnt a lot!
On Wednesday the class had a very hands on exciting archaeology session linking to our topic.
In English we have been writing recounts and have just started moving onto diaries. 
 
For homework, please can you child write a recount about either the Islam lady's session and what they found out, how they felt and what the enjoyed, OR write a recount about the Archaeology session and what they found out, how they felt and what the enjoyed.
 
A recount describes an event, is written in the past tense and uses time adverbials to show the sequence of events eg. then, next, first, finally, all of a sudden 
 
I will try and load some photos onto the class page so you can see some of the things we got up to.
 
Don't forget capital letters and full stops for every sentence!
