P6NM Our Learning WB 25.05.21

We have had a busy week in P6NM. Here is a summary of our learning:

Literacy

Reading

We held our Literature Circle meetings on Tuesday. The next meeting is on Monday 31st May.

Writing/Links to IDL

We read more of our class novel Wilderness Wars. In it, one of the main characters discovered bats roosting in a cave. We used this opportunity to read for information, using leaflets from The Bat Conservation Trust. We then worked in trios to construct a mind map sharing our new-found knowledge. Finally, we used these mind maps as plans for our writing. We wrote non-chronological reports on bats.

Opportunities for home learning

Here is a video explaining more. Once you have watched it you could try to write your own report around an area of your interest.
