The children are learning how to research information from the internet and creating presentations. To prepare the children before they complete their presentations, we would like them to use the websites to research some facts. They will also have access to these during the lesson.
This week we have started our research about the famous writer, William Shakespeare. We are asking the children to look at the links below and bring into school some information they have found about this well known person.
The children have been given the task to research information about castles. In computing, we have been practicing how to cut and paste both pictures or text into a word documents. Ask you child to use the links to find more about castles and bring them to the lesson next week.
The Key Features and Parts of a Castle
Today we used online and physical dictionaries in the classroom to helf the children understand a more challenging text. We used the website below and the key words. See if they can work out what the words are in their home reading books.
