We chose who we would like to write a biology of and researched their life. We then drafted and wrote their biography.
We studied Tim Burners-Lee’s biography and produced a timeline of his life.
We are reading Tim Berners-Lee’s biography which contains lots of subject specific language. We learned techniques to help us understand vocabulary we don’t know then matched words to their definitions.
We all celebrated World Mental Health Day with the charity Young Minds # Hello Yellow. We wore yellow and thought about how we can help ourselves and others promote positive mental health. Singing happy songs definitely helped!

In science, we investigated Peppered Moths. They used to be with black dots, but as their environment became more dirty from pollution, they have adapted to become black so that birds cannot find them and eat them. We made some dotted moths and some black moths and hid them in an area of the playground for our partners to find.
In RSHE, we thought about how to promote positive self-esteem we played games thinking about what we are good at and then complimented each other. We all had much better self-esteem by the end of the lesson.
