Week 8 Update

Good afternoon, we were back to a full week of school at HFS and there has been so much going on in London class. We have just one more week to go before the half-term break, this term is just flying by.

This week, the students have been working on explanation texts in English. The students have looked at different examples of explanations texts to help them identify the structure and features, they have also practice writing introductions and conclusions. Today, the students start to plan their own explanation texts, to do this they designed their own inventions so they can explain how it works.

To end the week the students had a Spelling Bee competition, this was a practice for an actual competition that will take place on November 13th at HFS.
For the competition, the students need to orally spell words with no mistakes, they could ask for a definition of the word and for the word to be used in a sentence if they were unsure.
