Sharks have actually had an entirely normal week this week! Or… at least as normal as we can get! We’ve been looking at rounding to the nearest (deep breath) 10, 100, 1,000, 10,000 and 100,000 – all the way up to numbers in the millions! We have written some brilliant independent diary entries all about being awoken in the night by a Luftwaffe raid and overhearing what has been happening in London over the shelter’s wireless radio. In topic, we have concluded our look at the failings of Operation Sealion – namely that it never actually got started and it was planned as a tantrum in response to the successful evacuation of British forces during the Battle of Dunkirk. As an extra treat, we’ve spent each day learning a small amount of German with the help of a particularly nagging owl and practising our beautiful handwriting in our brand new transcription books. All in all, it has been a wonderful week in our shiver.
