We are currently focusing on multiplying and dividing - remember timestable knowledge makes this so much easier, the more confident they feel with their timestables, the better they will access the trickier reasoning problems in maths.
Our current focus: Non-Chronological Report
Last week, the children made me incredibly proud with their beautiful diary entries. For the next few weeks, we will be looking at writing a Non-Chronological report, all about The Victorian Workhouses.
The children are going back 100 years (and more!) to The Victorian Era. They have been looking at the differences between then and now, and realising how lucky we are to have the housing, education and criminal justice service we have now. Next week, the children will be using their items from home and the DT resources (saws and drills!) to create their own traditional Victorian toy. We have also been using atlases to research the Victorian Empire then and now and WOW what a difference!!
We are currently learning all about electricity. We have been asking and answering our own questions in science, having to put on our 'scientist' hats and think about all the skills scientists need in order to investigate.
We have PE on a Wednesday with Mr Smith and a Tuesday with Mrs Ball. Please ensure you have your PE kit in every day. Also ensure any long hair can be placed up in a bobble / hair band, as well as earrings being removed. Children cannot place tape over their earrings.
This year, we are so lucky to have Mrs Schuman teaching us for French on a Friday afternoon!
