Last week in Maths we used all of our times tables facts to help us in lessons looking at factors and multiples and then using this knowledge to help us with short division. We spent some time in the Learning Pit struggling with the bus stop method for division, but we all persevered and are hopefully coming out the other side. We will have more practice on this to cement our learning this week. Also, look out for Maths videos on the blog which will take you through the methods for short division and long multiplication, so that you can refresh your memories at home.
In English we continued to use Shaun Tan’s book ‘The Lost Thing’ to inspire our writing. We used modal verbs and certain phrases to make suggestions about what someone should do if they’d found a lost thing. We also looked at the features and mannerisms which make up a character, so that we could make our own central characters, ready to write our own Lost Thing stories in the coming weeks.
In Science we continued with our topic of forces, focusing on air resistance this week.
In Art, we started work on our Christmas hoop! These will be going up very soon to get us into the festive spirit, so please do come and take a look. We’ll put photos on our blog as well.
We have also started planning our class assembly, which will take place on Tuesday 6th December. I’m sure you’ll be hearing all about it in the coming days!
