Term 2 Week 5

This week in our Literacy we have been looking at how to organise our writing into paragraphs. We looked at reordering the story we have been reading this term, and expanding sentences into paragraphs, and have also book looking at headings and subheadings as a way of organising paragraphs in non-fiction texts.

In Maths Year 3 have been looking at problems involving multiplying and dividing numbers by 4 and 8, and how to use their times table knowledge to support them. Year 4 have been looking at using their knowledge from the year so far to complete problem solving investigations. We have also had another practice of the Year 4 multiplication check. All children should be practicing regularly to ensure they know all their times table facts in under 6 seconds.

In Science we looked at the history of the sundial and how this uses the sunlight to tell the time. We even had a go at making our own. In History we looked at the process of mummification and what the Ancient Egyptians believed happened to you after death. In DT we decorated the walls of our tombs, using our maths learning on measuring to make the wall paper fit exactly. We also had a fantastic day out at the Pantomime on Wednesday!

We hope you have a lovely weekend.

Mr Saunders and Mrs Hendry.
