Term 3 Week 3

This week we have become news reporters and have been enjoying planning, filming and editing a news report based on our Literacy topic. We have been focusing on our speaking and listening skills in Literacy and in groups, have created news reports based on the villagers capturing the Iron Man. We used our knowledge of formal language and inference to use information from the text to predict how the characters would feel and act. 

In Maths Year 4 have been looking at the formal written method for multiplication. We have looked at how to use our knowledge of partitioning and times tables to support us with this new method. Year 3 have been looking at division methods and how to create equal groups to find the answers to division questions. 

In History we looked at how the Roman invasion has left a lasting impact on Britain by bring Roman roads to the country. We made our own Roman roads to see how difficult it would have been to get smooth, hard surfaces then used plaster of paris to simulate tarmac to compare them to modern roads. We talked about why the Romans would have needed roads, and how they have changed and developed over time. In computing we have been looking at photo editing and have used cloning to edit photos to achieve the results we want. 

We hope you have a lovely weekend.
