Term 2 Week 2

It has been another busy week this week, with lots of amazing learning going on in all the classrooms. In Literacy we have continued our learning on Marcy and the Riddle of the Sphinx, and have looked at the use of apostrophes, homophones and complex sentences. On Thursday we took part in the two minute silence for Remembrance Day, and we then had a go at writing our own poems based on classic war poetry.

In Maths, Year 4 have been looking at units of length and how to use these to add and subtract, including finding the perimeter of shapes. Year 3 have been looking at multiplication methods and patterns in the times tables.

In our topic we have been researching about the River Nile, and why it was so important in the daily lives of the Egyptians. The children have then produced fact files on the information they found, and we were amazed at the detail and effort that they put into their learning. In Science we have continued to look at light, and this week we looked at different materials and how reflective they were to see which ones would be best for a new high-visibility item of clothing.

We hope you have a lovely weekend.
