Term 3 Week 1

It has been a busy first week back and the children are already enjoying learning all about their new topic. This term we are looking at Bright Sparks which is all about electricity. 

In Literacy we are looking at the Iron Man by Ted Hughes. We have read the first two chapters and have been looking at the features of a newspaper preparing to write a report about the Iron Man's arrival. This week we looked at inverted commas and put ourselves into the positions of the characters to write quotes for our articles. 

In Maths Year 4 have been looking at multiplying and dividing by 10 and 100 and how this can be applied to mental multiplication. Year 3 have been looking at using the formal method for multiplication and how to apply their times table knowledge to answer questions. 

In topic we have started our learning on electricity by looking at electrical and non-electrical items. In history we have been looking at the Roman Empire. We have looked at the timeline of the Roman invasion, and the building of Hadrian's wall and why this is significant for British history. 

We hope you have a lovely weekend. 

Mr Saunders, Mrs Relf, Mrs Mallon, Miss Rackley and Mr Beattie.
