Term 3 Week 2

This week we have been excited to continue with this term's text Blue John. It is a story about a boy made of crystal who lives in the darkness of a cave, desperate to see the outside world. We have used this to inspire our knowledge of caves and how they form. We have looked at the features of a Non-Chronological Report and will be building our skills in order to write one about cave systems. 

In Maths Year 4 have been looking at multiplying and dividing by 10 and 100. Year 3 have been looking at formal methods for multiplication. 

In our Science we are looking at rocks, and have started the topic by using microscopes and magnifying glasses to look for similarities and differences between rocks, and the three different types. In our Geography learning we have been looking at significant global indicators and their location. In our Art learning we are looking at the artist Hokusai, and have used his print of Mount Fuji to inspire our own prints. 

Have a lovely weekend, 

Mr Saunders and Mrs Hendry
