Walnut Term 2 Week 2

It has been lovely having everyone back in the classroom this week, since some children were too unwell to return to school for the first week of Term 2. We have been working very hard on our learning as always.

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 Numeracy, Year 3's have been mastering how to multiply 2 digit numbers by a 1 digit number, using the grid method. The Year 4's were calculating the perimeter of shapes.

In Topic we learnt why rivers were so important for civilization. We have researched information about The River Nile, and created very interesting fact-files.

Have a lovely weekend, see you all on Monday.
Mrs Jacobs, Mrs Dowdall and Ms Burbage.
