A new calendar year and it feels like we never broke up! The children have come back with a fantastic attitude and have worked really hard this week.
We have started our new topic 'Who am I?' and we have started identity poems in English and looking at where we live. On Monday, we have an artist coming in to really engage the children and he will be doing some work on self portraits. We are really looking forward to it so thank you to all parents who have donated money towards this fantastic experience for the children.
In Maths, we have continued Multiplication and Division, looking this week at the 11 and 12 multiplication tables and factors. We will be moving onto short multiplication and division which do require a strong multiplication knowledge to help them be fluent in this method - any extra practice at home would be greatly appreciated. There are lots of useful websites which have games on and I will post links to these on the Merlins main page.
Hope you all have a lovely weekend,
Miss Jordan and Miss Hall
