What a rocking week we have had! All the Foxes have been super busy this week! I can’t believe we only have two weeks left until half term!
In English, we wrote up our historical narratives. The children did a great job at including all the features of a narrative as well as historical features related to the Viking era!
In Maths, we have been continuing learning about multiplication and division. Year 3 have been learning how to multiply a 2-digit number by a 1-digit number using partitioning. They have also looked at dividing a 2-digit number by a 1-digit number using flexible partitioning. We will be learning how to find remainders next week! Year 4 have been multiplying 2-digit numbers by 1-digit numbers using the short method of multiplication. They then learned how to divide using the bus stop method. We carried out questions involving both no exchanging and exchanging and finding remainders.
In Geography we continued to learn about Iceland. We looked at different physical features this week (features that would continue to exist without humans), including geysers, lagoons, volcanoes, glaciers, lava fields and waterfalls! We looked at how Iceland compares to the UK and which physical features we wouldn’t find here. The children came up with some great ideas.
We had a great day on Friday for NSPCC Number Day! The children came in dressed as Rock Stars and we completed some exciting Maths learning throughout the day! We also took part in an online competition called NSPCC Rocks on TTRS!
