We have had another lovely week in Merlins’ class this week.
Within Maths Year 3 have been multiplying and dividing by 3 and 4. Year 4 have been multiplying and dividing by 6 and 9. We have looked at lots of different ways of showing multiplication and division, including repeated addition and arrays. We have also looked at reasoning and problem solving questions about equal groups.
In English we have begun to look at the topic of Mystery Stories, we have written our Cold Write as well as learning the text through actions and symbol maps. This has allowed us to really think about What A Good One Looks Like (WAGOLL) so that we really understand what the features of a Mystery Story are.
Year 3 – Adding suffixes with vowels: gardening, gardened, limited, limiting, developing, developed, listening, listened, covered, covering.
Year 4 – Adding ‘ly’ to an adjective: usually, finally, beautifully, thoughtfully, wonderfully, faithfully, carefully, peacefully, cruelly, generally.
We have noticed a lot of disruptions in class due to pencil cases, we are asking that children no longer bring their pencil cases into school. Thank you for your co-operation.
On Friday 6th December we are walking to the Repton 400 to watch the KS1 production, if you are able to walk down with us please let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Additionally we have our carol service on Monday 16th December and would also need volunteers. Both events will be happening in the afternoon so if you are able to be in school for 12:45 that would be brilliant.
We hope you have a lovely weekend.
