Happy New Year! The children have come back after the Christmas break ready to learn and raring to go!
In English this week we have been looking at dragons and enjoying plenty of time on the computers and iPads, researching different aspects of this topic. We even had a debate about whether dragons were real or just myths. Even when we found out about komodo dragons and bearded dragons, we still weren't sure!
In maths, Year 4 have been exploring decimals with Mrs O'Sullivan and have made excellent progress with one and two decimal places and even converting them into fractions (and back!). Year 3 have been using number lines to explore three digit numbers. Hopefully, everyone will have attempted their homework, which was to complete a 12x12 multiplication grid. We are going to have a test on Monday to see where we are up to with times tables.
This week we have also started work on our topic for this term: Egyptians. On Friday we had a go at writing our name in hieroglyphics and had a discussion about what a Sphinx was!
The class spent time with Mrs Walsh discussing different creation stories in RE time. This is part of our unit on caring for creation. We had help on Friday with this when we had a new member of the class., Acorn! Acorn is a common cockchafer who somehow found his way into class on Friday morning (I thought he was an acorn, until I saw his legs, hence the name!). The class have created a little habitat for him and have decided to care for him until the Spring. If like me you have no idea what a cockchafer is, follow this link:
