The Listeners: Last half term our ‘Poem of the Moment’ was The Listeners by Walter de la Mare. View the clip to let us share the poem with you.

Art & Science: We have been looking at how creatures adapt to their surroundings so that they stand a better chance of surviving. Here we are creating abstract paint patterns using marble trays. We have used some of our pattern to act as a background while creating creature outlines out of another section of the pattern. When the creature is placed onto the background it is so well camouflaged that, from a distance, it seems to disappear!

Maths: We have begun to develop our written multiplication skills. To begin with, we used our floor array to explore our current skills. Once we had assessed our written calculation performances, we formed peer mentor partnerships to investigate the column decisions that caused us to make mistakes. Next, we formed groups to create questions that will need to be answered using a written method.
