In maths we have been learning how to multiply by a 2-digit number. Many of us found this a bit tricky, so we need to keep practising. This poster should help us to remember what we need to do.

In English this week we tackled the concept of symbolism. We amazed Mrs Hibbert with our insightful answers. Amelia gained a Superstar certificate for her very thoughtful answers.

We enjoyed performing in our Harvest Assembly with Year Four and Five. We sang beautifully and shared information about harvest celebrations around the world. A big thank you to those of you who could join us .

In topic this week, we have started to investigate friction. We had great fun finding out about the different materials and which caused the most, or least, friction.

A huge well done to Grace and Charliann who took part in line orienteering this week. Also to Lilly, who gained a Superstar certificate by always being ready to learn and trying her best with every task she undertakes. Keep up the great work!
