Maths: We have been working hard on out skills of multiplication by 10 and 100. We have really enjoyed watching how we can grow numbers by multiplying by multiples of ten. We went on to use this skills to manipulate our knowledge to see how what we know can be increased simply by multiplying (and dividing) by 10, 100, 1000 etc.

English: Our focus this week has been learning the text The Tree Giant following our cold task of writing a non-chronological report about worms. We have a really good understanding of the text itself and have started to look at how it is actually structured so that we can use the structure to help us write our own text about a Christmas elf (or giant).

The most interesting part of our work this week was when some parents managed to join us for this year’s Craft Morning. We had great fun creasing Christmas curved stitching. After a good dose of patience and help, we were all successful in out attempts to create a beautiful finished product which we will be turning into something for Christmas.

For the other part of the week, we started to think about our Christmas enterprise project and began designing our hot chocolate cones. We are so excited about making these and selling them next week to friends and family. Let’s hope we can make lots of profit.

Our Star of the Week this week Maddie because of the hard work and effort she continually puts into her work. This hard work and effort is enabling her to reap the rewards in terms of her understanding.
