Maths: This week we have continued to work on our multiplication skills – we have been extending our understanding so that we can multiply larger numbers by looking for links with our know tables, for example all the teens numbers can be multiplied by multiplying by ten plus multiplying by the “other bit”. Once we got our heads around it, it made things so much easier!

English: We’ve continued to work on our retelling of Charlotte’s Web and are really impressive – watch the video with this blog. We’ve also been working on our targets so we now understand about the use of pronouns and the differences between personal pronouns and possessive pronouns. Our next steps are our use of long and short sentences for effect which we are planning to use in our escape stories next week.

The most interesting part of our work this week was dramatising the journey the Vikings took from their homes and the decisions that they had to make. We used these decisions to create a drama which we are going to turn into a diary entry so we can explain why the Vikings invaded.

Our Star of the Week this week is Robbie or always working to the best of his ability and being a positive role model in all that he does. Well done Robbie and continue bringing your positive attitude and work ethic to school every day, it really is appreciated.
