## Extra english work

Images to Inspire

If you would like your children to complete extra english work at home, please click on the above link.

This is a website with lots of pictures, where pupils can choose a picture and write an entire story about it. The picture can make up the beginning, middle or end of the story.

We often break stories down into 5 parts (or 5 paragraphs). The beginning, the build up, the issue, the resolution, the ending.

Below are some pictures as examples.

## Spring 2 Week 2 – Maths

Stars of the Week: Ruby and Joshua

This week in Maths, we have continued developing our understanding of bus stop division. We have become much more confident and can now divide a 2 digit number by a 1 digit number with a remainder. Some of us can even divide a 3 digit number by a 1 digit number! Knowing our times tables really well has really helped us with our division. If you found maths tricky this week, please spend some time on your times tables this weekend.

We do have our class collective worship assembly on Tuesday – please do continue practicing your lines and the song over the weekend! Thank you!

## Collective Worship

Our class collective worship assembly is on Tuesday 7th March.

Firstly, I apologise for the song choice – it may become quite irritating after the second or third or fiftieth run through! Please encourage your children to learn all of the lyrics off by heart to this song. Also, please encourage your children to learn their lines off by heart.

Thank you, I appreciate your support with this!

## Spring 2 Week 1 – DT

Stars of the Week: Evelyn and Jacob A.

Our DT topic this half term is Roman architecture and inventions. In our lesson we first looked at Roman arches, then we recreated our own arch using card and books to help support the card. We then used weights to test the strength of our arches.

This week in maths, we have started bus stop method division, which some pupils have found tricky. Please spend some time this weekend going over the times tables and related division facts. The maths sheets you were given at parents evening will be a great help!

## Spring 1 Week 6 – History Day.

Stars of the Week: Miriam and Albert.

We have had a great last week of this half term. On Thursday, we had History Day where we dressed up as Romans and had lots of fun developing our knowledge of this topic. In Maths we studied Roman numerals, in English we wrote a speech as Boudicca, encouraging the Celt’s to join the rebellion and in Art we created a mosaic in the shape of a soldier.

I hope you all have a lovely and restful half term!

## Spring 1 Week 5 – Science

Stars of the Week: Rory and Lola.

This week in Science, we conducted an experiment on soil. We put some soil in jars and then added water. We shook the jars and then left them for a couple of hours. When we came back to the jars, we could see the three different layers of soil clearly.

In Maths, we have moved onto multiplying 2-digit numbers by 1-digit numbers using the grid method. Please continue practicing your times tables at home if you are not feeling confident!

## Spring 1 Week 4 – Maths

Stars of the Week: Kayden and Yoki.

This week in Maths, we have moved onto the 3 times table. We have become much more confident with this times table and I am really impressed with how hard everyone in the class has tried. This week we have shown determination and perseverance.

In English, we have started planning our own chapter from ‘The Wind in the Willows’ which we will write and then publish next week.

Next week in Maths we are moving onto how to multiply a 2-digit number by a 1-digit number.

## Spring 1 Week 3 – Science

Stars of the Week: Betty and Gerard.

In Class 3 this week, we really enjoyed our Science lesson. We conducted an experiment on rocks and tested them on how strong they are, whether they absorb water and whether they float. We are really enjoying our topic of rocks!

I am also so incredibly impressed with how well Class 3 have learnt the 8 times table this week. They have worked so hard in Maths every day! Next week in Maths we will move onto the 3 times table.

## Spring 1 Week 2 – English

Stars of the Week: Malique and Anusha.

In English this week we have continued studying our class text, ‘The Wind in the Willows’. We have focused on describing the character’s appearances and personalities, and on setting descriptions. We focused on how to include the senses in our descriptions and we have been introduced to what personification is and how to write this technique. Have a read below!

In Maths this week we have focused on the 4 times table, which will be continued into next week, as well as the 8 times table. Please spend some time at home on the 4 and the 8 times tables if you are not feeling confident in them already!

## Spring 1 Week 1 – Art

Stars of the Week: Ava and Zein.

Happy New Year! I hope you all had a lovely and restful Christmas.

We had a great first day back after the Christmas break. In PSHE, we reflected on what we have achieved so far in our lives, and what we would like to achieve this year. This week is Art week, so we spent the afternoon starting to create our Vincent Van-Gogh inspired London landscapes. So far, they have turned out really well and we look forward to finishing them on Friday!
