What we have been doing
In maths we have been looking at multiplication and division. We have been looking at the different ways we can represent different groups of and lots of, arrays, multiplying by 10 and 100 and multiplying 3 numbers together.
The children have progressed onto looking at written methods to complete the multiplication and division with bigger numbers.
In English the children have been writing their own stories to enter on the BBC 500 words competition. They have done some amazing work and the stories have been a pleasure to read!
In mission the children have been exploring different aspects of science and geography to answer the question what is the purpose of water in life and where does it come from?
In mission science we have explored the role of water in plants including identifying the names and functions of different parts of a plant, the life cycle of a plant and how water is transported within plants. In mission geography we started off looking at biomes and climate zone with a focus on the rain forest. We looked at mountains and rivers and finally linked it all together in the water cycle.
Children are asked to read every day, whether this be to an adult or another person. This can be recorded in their yellow homework diary. Please do ask children a variety of questions. A helpful sheet has been attached below to help guide the questioning around texts.
Every week children are given mental maths homework which has been differentiated to their level. Please encourage your child to complete as much of this independently before support is given, but also encourage them to use objects and pictures to aid their calculations.
Handwriting practice sheets are offered to the children each week, if your child does not take one, please do encourage them to still practice in their handwriting book at home.
Mission possible, each half term the children are given a homework booklet, children can be as creative as they wish and if they would like to investigate a subject further then please encourage them to do so. We are always to see what the children are passionate about!

Below are the different times table cards the children need to practise with at home.
