A big thank you to Mrs Greenslade who came in to school today! She used her expert knowledge as a nurse to speak to the children all about how to keep our bodies healthy by being hygienic. The children learnt so much and were very excited to discuss all the things they were learning! Thank you!

This week in topic we have been writing our very own acrostic poems! We began the week by looking at a variety of acrostic poems and thinking about the features. We then picked which mini-beast we wanted to write about – spider, snail, ant or wasp. When we had picked them we gathered loads of vocabulary for our mini-beast, thinking about what they look like, what they eat, how they move etc. We then planned and wrote our poems. We wrote some fantastic poems which our teachers were super proud of!
This week in maths we looked back over multiplication and division. We started the week with multiplication and remembered that we could use arrays, repeated addition or times tables to help us answer questions. We then looked at division and remembered that we could use dots in pots, repeated subtraction or times table facts to help us answer questions. We played lots of different games and solved different problems using our multiplication and division knowledge.
