What we are learning.....
Otters class have been continuing to practise their mental maths daily - keep practising this at home as it really does make a difference.
Year 3's have been using their knowledge of the times tables to help them divide by 3 and 4 and we will continue with multiplication and division after half term.
Year 4's have been looking at writing mixed number fractions and have been adding fractions to make more than a whole. We will continue looking at fractions after half term starting with subtracting fractions and then finding a fraction of a given number.
In literacy we have been writing instructions and explanations - the children have learnt their instructions need to be very specific other wise they can be misinterpreted. They enjoyed giving me instructions on how to make a sandwich for my lunch.
During many of the parent consultations I discussed the need to continue to hear your child read - please keep this up as it helps with their understanding and pronunciation. Many of you asked for book recommendations - keep an eye on the website, this will be updated shortly.
