In year 3 this week we have been starting to look at different ways to multiply 2 digit numbers by one digit numbers and are moving on to look at the column method. In English we have started to look at poetry and are reading 'Twas the night before Christmas' and are going to rewrite our own Christmas poems in the same style as Clement Clarke Moore. In Art we have been starting to create our own 'sphinx' pictures with animal bodies and a pharaoh head. We have thoroughly enjoyed watching the band performances this week and well done to Jessica and Abigail F who performed in assembly on Wednesday.
It's been great having Adam back for work experience. He's been very helpful during the week and Year 4 have enjoyed his company. It was also nice to welcome Mr Queenan in on Wednesday afternoon; he showed us how to make an electrical loop game which finished off our electricity topic in a very meaningful way. We've continued to investigate times tables patterns in maths and enjoyed looking at how words can be written to reflect their meanings in writing. Don't forget your Secret Santa presents; they need to be in next Thursday or Friday.
