Well done Team Amber for another brilliant week.


 This week in English, we have been revisiting how we use expanded noun phrases, prepositions and dialogue in our writing based on the text 'Mini Rabbit Not Lost.' This week in Maths, we have been learning how to multiply a two-digit number by a one-digit number using short multiplication with and without regrouping. We finished the week using short multiplication to answer word problems. 


Next week in English, we will be exploring Pirate Adventure Stories and expressing our views on each one before planning and writing the beginning of our own with a focus on preposition, adverbs, conjunctions and adjectives. 
Next week in Maths, we will be looking at dividing a three-digit number by a one-digit number using place value counters to support us. We will be finishing the wee dividing with both regrouping and remainders. 


This week in Religious Education (RE), we have been looking at religious artefacts and how they are used to show faith. We looked at artefacts from the Islamic faith and matched the artefact with its correct name before discussing what we thought they were used for. In Science, we have been investigating what happens to a shadow when the properties of light are changed. We worked in groups to carry out an investigation to find out how we can make a shadow bigger and how we can make a shadow smaller. In Design and Technology

(DT), we explored a range of purses and wallets. We then created an initial design for our own which we will create this half term.


Congratulations to this week's stars and Top Ten Rockers!
