What a fun week we have been having!


This week we started out topic on ‘Where we live’. We completed a card sort activity after discussing what human and physical geography is.


This week in English, we have finished our unit on ‘stories with a theme,’ the children wrote the middle and ending of their stories, making sure to include expanded noun phrases, conjunctions and prepositions. Next week in English, we will be starting our unit on ‘report writing’. We will be writing our own animal reports, linked to our science topic of ‘living things and their habitats’.


In Maths, we will be looking at multiplication, focusing on the 6, 7 and 9 times tables. We used 100 bead strings to help us work out the answers. Not only have we been doing multiplication, but we have been linking it to repeated addition. Next week in Maths, we will be scaling numbers and multiplying by 10. We will be working in different units, for example ml and cm.

Termly Home Learning Project:


This term's home learning project is all about our local area. The children have been asked to research Hemel Hempstead and present their information in their chosen way for example as a PowerPoint, poster or newspaper report. I look forward to seeing all of the information you have learnt before we break up for Christmas (16th December).
