Maths:

This week we will continue to look at multiplication and division. The Year 3s will be focusing on equal groups and the 3 times table. The Year 4s will be focusing on dividing numbers by 10 and 100, which will also include x10 x100 from last week. 

Literacy: 

 

Our book for this term is: Escape from Pompeii by Christina Balit 

We have learnt all about the events of AD79 Pompeii and have a much better understanding of what it must have been like during the time when a hill suddenly erupted, turning day into night. This week, we will begin to read the story and use some drama to act out certain parts and to become more familiar with the five different story stages. We will also be learning about synonyms and how these help our writing to become better and far more interesting to read. For example: instead of saying said we could say: chanted, whispered, shouted etc.
