What a great day we've had (in the sun!). The child labour must have worn them out because it was a sleepy journey home.
I hope that they have lots to tell you about the mining at Morwellham because the trip certainly reinforced lots of what we had covered in class last Tuesday.
We have come to the end of our topic on Place Value in Maths and are moving on to arithmetic. After reinforcing our addition and subtraction written methods we shall spend time becoming fluent in multiplying by 2 digit numbers and in division. I shall send a sheet home next week outlining our methods to you as we have all learnt in different ways.
Times tables score are going up! We have focused on the 7s, 3s and 8s so please do some quizzing at home.
Our writing is focused around persuasion. If your child has a particular cause that they are passionate about persuading support for then it would be really useful if they could research and have to hand some facts and figures to support their presentation of the problem and the solutions that your organisation provides.
Have a super weekend and enjoy the photos.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
