Our children worked incredibly hard during their independent writes - I am so very proud.

In our Maths lessons, we have approached the tricky subject of long division! This is a concept which some of us found very difficult, and this is okay. We have spent the week practicing the skill of long division consistently, before moving on to reasoning and problem solving once each child is ready to apply this skill confidently.

To finish our Science topic (Living Things and their Habitats), we went on an organism hunt in our school grounds before classifying them into categories using a classification tree!

To finish our History topic, we discussed the rules of King Aethelstan and King Alfred. We compared their reactions to the Viking invasion and settlement, before deciding who we thought was the better king!
