It’s been lovely to have all the children back ready to learn. Whilst it has been an adjustment coming back from the holidays, the children have had a fantastic, eager attitude and worked very hard – so well done!
This first week back we have kickstarted our project by falling deep into an ancient cave, before waking up in the Stone Age! Our key text in English has been The Stone Age Boy, which we have used to inspire us to write suspensful sentences about what could be lurking deep within the cave.
In Maths we have been looking at multiplication and the ways in which this can be represented with arrays, as well as exploring the relationship between certain multiples (such as the 10 times table being in the 5 times table – but not the other way around). Here are some supplementary maths sheets: Arrays, Multiples of 2, Multiples of 5 and 10
In STEM, we have investigated forces and the effect that different surfaces can have. Why does does it require less force to pull a car over a smooth wooden surface than a carpeted one? We also thought about balanced and unbalanced forces – why does the car only move once I have pulled a certain amount?

English: We are continuing to use the Stone Age Boy in English to help us write a version of the story where the girl is transported to the future instead.
Maths: Multiplying and dividing by 3 and 4
STEM: We are continuing to explore forces – specifically acting forces and whether or not contact is always necessary to make something move…
A note on PE: Please ensure your children are coming to school with weather appropriate PE kit as we are sometimes outside. Thank you!
