Horse Chestnut Class Updates

 Welcome to our class page!

This week in literacy we have been looking at the features of a newspaper, practising writing our own captions and headlines. We wrote questions and created characters for a mock interview:

In maths we have been continuing with our work on multiplication. We have been solving problems, as well as learning to use the compact method of multiplication.

Our science lesson this week involved some research and data collection. We designed 3 different types of concrete bridge (with varying degrees of reinforcement) and tested their breaking strength.

In music we have been practising some whole class songs on our cornets.



Next week in literacy:

We will be writing our own newspaper articles using everything we learnt last week.

Next week in maths:

We will start to work on division of a 4-digit number by a 1-digit number.
