Sapphire Class, Mrs Barber and Mrs Twohey love to learn, and we are so glad to be back at school. In our lessons recently, we have been working on lots of exciting things.

In Maths, we have focussed our learning on number, place value and multiplication. We remembered lots about our multiplication and could recall many times table facts. We applied our skills to be able to complete multiplication questions involving multiplying larger number by 2-digit numbers and used long multiplication for this. In the photo, you can see how Keith has used his multiplication skills.

In English, we have started to study ‘The Witches’ by Roald Dahl. We have been looking at the language and vocabulary used by Roald Dahl in his writing and we used our reading skills to identify useful words and phrases and used summarising skills to make notes from the text. We used these within our writing and produced a guide for spotting a REAL witch also in descriptive writing about The Grand High Witch. We are looking forward to using the text further and writing in many different genres. The photos show that Charlie has used the text well for his description.

Science has been really interesting for us. We have been ‘Classifying Critters’ and we collected many creatures from outside (e.g. worms, ants, spiders etc.) and used scientific classification diagrams to help us tell the difference between the creatures we had found. We then sketched what we had found before releasing the creatures back into their natural habitats. Mariyah sketched her creature in detail and Dylan was able to explain his Science knowledge clearly.
