Terms 3 and 4
This term we are going to be learning about the 'Terrible Tudors'. This looks set to be an exciting new theme with lots of interesting - and some disgusting - information to be explored!
The children are continuing to enjoy collecting stars for our 'Reach for the Stars' star board. Stars can be collected for passing a quiz on Accelerated Reader or passing an activity on Accelerated Maths - and sometimes for being a superstar!
In term 1 our winners were: Julia, Hayden, Naveen, Grace, Sophie and Josh who collected the stars with the highest total.
In term 2 our winners were: Grace, Emma, Lauren W., Lauren S., Sophie and Lana. A big well done, in particular, to Grace and Sophie who were winners in both terms 1 and 2! Come on boys - I want to see some boys winning again in term 3!

Today we have imagined a conversation between Lina and Doon and we will write it down as a conversation today. Here are some of our role plays of the conversation:
The children have been working very hard to improve their understanding of number in particular. This term we are working on multiples, factors, prime numbers, squared and cubed numbers - as a starting point!
Look how clever we are at proving our understanding using manipulatives:
