Friday 29th November


We have been solving multiplication word problems using our 3, 4, and 8 times tables. We ended the week applying our knowledge to a multiplication dice game. It was a lot of fun!



We learnt the story map of ‘A Stone Age Boy’. We then wrote a letter as if it was us that was in the story and we had me Om in the Stone Age.



What a fun lesson we had this week, learning all about cave art. We got to sketch our own cave art in our sketch books before recreating the art along a massive sheet of paper all down the corridor. We mixed chalk and water to make the drawings of animals and tools look authentic.



We recapped our 6 counts that we created ourselves, then we added the final part of the Hakka. The scary faces were frightening!

After a recap of how fossils are formed, we got to make some replicas using clay. It was a bit messy, but the outcome was great! They look amazing!
