This week has been another busy one in 5HF.

In maths, we have continued exploring multiplication. The children had 12 guests watching them on Monday and coped extremely well.

We have explored the associative and distributive laws in maths. SO 25 x 18 = 50 x 9= 450...much easier! or 24 x 14 is 24 x 10 + 24 x 4 = 240 + 96 = 336. We are now beginning the hard job of "long multiplication"!


In English, we have finally moved on from myths. We have started persuasive adverts for food. So if you can encourage your child to describe their meals and gratefully tell you how delicious and mouth-watering they are it will really help! We have begun Talk for Writing to learn a radio advert script for an Italian restaurant.


The afternoons have continued with exploring 'Brains or Brawn?' We looked at what it means to be 'brainy' and how amazing all of our brains are! We have tried to train our brains to work more efficiently. In PE, the children have worked in teams to complete challenges using a combination of brain and brawn!  In science we have studied gestation periods of different mammals and the children enjoyed using iPads to find out more. Finally, we looked at "respect' linked to anti-bullying. As you can see Orla loved her kindness message she received in our lesson.
