We have been testing our mental mathematics skills, focussing on addition and subtraction. Some of the best methods used to find the answers are partitioning, column and equal addition/subtraction. Being good at mental mathematics is useful for everyday lives, whether it’s counting money or sharing sweets.

“I found mental addition and subtraction very easy because I practice a lot and use the different methods regularly,” explained Louis.


We looked at Barnardos children’s charity and made timelines with key dates referring to big events in the charity’s history. Some of us were able to produce a profile on founder of the charity Dr. Thomas John Barnardo. This also included a paragraph written from the president’s perspective,highlighting issues that the charity could address.

“I enjoyed creating the timelines and learning new things about the Victorian age because History is my favourite subject,” Madison quoted.


We have been listening to some French music attempting to pick out individual words and translate them. We have learnt how to say different colours and phrases in French such as ‘ecouter’ (listen), ‘regarder’ (watch) and ‘croiser les bras’ (fold your arms).

“I enjoy studying French because I like learning new languages,” exclaimed Bailey.

“Bonjour, Je m’appelle Jessica!”

Maths homework links to in-class learning to allow the children to consolidate their work. Spellings are tested every week on Friday and children can choose whether to learn ‘Core’, ‘Challenge’ or ‘Extension’ words.
