A massive congratulations to Matilda and Jake for their sheer enthusiasm with our new topic. Well done both of you for gaining the class merits today.

Science and Design Technology

Year 3 investigated- Which building has the least damage after an Earthquake? 

They predicted and carried out a fair test to find out which building design was the best design.

Column addition

Today we used base 10 to support our learning of adding 2 digit numbers using the column addition method. We started doing additions without crossing the tens and then when we were confident and secure, we began doing additions crossing the tens. When are ones column totalled more than ten we exchanged ten of our ones for a tens stick and carried it over into our tens column. Well done everybody! 

Marvellous Maths

This week in our mastering number session we are understanding the composition of odd and even numbers. The focus will be the conecpt that even numbers are composed of 2's and odd numbers contain 2's but have an extra one. We will relate this to familiar experiences of objects that come in 'pairs'. 

Marvellous Music

Year 4 had a new music teacher today for penny whistles. I was highly impressed by their fabulous playing and their eagerness to learn. Well done Year 4.

We have used online manipulatives this week to help us explore fractions. We used the fraction wall on to find equivalent fractions.
