3,4 A Class News

Saturday 21 January 2023

It’s been another busy week at Scholes!

In Writing, we wrote up our recounts about a volcanic eruption and the children used some fantastic vocabulary, including some lovely fronted adverbials.

In Maths, we’ve been working on multiplication.  Year 4 have been using column multiplication to multiply 3 digit numbers and Year 3 have been partitioning to multiply 2 digit ones, moving onto using the formal method in Week 4.

In Reading, we’ve continued to work on a variety of different skills, including retrieval, inference and choice. It was also great to see some fantastic reading record activities in Book Club on Wednesday.

In Topic, we’ve been learning about how volcanoes are formed and the impact they can have, both positive and negative.

That’s not to mention some really thoughtful contributions in Living and Learning (please see the previous class news post for more detail, the picture below shows everyone working away on their posters), some great ball skills in P.E and some super work on classifying rocks in Science!

Well done 3,4 A on another successful week. I also wanted to say a big well done to all the children who learnt and recited the poem sent home earlier in the term – Catch a Little Rhyme. There were so many who gave it a go!

Please help at home by reading regularly with your child, helping them to practise their spellings and ensuring they continue to practise their times tables on Times Tables Rockstars (in particular, x8 for Year 3 and x9 for Year 4). Thank you for all that you do, your support makes a big difference.Living and Learning lesson activity
