St Peter's keys to Heaven
In the Gospel of Matthew 16:19, Jesus says to Peter, "I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on Earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on Earth shall be loosed in heaven.
This term in Topic we have been looking at Transport and Trade throughout time. We started our journey by identifying the different types of transport we know. It was a challenge to think of all the unusual forms of transport such as hover crafts and horses! We moved to looking at how trains have developed over time and created wonderful charcoal drawings of steam trains. We will continue out topic by looking at the boats which were used in different ancient cultures. We will finish by looking at space transport!
As our topic this term has been Transport our English work has fitted in really nicely! We have read Around the World in 80 day and spent time practising letter writing through Talk for Writing. We are currently reading How To Train Your Dragon which the children are loving! Watch this space!
This half term, we have been looking at formal methods of multiplication and division. We have practised both the expanded column method and the short column method for multiplication. We have also spent a long term learning the long method of division which we call the bus stop method. We are moving on to graphs after half term! Phew!
It can be tricky to know how to help your children at home with the work they are doing in school. Here are some documents to help you understand what they are learning in more depth!
