The children have worked hard at multiplication this term using concrete apparatus and pictures to show their understanding of multiplicative reasoning. As a class, we studied ‘How to Train Your Dragon’ and the children really enjoyed the exciting descriptive writing in the book. We might have to get the second one in the series. We have also looked at the work of Modigliani. We built up to creating our own Modigliani style self-portraits. The class have continued to learn chess and are now able to use all the pieces as well as thinking about moves like ‘en passant’ and ‘castling’.
