Welcome back to Term 3
We hope you have had a nice break and are ready for another fantastic term!
We are very excited to be starting our new topic ‘A Moment of Time – Brunel’. Through this topic, we will be researching Isambard Kingdom Brunel and discovering what Brunel did to change life in Victorian England.
On Thursday 23rd January, we will be making our way to SS Great Britain on Bristol Harbourside where we will be having a guided tour and an opportunity to explore the boat. Details of this will be sent to you shortly.
The children have worked really hard and have had amazing term learning about money. Term 3 focus is multiplication and division.
To help your child at home please work with your child to help them to explore all the different ways they can make 100.
We will continue to practice 2’s, 5’s and 10’s times table. Practice makes perfect!
