We have been focusing on multiplication this week. We enjoyed using counters to make arrays that helped us see what multiplication look like and help us see how multiplication and division are related. 

In English, we have been writing non-chronological reports about India in paragraphs. We loved researching about different aspects of India including; the food, people, landmarks and customs using our new set of iPads. 

Up and Away!
As part of our project about Phileas Fogg, we have examined different modes of transport that you could use to travel around the world. We loved the idea of hot air balloons and worked together in teams to build model hot air balloons. Creating a balloon shape without a balloon was tricky. 

Mini Medics
Sarah, the super medic, visited our class to show us how we help people who were injured or poorly. She helped us understand how to help someone who was not breathing or bleeding badly.
