This week the children have worked hard to write a non-chronological report all about South Africa and apartheid. 

Pupils used an ‘Arrays game’ to reinforce their skills at multiplying by 8. In pairs, children took turns to roll a pair of dice and then created as many arrays as they could on their graph paper. The winner was the person with the most coloured squares at the end.

In R.E. pupils learned about the Grace and explored verses from the Bible. 


This week in science we investigated which materials were the most effective in preventing vibrations from sound sources reaching the ear. The children enjoyed making their own ear defenders using paper cups and a range of materials.
