In maths this week, Team DB have started to develop their skills and understanding about multiplication. This will be one of the main topic focus in maths for this half term. This week, we have been looking at multiples and the lowest and highest common multiples in a particular times table. The children have also been multiplying two-digit and three-digit by one-digit. This has enabled them to practise their multiplication skills, alongisde playing Hit the Button and Monster Multiplication. It has been amazing to see the children's excitement at seeing their monster grow the more they develop their multiplication skills.
As part of our topic this half term, Team DB have been reading various poems about World War 1. The children have been really fascinated and enthusiastic to learn about this part of British history and have asked lots of questions including researching at home. This week we have looked at the similarities and differences between various war poems and the children have turned into poet detectives! We have looked at the emotive language that can be used by poets and how we can implement this into our writing, to create a reaction from the reader. Our unltimate girl will be to write our own World War 1 poem.
