Well done Team 3! We really enjoyed decorating the classroom on Monday, thank you parents and grandparents who joined us. I believe we made the longest paper chain in the history of Friarage school!
In maths we are getting to grips with multiplying and dividing by 10, 100 and 1000, and by multiples of 10. Thank you to all those who are helping and supporting children to learn these important facts.
We have also been reviewing our team rules. Your children have thought carefully about what is important to them and to us as a team. I feel they have chosen rules wisely. With everyone trying their best to keep them, it is no wonder team 3 is such a lovely place to be!

This week we have been trying to get to grips with multiplying larger numbers together. Please do help your child learn their multiplication facts as it makes things so much easier.
Each child had been researching a King or Queen from British history. They are becoming experts on their chosen monarch. Do ask your child what they have found out, some of the facts are very interesting. Did you know how tall Queen Victoria was?
