The Christmas countdown is on and we will be enjoying a week of festive fun. In maths, we are going to be designing multiplication maths Christmas cards and these will be available for sale as part of the maths share on Thursday. The children will be working out how much they need to charge for each card, in order to make a profit and earn back the expenses spent on the materials! We will continue our RE work on Advent and to end the term, there will be a Christmas Party on Friday. We are hoping that the sales from our Christmas cards on Thursday will help to fund some treats for our party!
This week in class 6 our Christmas Maths project will be involving area and perimeter and solving a problem to calculate the size of a gingerbread house.

We are combining Literacy and Science this week and the children will be writing an explanation page about how the eye works.
Last week the children explored their number bonds to 10 and 20 in maths. These should become embedded facts by the end of the year.

Things you can do at home to help your child

· Practice the times tables (2 ,3, 4 ,5, 8 and 10s) with your child, greater fluency will significantly improve your child’s Maths.
