Summer 2 multiplication links
As part of your homework this half-term, I have asked you to concentrate on your x tables up to 12 x 12. The following websites can be used to help you practice!
There are lots of other websites that you could use, as well as the my maths site.

How were the pyramids made?
This half term, we will be looking at buildings throughout history. We are starting by trying to answer the above question. We will do this by looking at a range of primary and secondary sources.
We have also begun working on the 'Archie project'. This involves the children performing tasks that will help people at home and within their community. The first set of tasks have been written up, and it is clear that the children have enjoyed doing a range of helpful things! More updates on this to come, including a community project that will see the children helping some of the older members of the village.
Here is a picture of one of our latest spelling boards.
We were looking at strategies for spelling an unfamiliar word. We agreed that a good strategy is to identify letters that you definitely know and try to work the rest out from there.
Autumn 2 update
Hi everyone, I hope you are all enjoying the new half term.
We have got some very exciting things going on over the next few weeks! Possibly the most exciting is the making of our marble mazes! The design process is proving to be tricky, but it will all be worth it! We will post pictures when construction gets under way.

Welcome to the Hawthorn class page for 2015/16!
We have had a very busy start to the term since I returned to work from paternity leave!
In literacy, we have concentrated on Greek myths. We look forward to Thursday 8th October when parents are invited to visit our class, as we write our own myths based on 'The Twelve Labours of Heracles'. The children have already created their own amazing mythical creatures to help them with this task! Pictures to follow.
In Maths, we have concentrated on understanding place value, mental maths and decimals so far. The children are all aiming to get their Superman times table certificates by the end of the year!
We have lots more to keep you up to date with as the school year progresses.
In the mean time, here is a great link to some fun times table games: http://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/7-11-years/times-tables
