Welcome to Lambton – Years 3/4
This term in maths, we have been learning how to add, subtract, multiply and divide using a range of written methods including short multiplication and division. We use all of these skills to solve big maths challenges on a Friday, which we enjoy and like to move up to harder levels.
We have spent lots of time studying Ancient Egypt and produced some excellent mummification information guides. We read the story ‘ The Egyptian Cinderella’ and compared this versions to other versions from other countries and cultures before writing our own story.
Lambton class had a brilliant time on world book day with most of the children dressing up as their favourite book characters! We spent time discussing our favourite books and reading new ones.
In art we have been learning about different types of collage and focused on the artist Henri Matisse. We found out the French artist made collages using a technique called ‘Painting with scissors’. Lambton class worked in pairs to create our own versions – they were very interesting and successful.
In P.E Lambton class are currently studying tennis. We are working with a coach to develop our control skills and have been having fun practicing our new skills!
