In Maths, we studied subtraction by use of the column method and also to demonstrate and cement our understanding of subtraction. We then worked through word problems involving subtraction (up to two stages) to develop our skills in Maths reasoning and fluency.


In English, we continued our topic of myths and Roman gods and goddesses. We learnt how Venus was born and her qualities as a goddess. We also wrote diary entries imagining that we were Venus about our feelings about being in love with the mortal, Anchises, while married to Vulcan, who she hated!


In Science, we learnt about the stages of food digestion and how the body processes the food that we eat by way of the digestive system. This followed our study of teeth, the first stage of that digestive system, and reminded ourselves of why it is so important to look after them.


In PSHE, we considered how groups, for example parliament, come together to make decisions. We talked about the parliamentary process and found out that one of our grandparents was an MP! We also discussed how we can take on a role in a group and contribute to the overall outcome - this can of course be either in a negative or positive way - we need to make sure that our contributions are always positive!
