We have been working hard in maths on place value and  addition and subtraction using fact families. 


What materials are things made out of? We have been busy investigating the properties of materials.


In RE we have been learning about the Old testament characters and the special (and often difficult) jobs that God gave them. 

Can you name these characters and the special jobs they were given?
