In Maths today we will be learning about multiplication, focusing on the relationships between the 2, 4 and 8 times tables.

In English we will be starting our new unit of work on poetry and beginning to learn about Haiku poems; three line poems from Japan that need a special syllable count in each line.

In RE we will be sharing the story of the Parable of the lost sheep, thinking about the ways we can become 'lost' and how we can try to stay close to God.

Count how many there are and think about how many objects are hiding. For example: 2 out of the bag so there must be 3 in the bag hiding. 2 and 3 make 5.
