Looking after our mental health: 
This week, we discussed the importance of taking care of our mental health. One of the ways that we can take care of ourselves is to share problems or worries by talking to someone.  We thought about the importance of talking about how you're feeling and to check-in with someone you care about.  We have brought home some 'talking' homework to share with our families at home. 


The First Olympics:

We enjoyed preparing for the Harvest Collective Worship and thought about the importance of giving thanks for all that we have.
 
                                                                   
 
 
                                           

In maths, our current focus is addtion and subtraction.  Year 3 are working hard on adding and subtracting three digit numbers whilst Year 4 are challenging themselves with numbers into the thousands.
