British Science Week is nearly upon us (11 – 15th March) and this year the theme will be journeys. I will be encouraging the children to think about the different scientific journeys that happen everyday and how they can discover science through their own lives and experiences. Adam Baker (a scientist, parent and governor) has kindly said he would lend a helping hand during the week. We would be so grateful if there were any other parent/carer scientists who would like to get involved. Thank you, Miss Nakibinge. Please get in touch firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com

Here is an example of the multiplication method we’ve been learning this week. Ask your child to show you how to do the method. Then try these-

Next week we will be dividing 4 digits by 2 digits using the bus stop method.
