Multiplication and Division

It was so lovely to see many of you attend the after-school meeting to learn about how we teach Multiplication and Division at Holy Family School and how you can help to support your child at home.

I hope it was useful and for those who were unable to attend, the documents and presentation are here below.  Please print off and feel free to come and see me if there is anything you are unsure of.

Many thanks, Mrs Scott.

Class Assembly

What a lovely assembly the children produced all by themselves this term by creating scripts in English lessons.  I was a very proud teacher as they shared their team work to create dramas linked to our science plants topic (seed dispersal methods) and history topic (Stone Age - bow and arrow advert).  They shared reflective and thoughtful pieces written about our topic in RE, 'Journeys'.  Finally, the Rock and Roll dance routine that they had been creating in groups was performed with hip wiggling and gusto - well done all of you.

Spring 2018 - Class Worship

Happiness and Relaxation - December 2017

After a week of assessments and three Christmas performances, the children in Year 3 decided to have a Happiness and Relaxation morning straight after.  So we bought in blankets, a cuddly toy and slippers and snuggled up on cushions to watch a DVD together.  It was lovely and much needed after all their hard work.

October 2017


We have participated in many tasks and activities to learn about England.

Treasure Trail Map work: recognising the invisible longitude and latitude lines that help navigation around the globe.  Children recapped their knowledge from Year 2 on naming continents and seas/oceans.

Outdoor Essex County Activity: the outside boundary of Essex was created with chalk and ropes.  The children then had a map of Essex and had to identify where certain cones were in relation to Witham and which towns or villages they represented.

Front cover work: the children coloured a map of the UK and identified the areas which are part of it.

Laptop and atlas work: the children identified rivers in the UK and labelled these using an atlas and map to work out which was which - and which part of the UK they were in.

Definitions Game: children used their recent knowledge of new vocabulary introduced about rivers and matched definitions to words - a dictionary was used if they were unsure.  We shall play a game with this later in the term.
