On Monday we explored The Tempest at The RSC’s Clore Learning Centre in Stratford-upon-Avon. You were lucky enough to work with Nadia who has recently been in The Merchant of Venice and Othello.
What did you discover about the play? Which characters interested you? What is the plot of The Tempest? What are the themes of the play?
Tell us all here!
Here are a number of videos to show you different methods for multiplication. Some show you how to multiply by a 1-digit number whilst others show you how to multiply by a 2-digit number. Enjoy and feel free to post any questions. Practise your preferred methods with these questions:
35 x 6, 162 x 4, 83 x 5, 619 x 7, 118 x 3, 34 x 27, 173 x 23

As part of our PE sessions with the Northampton Town Football Club community department, we were given the opportunity to look round Sixfields this afternoon. We visited the home changing room, walked out of the tunnel, sat in the dug-out and even got to sit in the comfy seats usually reserved for the directors!
Our involvement with the Cobblers has not finished yet. After Christmas you will have the opportunity to attend the home League 1 match against Coventry City…WOW!
What were your highlights of our visit to Sixfields?
Last week we were invited to the Saints Study Centre Presentation Evening at Franklin’s Gardens. Saints player Nic Groom and mascot Bernie were on hand to present you with your medals and T-shirts.
What were your highlights of the time we spent at the Study Centre? Do you have a message of thanks for Pete and Jeanette? Post them here.
I’m sure that you have been studying your scripts over the past few days. Next week, we will be looking in depth at the four main characters of the play. What are Grandad, Grandma, Alice and Jack like? What have you noticed about them? What kind of people are they? How would you describe them?
Next week we will be focussing on subtraction. The first thing we need to know is how you do subtraction at the moment, so here are some questions for you to have a go at.
83 – 57 382 – 155 444 – 186 502 – 245 1625 – 717 3007 – 1999
Do them in your learning log and post your answers on the blog. Then watch these videos. They explain some subtraction methods which you may have used in school. What do you think? Do you have any questions?
There are many ways of doing subtraction and we have to find those that work consistently for us. You need one “go to” method that you would use for most questions because it always works. There may then be other questions that you use other methods for because it is more efficient.
We had an interesting chat about these numbers earlier.
Which is the biggest number here?
