Do you have a hope or a dream that you would like to achieve? This could be something you want to do at school or something you want to do when you grow older.

Remember a dream does not need to be completed over night... it could take time to achieve and there may be lots of little steps along the way before you can achieve your final goal.


1) Choose three different coloured crayons and grab a piece of paper.

2) First colour - draw an image or write a short paragraph sharing your goals and dreams.

3) Second colour - Write words to describe the skills you will need to achieve your goals and dreams.

4) Third colour - Write how you would feel when you achieve your goals and dreams.


Do you dream to become a nurse, carpenter, firefighter, chef, teacher, artist, author? There are so many things you can do with your life as you grow.

Maybe your dream is to own your own home one day or pass your driving test? It could be a footballer, gymnast, win an Olympic medal or become a superhero.



WALT multiply 3 digit numbers by a single digit number.

This week in maths we have been looking at multiplying a 2 digit number by a single digit  number sometimes involving exchange.

We will show you how to use  a Part - Part Whole model but the most efficient method will be the Column method and this is the method you should be using. REMEMBER TO LINE UP YOUR COLUMNS ACCURATELY AND SHOW YOUR EXCHANGE.



We can partition the number down into Ones, Tens and Hundreds and then add up the totals to find the product:


123 x 4 = 492


A more efficient method would be to use Column multiplication showing your exchange if required.


103 x 4 = 412



WALT - use the possessive apostrophe with plural words
