RE WALA Temptation: 

Our focus this half term is on Christianity and we will begin by looking at temptation and how we are all tempted at times to do something we know is wrong. Follow the power point and if possible talk with an adult about times in your life when you have felt tempted. Watch the video clip of Jesus in the desert to understand how we must be strong to try and resist our temptations. You must then complete the sheet by writing down examples of times when you have been tempted and how you felt afterwards, explaining how this would stop you from making the same mistake again. An example is on the sheet to help you.


MATHS WALT multiply 3 numbers


We will be applying our recall of known multiplication facts to multiply 3 single digit numbers. We will be looking at using the 'commutative' method where although we may change the order of the three numbers it won't change the 'product' of the three digits. We will look at different examples together and then you will need to apply your multiplication skills.
