# Star Christmas cards

We read the Christmas story with lovely golden illustrations that told of the star leading the wise men to the stable.

We made beautiful star Christmas cards which we are very proud of. We had to cut out a silver or gold star and decorate tracing paper with sharpies then cut a star out of that. We rotated the tracing paper star to fit in the gaps. We were delighted when we saw the 2 stars intertwined.

# P3 say Thank you Santa for our new toys

# Multiplication Madness

Adam and I have been trying out some different methods of multiplying big numbers. We tried the gelosia grid method and drawing lines. Both of these worked amazingly well. We enjoyed investigating these ways of multiplying.
