Monster maths challenge!

Class 5 this afternoon have been challenged to make a monster using different coloured cubes, with different values.

For example the green cube was worth 1 1/2, yellow = 3/4, blue = 2/8 red = 11/16.

Their task was to create a monster that had a value of 15 1/5. We discussed different approaches and strategies and decision making skills. We had a great fun, but challenging afternoon!

Here are some of our designs:

A busy afternoon in class 5!

We have had a fantastic afternoon to wind down from all the hard work and testing this week!

Woody came to visit; children worked hard to write algorithms and debug them; and we are now well on our way with our sewing project!

Maths angles!

In class 5 we have been brushing up on our measuring and angles knowledge. The children had great fun making polygons and applying their knowledge to calculate angles.

Class 2 enjoy storytelling by Class 5

This week, Class 5 have been busy writing stories with a twist. They wrote from different character’s perspectives. Some integrated characters from one traditional tale into another, whilst others wrote a traditional story with opposite characters. Have you ever heard the tale of The Three Little Wolves getting bothered by the Big Bad Pig?  Once the writing was complete, the children came into Class 2 to share their writing. Class 2 loved being read to by an older child and questioned them on some vocabulary choices.

Gruffalo Tea Party!

Thank you so much to everyone who came to the Gruffalo Tea Party! The children (and staff) worked very hard making the food and putting the decorations together and I hope that everyone who came, enjoyed themselves and had a lovely lunch. I know the children loved having you all join us!

On Wednesday afternoon and Thursday morning, all of the children had a go at making the different party food, from Gruffalo crumble to ‘scrambled snake’ egg mayonnaise sandwiches.
