Measuring in Maths 7.3.22

Today we went looking for things around the school grounds that were taller or longer than a 30cm ruler, shorter than a 30cm ruler or about the same length. We talked about putting items together at the bottom to make sure our comparisons were accurate. 

Challenge! Can you find things around your home that are longer, shorter or about the same length as a ruler?

Sharing our Core Texts

(2nd March 2022)

As part of our book week we had a very special assembly this Wednesday. Representatives from each class took the opportunity to share the book their class will be focussing on this half term. They went on to explain how their book fits into our whole school theme of ‘Saving our Environment’. It was a joy to see children sharing their enthusiasm of reading and looking forward to a half term packed with learning.

Welcome to Spring 2

This week we have started to look at one of our new core texts, 'Window' by Jeannie Baker. We have looked closely at how the view from the window changes and linked this with caring for our environment. We have looked at the view from each of our classroom windows.
