Maths 3D Shape Challenge!

Date: 15th Mar 2018 @ 8:21am

Today we worked together to choose the best 3D shapes to create a vehicle. We used construction that would let the passengers sit inside and we used shapes that were flat to create the body and long shapes for the wings.

Ramp Investigation

Date: 15th Mar 2018 @ 8:20am

Today we have been investigating like scientists.  We wanted to know the answer to a question

What is the best ramp for a car to travel down?

What we did:

We made ramps using the large construction, long building bricks and the big baskets. We put cars on the ramps when we had finished and we watched how they went down the ramps.

What we found out:

The bumpy basket ramp was slower than the smooth wooden ramp. This is because the bumps slow the cars down.

Symmetry Butterflies

Date: 15th Mar 2018 @ 8:19am

Today we completed an independent paired learning challenge.  Our task was to create a beautiful pattern for a butterfly with a partner. We had to remember to make sure we use the same patterns, colours and positions as our partners did so it was symmetrical.

They enjoyed the challenge of using the correct money to pay for the food.

Saltdough fun

Date: 15th Mar 2018 @ 8:13am

We’re making our own mini-beasts out of salt-dough today. We need to be careful and use our fiddly fingers to mould and pinch and create the shapes needed.

We’re going to paint them and display them on our mini-beast table

We are so excited about our learning !!

Date: 15th Mar 2018 @ 8:12am

A Space Adventure with Sean

Date: 15th Mar 2018 @ 8:11am

Sean is our coach and he comes from Manchester City to help us learn how to exercise and move in lots of different ways. He also teaches us skills.

Today he took us on a space adventure! Don’t worry, it’s not real, it’s just pretend. There were moon rocks to jump over and holes to avoid. At one point an alien chased us and we had to run away and hide! Can you guess which part of our adventure we are on in these pictures?

Ordering Length

Date: 14th Mar 2018 @ 4:43pm

Do you know what you need to do to compare the length of 3 objects?  We experimented and found out that the important part is to make sure they all start at the same place

If they don’t start on the start line then we can’t find out which one is the longest and shortest and which one is in between. 

After experimenting we could start them in the right place to compare length.


Date: 14th Mar 2018 @ 4:42pm

A mysterious egg appeared this morning! Who had left it? What could be inside? Do you know what could be in it????

Then we found a book and we were quite nervous about what we read!


Comparing weight

Date: 14th Mar 2018 @ 4:41pm

If you can compare the weight of 2 objects you can find out the order the weight of three objects. here are our steps to success

  1. Find out which one is the lightest off all of them.
  2. Then compare the other two the find out which is the heaviest .  
  3. The last one goes in the middle because it’s not the heaviest or the lightest

This is how to do it:

Heavier or Lighter?

Date: 14th Mar 2018 @ 4:39pm

Do you know how to tell if something is heavier than the other object? We do! Look at our pictures finding out.

World Book Day 2017

We swapped books with our friends, had an assembly to show off our outfits and listen to stories, we read books on the whiteboard.  There were visiting penguins and iron man and princesses and so many interesting characters to look at and talk about. 

In the afternoon we drew our favourite book characters to make a quilt to display around school.  Have you seen it?
