Maths in Ash

Ash class have been busy exploring distance in maths this week. The children enjoyed taking turns to choose a vehicle and push it outside. They then used steps to find out how far their vehicle had travelled. Why not try this at home? You could measure how many steps it takes to get from one place to another, or go outside and measure how far your child can roll or throw a ball. 

Feelings

In PSHE this week, Larch class focused on understanding different feelings and how to notice them. In groups we studied a picture and wrote down all the powerful language we could think of describing how this person felt. Below are some pictures of our group work. 

Royal Observatory

Rowan and Pine class really enjoyed their trip to the Royal Observatory in Greenwich on Wednesday!  They were lucky enough to be guided through the galaxy with the help of the planetarium and were amazed by the fantastic photographs of planets, stars and the sun. A wonderful day to finish off our Earth and Space topic! 

Anti-bullying and teamwork.

Maple class celebrated anti-bullying day today with all sorts of activities, including designing and creating individual badges, which they have been wearing proudly, creating logos in a school wide competition and all sorts of discussions with many different people and teachers in the school to improve their knowledge of how to identify and stop bullying. We also spent part of today learning about the value of teamwork and working together. As you can see, we used teamwork to create amazing things out of newspaper and to aid us in some fun games!
