This week we have been using different resources to support our maths understanding. We have been using what we know to work out more challenging multiplication calculations. We used the smart TV to partition using counters, blocks and diennes.
Rehearsals are in full swing!
The choir have arrived safely at the O2 for Young Voices. We are just beginning rehearsals and can’t wait for showtime!
Today Year 3 were visited by Ancient Egyptians so we could learn more about the past! We were let into an inner tomb of a pyramid, helped solved challenges using hieroglyphs and artefacts. We heard stories of different pharohs, including Tutankhamun and Nerfertiti. Weveven learnt how to dance like an Egyptian. The children had a wonderful time learning about life in Ancient Egypt.
Children from each class celebrated their fantastic attitude and effort towards their learning this half term, with Mrs Quereshi. Well done!
Children throughout the school have enjoyed taking part in the National Hour Of Code this week. The initiative encourages children to become coders and problem solvers. The Year 5 children have enjoyed a range of activities with our volunteer computing expert, Simon Devon, which included coding robots and Microbits. Children in our school coding club also enjoyed a challenging coding session this week which they proudly demonstrated to their parents after the club, which turned into a mini robot wars episode in our school hall!
EYFS and KS1 also enjoyed learning how to Code using Osmo the iPad educational gaming accessory, which was expertly demonstrated by some of our Year 4 children. Our Year 6 children will also be taking part in a collaborative coding challenge this Friday, with a group of Year 7 and 8 secondary school children, via Skype in our computing suite.
The children have thoroughly enjoyed experimenting with new technology this week and have found it exciting and fun. Here are some photos of their learning.
