Measuring Maths

We made our own reindeer food to practise how to measure.  We used the scales to measure out exact amounts.

Light experiment

Today we were learning to make predictions in Science. We talked abut light and what we already know before carrying out our experiment. We noticed that a picture of an arrow appears to flip over when we look at at through water! We talked about how this occurs as the light refracts. 

Christingle Service

We shared a special Christingle service together today. A big thank you to the church team for leading the service and helping us to make the Christingles and to understand the significance of each part.

Winter fun

We had lots of fun exploring the snow with our friends!

Fractions

We have been learning about fractions. We used multi links to make and compare fractions. We noticed that 1/2 is the same as 2/4. We also found out that 1/2 is bigger than 1/3. We then found out that 1/2 is the same as 0.5!

Twilight Event

A few pictures of tonight’s activities. More to follow soon. A big thank you to all those adults who stayed and helped out – Mr Salmon

PE – Tag Rugby

Repeated subtraction

Today we practised another way to share using subtraction. We used a number line to count back in the number we were sharing. We found the number of jumps we did was the answer to the problem. This is 45 shared by 5. There are 9 yellow rods (these are worth 5) so 9 is… Read more »

Science – Light

Today we performed an experiment looking at light. We made spectroscopes help us see what light is made up from. We then looked at how light is made up of different colours that combine to a ‘white’ light that we notice around us. Finally we wrote a recount of what we did and reported on… Read more »
