Year 5 have been using their maths skills to accurately measure and draw a colour wheel, which we then painted.
Today Year 4 went out into the local area to use data loggers to record sound levels. Back at school they then transferred the data they collected into graphs.

Maths in Nursery.
This week in Nursery we have been talking about, 'Where We live'. We have used the small world dolls house and we have counted out the people in each room, we have also found the matching numeral. Some of us added '1 more' person to see how many people we had. We also counted how many people we had altogether, after placing people in two of the rooms.
Our focus text is 'Goldilocks and the Three Bears', so we have been, scooping, measuring and talking about the different sized bowls in the home corner.
Recording and presenting data
Year 3 have been learning all about magnets and forces. The children conducted an experiment and recorded their data in table. They then used their results to draw bar charts to help analyse their findings.
Symmetry in Art
Class 7 looked at the patterns in Anglo Saxon jewellery. They noticed that there was lots of repetition and symmetry. First of all, they had to use their symmetry spotting skills to complete a pattern and then they designed their own. They were done in ink, watercolours and then collage. I think they're gorgeous...but are they perfectly symmetrical?!
D&T / Life skills - Baking cakes! We measured our ingredients needed to make delicious cakes !
D&T/ Life skills
We went to Asda to buy the ingredients need for our cooking lesson. We had £10 to spend.
Looking for shapes!!
Year 1 have been outside in our school grounds looking for different 2D shapes! Can you name the shapes we found?
The Great Class 11 Bake Off
We had to scale up and weigh our ingredients.
We had to estimate circles of particular sizes...
We had to time the baking time of our biscuits.
We also had to time the cooling time.
We had to count the decorations...
... so that we didn't use more than our share!
Mrs Witton chose a 1st, 2nd and 3rd place.
Malaika was crowned our winner - well done!
In the first half term, Class 11 were challenged to improve their behaviour. For each session they stayed in green for, they earned 5 House Points, meaning they could earn up to 25 House Points per day for good behaviour. Each member of the class was in charge of calculating their House Point total and adding them to our chart each day. They had a target of 750 House Points out of a possible 825. I'm please to say that each and every member of the class met this target, earning them a reward of their choice. They chose to compete in their very own Junior Bake Off! As you can tell from the captions above, this was a great chance to use our maths skills. We all agreed that baking is the best way to practise maths!
Recording and presenting data in science
In Science, Year 4 were finding out about friction. They conducted an experiment where they had to use their measuring skills and record the data in tables. After this, they drew graphs and analysed what they had found.
