Posted by leannetelford in Uncategorized    

Today in science, we continued our work about the digestive system by using augmented reality to see inside our own bodies. Using a clever t-shirt and app, the children were able to investigate the role of different organs in our digestive and circulatory systems, it was very exciting!

Tudor Maths Challenge

Posted by leannetelford in Uncategorized    

Earlier in the week, the children received a wax-sealed letter from Henry VIII requesting their help to unlock the golden chest. Their task was to complete some addition challenges in order to crack the codes and unlock padlocks! Fortunately, they were able to break the code and find the antidote for Henry’s alchemist… phew!

On Tuesday, we used the book ‘Centipede’s 100 Shoes’ as a stimulus for our Maths lesson. We were surprised to learn that centipedes only have 42 feet so it was our task to share out his remaining 58 shoes with his insect friends!
