Today was the second of two incredibly exciting maths days. Year 6 completed a doughnut challenge (we were even allowed to eat them afterwards)! We also carried out lots of different investigations including a leap frog challenge, number patterns investigation, money investigation. In addition, we did a treasure hunt and maths art. Finally, we had lots of fun playing our board games which we had brought in from home.
The teachers said, "It was lovely watching some of them teach their friends how to play their games."
On Thursday 17th October the whole school enjoyed a science day. In Year 6 we went pond dipping and learnt about germs including how far our germs will fly when we sneeze!
The children enjoyed finding lots of interesting pond life including: dragonfly nymphs, phantom midge larvae, blood worms and pond snails. They identified these using a key.
We investigated how well we clean our teeth and were surprised to find it was much harder than we thought to remove the pink stain from our teeth. We were also amazed at how thorough we need to be when washing our hands to remove all the germs.
