Exploring maps in Geography

Making arrays to explore commutativity in multiplication


Yesterday the children had their trip to Windsor Castle as part of their Castles and Coronations topic.

We saw lots of castle features and remembered their names from our learning.

We heard the brass band play at the changing of the guard.

We visited St Georges Chapel and saw the final resting place of her Majesty the Queen and Prince Philip.

We went inside Windsor castle where we were amazed by all the gold everywhere and took our time to look at all the spectacular details; we even laid on the (very fancy and clean) carpets to get a better view of the intricately decorated ceilings including one which was covered in different shields. 

We were soooo hungry that we had lunch early - an outdoor picnic (it was a bit chilly)!

And finally, we had a brilliant learning session all about Windsor castle's history and all the different defence mechanisms it used to use.


Here are some photos from our lovely day out.


Today we went to Sportspace for a Sports Festival and had lots and lots of fun.



Today in Maths we were ordering measurements.  We took our rulers into the woodlands and found different natural objects, we measured the objects in cm and then ordered them from smallest to biggest.


This week we wrote our own list poems on the theme of Autumn.  We all did an amazing job.  Today we practised reading our work using expression.  Some of us wanted to share our writing (and be filmed for the website).  We are all amazing!

In PE, our unit has been dance, we have been looking at shapes we can make with our bodies and how we can link a few different shapes together to create a pattern.  We then learnt how to repeat our pattern to create a dance.  Yesterday we put our movements to the music 'you've got a friend in me' from Toy Story.  We all did really well and got very into the music.  


In maths today we worked in small groups to add 3 numbers together.  We used cuisenaire rods to help us look for number bonds to ten to make adding the 3 numbers together easier.  We recorded our number sentences on our whiteboards.  We all did really well.
