Year 3 Life Bus

Year 3 children had a trip on the life bus last week and learnt all about the body! The children had great fun and have learnt a lot! We look forward to learning more on the life bus next year.

Maths in Riley Class

Last week the children completed an investigation using matchstick shapes to support their understanding of division using their existing multiplication knowledge. It was a successful investigation- keep up the hard work Riley class!

Being a good sport!

Following on from a P4C session about winning and losing, the children in Cassatt decided it might be useful to make up some rules about Sports Day so that people remember to persevere, cheer on their friends, and congratulate the winners. Neirin got to work on creating a Sports Day rule book, and invited his friends to add in their own rules to help people on the big day.

The children flew with this idea! It is always a pleasure to 
see children inspired to grow their brains in choosing time!

Don't Roll a Six!

Today Miro had so much fun playing 'Don't Roll a Six'! 

Here are the instructions so you can play at home:

1. Roll a dice and write down the number.
2. Roll the dice again, adding that number to the previous number and writing down your new total.
3. Continue rolling the dice and adding the number to your total.
4. If a 6 is rolled, the game is over and your score is wiped back to zero!

What's the highest score you can get to?

The RLNI visit Year 1

Year 1 had a visit from the RNLI.
They talked about how to keep safe at the seaside.
Always swim between the red and yellow flags. 
 If the red flags are out it isn't safe to swim.

Life Bus Moore class

Moore class thoroughly enjoyed their life bus adventure this afternoon, learning about the balance between conforming with others and celebrating difference. The two highlights of the session were travelling to Conformatron and taking a peek inside our bodies!

Year 6 - criminal justice workshop

Today, the Year 6 children were very lucky to have a visit from a judge from a magistrates court. The children discussed the criminal justice system and the punishments received for certain crimes.  Children worked in groups of three to partake in some role play and shared their thoughts and ideas.
