Look at what we have achieved last week…..

This week we have been learning about distance. We have talked about how distance is measured and about being far and close.  We sent some Acorns to different parts of the field to talk about who was the furthest away.

We then tried jumping and seeing who could jump the furthest and we did the same by pushing cars down pipes. Finally, we decided to see which snail, Lionel or Turbo could move the furthest. We made out predictions and then left them to race for the whole of the morning session! They took a few wrong turns but in the end the winner was….. Lionel!!!


In ICT, we were introduced to the Beebots! We had so much fun exploring how they work and how to program instructions into them. We will explore these further in the coming weeks.


On Friday we celebrated the Royal wedding with a whole school enrichment day. We came to school dressed as Princes and Princesses. We enjoyed an assembly where Princess Marsden explained about what the wedding is able and who is attending. We then processed down the red carpet and out of the hall waving at the rest of the school. We had a morning of Royal activities including crown making, crown biscuit baking and acting out a wedding scene. In the afternoon we enjoyed a tea party with the rest of the school and played some games on the field. What a day!
