Fitness fun

On Thursday we held a very successful event to raise money for Project Cambodia. As part of the "Girls Make it Happen" project, girls and their mums were able to come and take part in a fitness club. Even though it was really tiring, everyone had a fantastic time- which showed from the huge smiles.

Well done to everyone who took part and thank you to all the parents that attended.

A massive thank you to our PE apprentice, Mr Sansum, who put in a huge amount of effort into organising and running this event.

Impossible maths

Can a square be a circle? Can a straight line be curved?

Those were two questions that class7 investigated in maths today.

(and we also used this website to discover how to make a circle square)

Names in blocks

Today's maths in class7 was based around writing names using squared paper. Once the pupils had written out their name, they counted how many squares they had used, and then we turned their 2D names into 3D names using MineCraftEDU.

Each child was given just enough blocks to make their name. How would they get on...

Chalking Letters

Today in class 7's math lesson we used compass directions to make chalk marks on the playground. We had no idea what shapes the instructions would make until we had finished, but we discovered that we were chalking out capital letters.

Perimeter and area investigations

Class 6's maths group were introduced to perimeter and area today. As the sun was shining, we went outside to investigate the perimeter and area of certain parts of playground. Everyone worked brilliantly in groups and were able to successfully work out some tricky calculations. Well done everyone.

Creative Maths in Class7

This morning in maths cl7 were set a challenge involving trying to work out how many 1mcarpet tiles would be needed to cover the floor in the new hall.

After a bit of thinking about how we might work this out, we headed to the hall and began to discover just how big the hall floor was...
