Watch the story of how our outdoor classroom deleloped!

To end our family learning week we had a fabulous time den building. The whole school took part in mixed age classes for the day. We designed flags, made models of dens then we went outside to build our dens. Thanks to all the grown ups who helped out. We had such an amazing day!

Today we had more fun all to do with sticks! We told each other our own stick stories using our story plans before going off to write them.

We worked in groups to design and build our own stick structures. It was very tricky!

We enjoyed playing a game of giant pick up sticks. It was such fun!

More stick week fun! First we went to the park and made a stick creature

Then we made a den for our stick creature. Thank you so much to the grown ups who came to help!

We looked at the work of a Scottish sculptor today, Andy Goldsworthy. We were inspired by his work and we used our sticks and natural materials to make our very own. What do you think?

Playing giant pick up sticks... You have to be really careful. We had to know which colour to choose and which colour we could get without disturbing the other sticks! It helped us counting in 2,5 and 10s too

One is a Snail Ten is a Crab

We read this book in maths today. We also read it during the amths workshop with parents. Can you think of calculations that mathc the story?

2 crabs could be 2X10 = 20 OR 10 + 10 = 20

I can make 100. 9 crabs and 5 people. 9 X 10 = 90 then 5 X 2 = 10

Look what we have found!

We had great fun running a mile for Sport Relief!

Look at our models of 3D shapes! Can you name the shapes we have made? What shape faces does the 3D shape have? How many corners does it have? How many edges?

We had a great time getting ready for the afternoon tea party. We made sandwiches and cakes ready to serve to our mums and grannies! We decorated the tables with homemade flower centrepieces.
