In our science lesson today we had an excellent discussion about the ways in which humans can change habitats. We recognised that sometimes these changes are good; for example when we help built shelters for them or plant extra trees and plants. However, we also discussed how humans often have a negative impact on the […]
Our maths lesson was interrupted today by the evil villain, The Evil Takeaway! We set up our 4 digit number, 4567 using digit cards and diennes.

Today we made some fitness videos in our Science lesson! We have some very cool moves so why don’t you have a look and see if you can keep up with us? We tried to make each of our routines meet the four criteria we learnt about in last week’s lesson. They certainly made us […]
We enjoyed our second Computing lesson this week. We learnt all about algorithms – sequences of instructions. We used some cards to tell each other what to do. It was just like being a robot! We are looking forward to trying this out on the computer next week.
