Anything Is Possible!

This is our overarching topic for the Autumn Term 2017 and in Green Class we had an exciting first few days back exploring this by mummifying oranges and making towers out of spaghetti and marshmallows!  Through these challenges we learnt how important it is to persevere and work as a team.  We have also started learning how to 'Grow our Brains' through having a positive attitude towards our learning.  We also wrote our Class Charter, you can read it further down this page.  You will find more details about what we are learning about this term on our Class Newsletter.


Week beginning 10th September:

This week we started a block of work in Literacy on Instruction writing and today we followed instructions and made our own jam sandwiches.  In Numeracy we have been reading, writing and ordering 4, 5, 6 and 7 digit numbers. 


Next week:

We will use what we have learnt about instructions to write our own set of instructions on mummification.  In Numeracy we will be counting up and down in 10, 100 and 1000 and rounding to the nearest 10, 100 and 1000 as appropriate.  In Science we will learn about Friction linking it to how the Egyptians moved the 2.5 tonnes blocks of limestone on sledges.
