We had a visitor to our class today.  Our concept this term has been 'Hope', as part of this we studied Christopher Columbus. Yesterday we prepared questions that we would have liked to ask Christopher Columbus and today he came to answer them. He found his way here with his telescope and compass and brought a rat with him from the Santa Maria.
Today we tested our ships to see if they would float.  We had designed and built them in the style of Christopher Columbus' ship,  The Santa Maria. Afterwards we evaluated our designs and discussed how we could have improved them. We had lots of fun experimenting with making the balance of the ships better.

Stand up Notts

On Friday our school participated in 'Stand up Notts',  encouraging active learning across all curriculum areas.  We had lots of fun in phonics, during English we went outside for 'Stand up and Move Speller'.  Our maths lesson was called 'Stringy Maths', in groups we had to race to find pieces of string tied up on the Fitness Trail. As a team we had to join the pieces and work out the total length of string we had found. We had a fun day.
