WOW!  Well done to everyone who took the time to celebrate maths by photographing maths in our community!  We have some wonderful examples that I can’t wait to display around school.
Here are a few examples:
We will share more as the week goes on!
Wednesday’s maths challenge:
What does 100 grams look like?  Can you measure out 100g into a food bag and bring it to school?  Last year we looked at what 100 looks like and it will be great to compare 100 and 100g!
Don’t forget Friday’s maths challenge is our Maths Dress up day!  We are raising money for NSPCC and our target is £500!  We are asking for a donation of £1 (minimum).
Thank you once again for supporting our maths week!  We have started well!

Dress up ideas:

Little lost evacuees

Today the children had to put themselves in a shoes of a 1940s evacuee child. Leaving home to go to the country with only the help of their teacher to find them and deliver them to a new home.

Here they are looking all heartbroken and worried about the thought of it happening to lots of children all those years ago.

Luckily for them, we all arrived back at school ready for home time where heir parents and carers were there to pick them up.
