In Maths we have been using lots of different materials and resources to link abstract numbers and operations with the real world!
This strategy is having a huge impact on the children's learning, and it's fun too.
Recently we went on a trip to BASF in Low Moor to carry out some science experiments in a real laboratory. We investigated filtering solutions, and made green slime!
More Maths! Fractions this time, using the blocks to 'see' the fractions before we added them, and vice versa.
Recently Year 5 spent a week's residential outdoor learning at Buckden House in the fabulous Yorkshire Dales. We had an amazing time doing all sorts of outdoor activities including, ghyll scrambling, climbing, caving, walking, pony trekking and exploring the countryside around us.
Everyone learned a lot about themselves, including how to be independent and how, when we push ourselves, we are always more capable than we think we are. Everyone had a fantastic time and we came home after a week happy, healthy and tired, with some amazing memories!
While learning about perimeter and area recently, we went and measured shapes on the playground and other objects outside, using trundle wheels and metre sticks.
Much more fun than measuring rectangles in our books, and it helped us really understand the process.
Unfortunately not the ones with chocolate chips.
