Going for Gold! 14.7.2020


We have had a great start to the week in our Keyworker group! The school theme this week is 'Going for Gold' so we have been thinking about sporting achievements and discussing our favourite sports teams. We have been talking about Liverpool winning the Premier League in 2020 as well as their other recent achievements such as winning the UEFA Cup last June. We have also explored football kits from all over the world using the Ipads. Very importantly we have kept up our own fitness by completing another Joe Wicks workout! You can see us writing our own exercise routine based on Joe Wicks's activities. We used some of these in our own exercise routine that we practised on the field.Fantastic learning so far!

 Going for Gold Maths activities 14.7.2020


We have been doing Maths puzzles which involve using a key to complete a colouring activity. Great mathematical vocabulary came out of this.


 One of our Year 2 children predicted, “All of these numbers will be between 41-50 because they are blue for the sky”. We were very proud of her as she had needed help to understand what ‘between’ meant at the start of the lesson and by the end was using it confidently!


A great skill is looking at a problem and thinking of it in a different way to solve it. Our Year 3 superstar was looking at the problem  ____ x 8 = 48 and straight away asked himself “How many 8s are there in 48?”  Fab reasoning skills to solve a problem!


Well done all!
