Maths:

 

In Math this week, Calico Jack asked us to help him round the number of smelly socks he had, to the nearest 10. Calico Jack gave up stripy socks, black socks, white socks, grey socks and pictures socks.Children enjoyed learning that numbers less than 5 rounded down and number 5 or more rounded up. This could be a great home learning opportunity by rounding how many teddies, pieces of Lego or toy cars they have at home. 

Robert Mitchell:

On Wednesday, we had a fun morning with international high jumper Robert Mitchell. All the children took part in a fitness circuit. Children in Year 2 really enjoyed the fitness circuit and worked hard to challenge their self’s. After break time, Robert Mitchell gave a fantastic assembly about fitness and healthy eating.
