Around The Classes

Class 1E Geography

Class 1E have been learning about how data or information can be sorted and represented this week. In Geography, we looked at the benefits of using pictograms to give a visual representation and allow us to clearly see which category has the highest and lowest numbers. In what turned into a passionate debate on our favourite fruits, with apples and grapes running neck and neck for most of the way, grapes pipped apples to the post right at the end. This learning was then transferred into representing data collected in a house styles survey where the children made their own pictogram.

In maths, we continued sorting and representing data looking at properties of 2D shapes and seeing how many different ways we could sort them into categories. A venn diagram was introduced in order to solve the problem of some shapes falling into two categories of colour and number of sides.

Class 1E Science

In Science this week, Year 1 children were worried that Winnie the Pooh's umbrella had ripped in a storm!  They quickly became engaged, practical scientists testing different materials for a speedy repair job.  Their criteria was simple - it just had to be waterproof!

Class 2W DT

Pupils in Class 2W have been getting creative designing their own fridge magnets this half term, looking at the layering of different materials. 

They have created designs using corrugated card, on the theme of animals or TV characters, and foam, using the theme of geometric shapes. 

The results have been fantastic with lots of Junior Da Vinci's earned.

Class 6Y Measuring Maths

Class 6Y had great fun this morning comparing traditional and modern methods of measuring. Using a height measure and a measuring app on the iPads, the children recorded their height in centimetres. Many discussions were had about the most accurate way to use the iPad measure and it was a great way for the children to become familiar with this excellent new resource. We then went on to use our knowledge of multiplying and dividing by 10, 100 and 1000 to convert between measures.
