An exciting delivery of sand!

Although we love playing in the Reception sandpit it has been looking a little bare recently! Today we started helping Mr Carter move the …8 TONS of sand into the pit. We didn’t even manage to move half a bag and we had already moved 7 wheelbarrows full. Havyar was great at smoothing the sand out in the barrow to fit in as much sand as possible! Lots of children were keen to help us load the barrow with sand!

Year 4 Cuisenaire rod exploration

Before beginning our Fractions unit for Year 4 we have been exploring the relationships between different Cuisenaire rods. It was really interesting to hear lots of the Maths talk around the room ‘This one is equal to two of the green rods.’. ‘I notice they all equal the same amount when you put them together.’

This was really useful to get children thinking about fractions as equal units and the concept of wholes of different sizes.

Night light creation!

In Year 4 we have been creating night lights today as our D&T of this half term. We did some product research; considered our target audience and designed our prototypes. We then gathered our resources and got stuck in with feathers, beads, paper, card and paint!
