What we've been up to...
The children in Walliams maths class have really enjoyed their paired maths session! We worked in small groups to solve problems, paired with year 6 children from Shakespeare class. There was lots of super team work happening and the year 6 children were fantastic mini teachers. Well done everyone!
We loved our quidditch taster session! Each team worked together to earn points for their Hogwarts house: Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff or Slytherin. We played quidditch, dodgeball and even tried flying around on brooms! At the end of the session, the points for Walliams Class went to.... Gryffindor!
In Walliams Class, we have had a wonderful time celebrating Harvest Festival. Many children generously brought in donations to the foodbank and we enjoyed writing and performing our own Harvest poems. Have a look at our lovely Harvest poems below and don't forget to watch our video over on the Harvest page!
Whole school maths challenge
Miss Marsden has set us all a 'magic square' challenge to complete. It was very tricky! However, the children persevered and, using some excellent team work and fantastic maths skills, we managed to find a solution! Well done team Walliams.
Adam Bushnell Visit
Adam Bushnell, one of our favourite authors, has been into school! We spent some time with him thinking about Ancient Egypt, linking into our history and DT topics. Adam inspired us to design our own temple guardians, create a riddle that they would ask and then design what traps would await anyone who made it past the guardian! There were some fantastic designs and we all enjoyed the challenge of answering some fantastic riddles.
In Walliams Class we love to use our maths skills outside! The children have been completing number line relay races, place value hoops and rounding with giant number lines. We also enjoyed a game of guess my number, where the children had to use their maths skills to discover what number was on their back!
