We read a problem from a farmer.... she had 20 sheep and 2 fields. There must be at least 1 sheep in each field. How can she do it?
We worked together using our knowledge of number bonds to 20.
This week we thought carefully about what a great spaceship would need. Maybe a control room, laser beams or a teleport.
We designed them and then made them using junk that we collected from around the classrooms.
We thought about what Article 15 (the Right to meet friends) means to us. We reflected on how lucky we are to have friends and that we have the freedom to meet them at after school clubs.
We designed a poster to show the Right. The best one will be made into a big piece of art work with our artist friend Benny.
This term we are looking at money!
We started by ordering the different coins and notes. Then we had a think about the cost of items such as a new car, a chocolate bar and a pair of trousers.
We were amazed when we came to school today, to discover that aliens had crash landed at Alston School, during the holiday!
We saw a video showing the crash landing.... we couldn't believe our eyes!
Then we were able to explore some of the things that had been left behind. Shiny things, rough things, smooth things, sparkly things.
