World of Work Week

We have had some very interesting people come into school this week and talk to us about their occupations; engineers, drama, health visitor, police, scientists, musicians, pest controllers, paramedics, doctors and many more.  It has really made us think about what career we might like to pursue when we are older. What an inspiring week!

PEST CONTROLLERS – tasty work!

Maths Mania

There was madness and great enthusiasm in school today as all pupils where learning and improving their Mathematical skills. 


We have had a very busy day in Early Years, using our mathematical skills to solve lots of number, shape, space and measure problems. When we arrived at school, we had to sort our water bottles onto the correct shelf to say if they were full or empty. We then had to change them throughout the day as we drank our water. We used magnets to hunt for coins in the water then worked out how much we had found. We used the iPads to explore position and direction. In the sand, we hunted for 3D shapes and used them to make models. In the maths area, we used the Numicon to find ways of making different numbers and recorded them on whiteboards. Then we paid for our snack and used the scales to find out which snack was the heaviest. We even had time to solve addition problems with Cheerio’s and have a game of hopscotch.
