With the temperature high, today was a great opportunity to use problem solving skills and investigate real world maths by taking the classroom outside. After recapping area and perimeter, 5C were tasked with measuring different parts of the playground – without any measuring equipment!
This term we looked at the painting process. We started by sketching pictures of flowers and then thinking about how we can show different shades of colour using chalk and charcoal. We then practised mixing colours carefully, before creating our final painting of a flower.
This term in computing we helped Mr Bulpitt solve the mystery of the missing cake!
We received an email asking for help and began to investigate. We got some written information and audio clips with clues. Once we had collated all the information we put them into a spreadsheet.
Using the filters on Microsoft Excel we were able to identify the person and solve the mystery.
As we were sending and receiving emails we also talked about e-safety, particularly with emails. We thought of some top tips and created posters to let everyone else know how to stay safe on the internet and particularly when using emails.
