Direction and position in maths Week commencing 16th March

Direction and Position
There children have been learning about position and direction in a variety of ways.

In PE they practised positional langauge.

For dirction the children linked maths with computing and used the beebots. They had to programme the beebots by giving directions. These included forwards, backwards, left turn and right turn.

The beebots didn't always go in the direction intended but it was a very enjoyable activity.

A visit from the school nurse

Monday 9th March 
A visit from the school nurse 

On Monday we were visited by the school nurses, who told us about the importance of hand washing.
 The children put some glitter bugs on their hands. Then they washed the glitter bugs off and looked under a special machine which showed up the areas of their hands that they didn't wash properly. It showed up that the children need to take particular attention to washing around their nails and the back of their hands.

International food week Wednesday 4th March

Today we looked at Scotland as part of our topic on the United Kingdom. We learnt that Edinburgh is the capital city of Scotland. We found out about Edinburgh castle and Loch Ness. Obviously there was great interest in the story of the Loch Ness Monser! 

We took the opportunity to try some shortbread, which is a well known food from Scotland. 

International Food Week 3rd March

Greek Food
Miss Roberts' family originate from Cyprus so she spoke to the children about Greek food and explained how meal times is a time when all the family spend time together.

The children were fortunate to try some halloumi, which is a type of cheese. It was delicious!
