Today, during Maths, and as a treat from tests that they have had to endure, the children got to experience working on Mathletics on the iPads. The children love mathletics, and it is such a fun way to get them engaged and hard working.
Today, they had some problem solving questions to answer, before they could continue playing 'Multiverse' which tests their knowledge on factors and multiples.
As you can see, the children are all thoroughly engaged and enjoying themselves!

As part of mindfulness week, the children got to experience a yoga session, which involved them laying still and quiet (for once!) and practising different movements around the classroom. The children enjoyed this immensely thought provoking session and had lots of fun playing the different games.

This week in Science lessons, Year 6 were investigating the effects of light filters.
Last week we learned that ‘white’ light is actually made up of all the colours of the spectrum, and that refracting the light through a glass or plastic prism causes the different colours of the spectrum to become visible. This is because the different colours travel at different speeds and refract at different rates, meaning they actually refract at slightly different angles.
We investigated what kinds of effects looking at objects through coloured filters had; we found that the filters made everything look different…
For example, looking at a yellow object through a red filter made it appear orange, and looking at the same yellow object through a blue filter made it appear yellow! We then remembered about colour theory, and how to mix the 3 primary colours (red, yellow and blue) to make the secondary colours.
Do you know how to make the following colours by mixing the 3 primary colours?

They were intrigued by the animals found under the special umbrella Beryl had and demonstrated gentle/kind gestures towards their special ladybug friend who came to visit.
Thank you Beryl for having us!
After a busy day rehearsing for the LKS2 School Play, 3NL had a relaxing time learning some Yoga poses and breathing techniques yesterday.
Year 1 thoroughly enjoyed the Yoga lesson by Beryl. We especially liked the animal sequences and the mindfulness games!

Nursery children began to demonstrate the ability to independently walk up and down flights of stairs safely while keeping left and holding onto the handrails on their way to their mindfulness and yoga class today.
They really enjoyed discovering new yoga moves and learning about being calm and gentle for their special visitor - the ladybug.
Well done Nursery and a big thank you to Beryl for having us!
