Life in Ancient Greece

First of all we researched the 5 different features, after that we talked about the features of a non- chronological report then we looked at the structure. Then we looked at the language that was used  before we write up our non-chronological report and edited and finally published it.πŸ“βœοΈ

Maths Place Value

In maths today we were learning to represent numbers to 10,000 and we were using the place value counters. We did differed numbers and lots of exchanging so when we come to add and subtract these numbers we know what to do. 



Bike ability was really fun and we learned how to ride a bike 🚲 on the road. We would like to thank Chris and Gary for teaching us to do this wonderful thing. It was hard on the first day but after a bit of practice we were confident enough to go out on the road.

Maths Problem Solving





So today we had done some math and we played a little game it is were you do three  awnsers and it is then say I had 9 25 and 16 then you have to finger out the numbers that made them πŸ“˜βœοΈ The answer was 0 , 9 and 1


Brass was really fun are teacher was called Mr Brown he showed us with pulse and rhythm!!!

We had fun, it was hard but we were successful. We passed the ball using our teamwork skills

Maths Problem Solving

The task was to make a coded 100 square but it was a little bit like a puzzle 🧩 and it was also a little bit hard! 

We eventually found a pattern so it was much easier to complete it. 

we had a few try’s before we managed to get the pattern and we got a little bit frustrated but then we found the pattern and then it was a lot easier to work together. 


First we we looked for the number 100 πŸ’― which was kind of easy because it was the only one with three codes and then we found the all of the ones with one code and then that pretty much finished it so then we all worked together and we were finished. 

English 20/09/2021

Over the next two weeks we are going to write up a chronological report using the facts we gathered up today.

We had a amazing time!!!!😁

Maths - Representing numbers to 10000

Today In maths we were representing ten thousands. With our whiteboard pens πŸ–Š we drew on the table to make a place value grid and used resources to show numbers up to 10,000. It got a bit messy but we cleaned it up and had fun.πŸŽ‰πŸ™ƒ
