How long could the UFO have been travelling for? Maths investigation.

Year Six are using this Sway for their learning in maths today – the amount of maths involved in such a simple task is astronomical! Some great learning around science taking place too.

Great PE Lesson Today!

Well done to Year Six on working very hard over the last couple of weeks (and beyond). This week ended with a fantastic PE lesson: we began with a communication and collaboration activity which required a lot of compromising, discussion and problem solving. Following this, each Year Six student joined up with a Year Three student and they coached them in three areas: hammer-throw, standing long jump and speed bounce.

Here is a Sway that shows some good pictures from the afternoon.

Well done to all of the Year Six students – some great skills on display. Definitely some coaches of the future out there this afternoon! Great to see:

  • Effective feedback being given.
  • Modelling by students.
  • Praise given where necessary.
  • Comfort for those who were struggling.

Due to all of this, the Year Three students had a great time and all of them improved one way or another! A big thank you to the Year Three students for listening so well and being engaged from start to finish.

Thanks,

Mr Prosser
