This week the pupils in Year 6 Aspen have been improving their number sequence skills in Mathematics. On Wednesday the children logged on to the BBC Bitesize website to have a go at some number sequence games. Have a go yourself at working out the missing numbers in the number sequences below.
In Year 2 we have been investigating money. We have explored the different coins we can use to make a given value and how we can use coins to buy items. We got to go on a money hunt and had a trip to the local shop to buy items for our classes.
The Nursery children brought their teddy bears' to nursery for the day. They enjoyed sharing their learning experiences and playing with them in the indoor and outdoor areas. We made jam sandwiches and took our teddy bears' for a picnic in Forest School.
On Friday 10th November Roots to Food came along to Manor Way to teach the children the importance of eating a balanced, healthy diet. Through the style of the famous Ready Steady Cook! TV programme, Darren from Roots to Food lead the children on a positive feast of culinary colours and flavours, travelling to India and Italy! If you look at the bottom of this blog (after the photos) we have the two recipes undertaken by the Green and the Red Teams. Why don't you have a go cooking one of these at home?
