Term 1

Bettshanger!

Tolerance class went to Bettshanger park as part of our orienteering topic. We were initially apprehensive about the weather but the sun came out and we had an excellent day. Firstly, we took part in cycling: we learnt how to perform a safety check on our bicycle and we tried some off-road cycling! Secondly, we learnt how to accurately shoot a bow and arrow in our archery sessions. Finally, we split into two groups for an orienteering competition!

Polydron!

As part of our maths lessons, Tolerance have been Adventurous Aardvarks and have been using Polydron to explore different 3D shapes. Tolerance were given a list of different 3D shapes to make. Once the shapes were made, we then unfolded the shapes to show the nets for each shape!

Learning Lift Off!

Tolerance class have started our new topic ‘The Earth and Beyond’ with our learning lift off. The class had to work in pairs to design, create and test a rocket that would travel through the air. We were Collaborative Cats and shared our ideas throughout the day. Take a look at some of our rockets!
