In Topic Maths we have been looking at lines, angles and turns.  Children ‘programmed’ their partner to make quarter, half or whole turns.  They learned the vocabulary of right angle, 90 degree turns, 180 degree turns and 360 degree turns.  Finally, we added clockwise and anti-clockwise to our directions.

Children went on an angle hunt in the classroom and found diagonal and horizontal lines.

The children have been creating and investigating their learning from fossils to volcanoes in our Term 1 Topic of Rocks and Soils.

Fossil Hunting at The Warren

Courtesy Class had a wonderful, adventurous time at The Warren in Folkestone!  We spent the morning exploring the rocks and digging deep in the sand for fossils.  After washing mountains of sand off, we enjoyed our lunch on the beach.  Finally, more seashells had to be collected before the ride home.
