Know your place Mr. Digit!

This week we will finish our maths topic place value. Myself and the team have been really impressed with the children moving onto three digit numbers, some of us even working with four digits! Well done 3DN.

We’ve played many games, sang songs, chalked, used apparatus, base ten and even lego! We finished the topic with a quiz, showing great results. Take a look in your maths books next week, double smileys all round! 🙂 🙂

Below are some photos from our place value work…



Izzy, whizzy lets get fizzy!

In Science this morning we had a fizzing time!

Last week we learnt about the different states of matter: solids, liquids and gas. Today we looked more closely at gases. We carried out an experiment to remove the carbon dioxide from three fizzy drinks to see if it changed the weight of the liquid once the gas had been removed. Lets just say our experiment didn’t quite match our predictions but we had great fun learning why!


Lincs2Nepal Visitor

What an informative morning!

We had a fantastic morning with the very passionate Garry Goddard from Lincs2Nepal. Firstly Gary talked about the horrific earthquake that hit Nepal in 2015 and how he and his volunteers helped the locals at a very traumatic time. You showed great empathy towards the people and asked some very mature questions. Garry later went on to tell us about the schools he had built in Nepal and his water purification project. Again, you listened so carefully and was so interested.

I think we all came away thinking how very lucky we are, I know I did! Remember if you want to find out more you can visit their website:

I think maybe one of the most selfless people I have ever met, Garry Goddard…
