Y2 ‘Mathemagicians’ 3D shape

Today we were sorting 3D shapes on a Venn diagram.

We had to talk about the shapes and decide for ourselves how we were going to sort them (choose our own criteria) and then Miss Appleby had to work out what we had done.

(Fortunately she could – which meant we were right!

Harry and Eloise: Is it a prism and does it have right any right-angled vertices?
Charlie and Oscar: Is it a prism and does it have 8 or more vertices?
Gracie and Ethan: Is it a prism and does it have any right-angled vertices?
Maddy and Cameron: Does it have curved and flat faces?
Ryan and Zach: Is it a prism and does it have 5 or more faces?

Family Easter Bingo Night

A big thank you to all those who joined us for our Family Easter Bingo Night. With lots of fantastic Easter eggs to be one and two fabulous Easter egg hampers, it was eyes down and dabbers at the ready!

  

 

 

Mrs Neilson was our caller for the night.

And let’s not forget the two very lucky people that won those huge hampers.

 

 

 

 

 

 

A special thank you also to those that made it happen and helped out on the night.

Make Your Laugh Count – Red Nose Day 2017

We’ve been doing our part all week to raise money to help others less fortunate than ourselves to have a better future. Together we have raised over £600 – WELL DONE everyone!

A very BIG THANK YOU to all the wonderful parents and children who baked cakes and to all the children who bought and ate them for charity! A special thank you too to my maths group who have been giving up their break times all week to sell the cakes and raffle tickets.

   Put a nose on it!

  

We’ve had two exciting assemblies today. In the first assembly raffle winners got to choose a member of staff and then paint their face! Check out some of our other blog pages for some more pictures. Here’s Mr Willett – just another day as a minion!

   

This afternoon was what everyone had been waiting for…the chance to PIE a teacher!

Here are a few of the staff victims volunteers.

 

          

  

Jensen (with a little help from Mrs Augusta) was especially happy to choose Mr Willett for his custard pie.

 

Have a look here (just scroll down to find us) on the Grimsby Telegraph for some more pictures of our Red Nose Day Fun.

 

 

Finding missing coordinates

Today Miss A’s Maths Group were working really hard to solve some challenging problems, which involved finding missing co-ordinates in all 4 quadrants. They worked collaboratively to share their tips and methods.

Some even even decided they’d like to be the teacher today!

Here is Sammy showing us just how easy it is.

 

And here is Ruby explaining her very own ‘Banana Method’

 

 

 

 

 

  

 

 

 

World Book Day Fun

 

Who said Algebra was too hard?

When the group found out that today we would be tackling Algebraic Equations they all groaned, because they thought it was too hard…but not anymore!

After just a little practice, they worked brilliantly as Rally Coaches (which means they worked in pairs to alternately solve two separate sets of problems and explain to their partner how they tackled each one).

Ruby challenged the rest of the group to solve an equation that she made up!

If R = 11 and S = 6 what is R2 + S3?
