5th class have been working on Geometric Patterns as well as 3D shapes in maths lessons recently. Resource maths books purchased using P & F funds helped to provide creative ideas for running these maths lessons. One lesson involved constructing geometric patterns of octagons and hexagons with a challenge of finding the way to make a certain number of shapes with the least number of toothpicks. Other lessons involved constructing 3D shapes from plasticine, drawing them and then transferring shapes to isometric views.
In science lessons we have been planting seeds in half-egg-shells to investigate whether the roots of the plants will break the egg-shells. So far none have broken through but it is early days! The class is waiting with bated breath for the first egg-shell to break. Will it be a carrot striving to break through? Or perhaps a radish or basil? Or even the mysterious borage plant? Time will tell &. All resources were purchased from P & F funds with Mrs Moor using the cracked eggs to make staff lunches so nothing went to waste!
