As part of our science topic of rocks and soils we have been investigating the makeup of our planet. With only a set of keywords we have been researching the different layers that make our planet and what they are made up of. We used the IPads as research tools for our investigation

Roman alphabet

Today we have been looking at Roman schools. We used the Roman alphabet to make some secret messages. Can you read them? We noticed that a lot of the Roman letters are similar to our modern alphabet.

Angry Birds Space Place Value

In maths this term we looked at place value using Angry Birds Space.
We took it in turns on the whiteboard to play the game and then divided the score in to hundreds, tens, ones etc. If you got it right you had a chance to play the next bird.
We managed to get to work up to tens of thousands which was brilliant. We could divide these numbers into hundreds, thousands, ones whatever the question required.
Also because we used the space version we were able to discuss gravity from our forces topic last term.
It was a really fun way of learning maths and can be used on any games you play.
