Measurement Masters! /

This week (after being employed by Formula One) we have been investigating scales to measure petrol consumption, distance travelled by each racing car and the height and weight of their drivers. After this, we have converted the units of measure- some of us even challenged ourselves to convert between metric and imperial measures!

Your homework this week is to practise your conversions of measures by investigating the Zooks on the game below.

When completed, why not challenge yourself on Satstestsonline?

World Book Day /

On Thursday (after dressing up as our favourite book-characters) we read a book called ‘The Dark’ by Lemony Snicket. After much deep discussion around the book, we decided to create our own advice that we would give to the character and anyone else with similar problems. We were inspired by Martin Luther King Jr’s quote below. IMG_0540 mlk

Social Class Debate /

Throughout this week we have been investigating different social class statements  and facts, deciding whether we agree with them and supporting our answers. Today we have used our debating skills to argue as to which social class should have had priority to board the lifeboats.

All children have been treated as different classes this week in order to really empathise with the people who were on board The Titanic.

Are there any further opinions you wish to put forward Class 12?
