We learnt that you can use anything to measure! Your hands, cars, stones, cubes…anything! We also learnt how to use rulers in order to find out how long something is in cm. Remember to always start from the 0. Can you remember how many cm there are in a m?

Well done everyone for walking around the school 5 times wearing wellies to raise money for East Africa! The money raised will go towards supporting children to be able to go to school and will help local farmers to produce their own food.
This week we used the story ‘Handa’s Surprise ‘ to help us with our learning. We thought about how different countries are similar and also different and used fruit and vegetables to weigh and to help us with our maths. Big Foot Theatre Company came in and told us a wonderful story of Boone The Banana. We learnt about a fantastic artist called Kehinde Wiley who creates beautiful images of people in heroic poses and we tried to create our own. We learnt about Mary Seacole who was a nurse in the Crimean war, William Wilberforce who lived in Clapham and campaigned against slavery, cruelty to animals and education for all and Sadiq Khan who is the Mayor of London and who wants to create more houses and fairer wages for Londoners. The children then chose the one they looked up to the most and stuck a picture onto their print in the style of Kehinde Wiley.
This week we were learning about the Hindu and Sikh festival of Diwali. We thought about how people celebrate and how we celebrate different things at home. Some of us celebrate birthdays and Christmas or Eid. We learnt about the story of Rama and Sita and that people believe this happened many years ago. The people lit diva lamps to guide the way and celebrate good over evil so we made diwa lamps ourselves out of clay. We also investigated Rangoli patterns, mehndi patterns and did some addition and subtraction using candles.
