Why not have a go at home with these calculations:

13 + 42=
56 + 13=

To recognise Safer Internet Day, Y2 discussed different scenarios that could make us more or less safe online. Children then created a 'good' hand and a 'bad' hand to show their understanding of safe internet usage.

Outdoor Learning Week 4; Waterproofing

posted 1 Feb 2019, 01:21 by Lisa Wells

Our findings;
As predicted, slate worked really well, however many of the children were surprised to find that the cardboard was waterproof and didn't absorb the water. We discussed the length of time we were pouring water over the cardbaord and if it would sustain heavy rainful. Harry shared with the class his experience of making a boat out of cardboard and how it quickly sank, maybe we should make boats in the summer and revisit the properties of cardbaord and how waterproof it actual is.
