We have been working on measurement activities. As a class we created an environment to suit all learning styles, which includes hands on experiences. This is what we came up with: Everyone can learn math to the highest levels.Mistakes are valuable. Questions are really important. Math is about creativity and making sense.

First Aid ⛑
As part of our PE programme we were lucky to have a First Aid session based around injuries at camp from St John.
