Maths Enrichment Day

 

Our Maths enrichment Day today had an Eco theme.  Our day started with a litter pick around the school grounds.

 

We then used HWB to record the data from the litter pick.

Our next activity involved us sorting recyclable materials is a variety of ways.

Mantle of the Expert

We were commissioned by Jack to create a map for his Grandma.  He wanted our map to use a key, be easy to follow and include key features.  Here are our maps.

Library Visit

We thoroughly enjoyed our walk to the library last week.  We listened carefully to Mrs Morris read us ‘Handa’s Surprise’ as part of our work on human rights.  After the story, we were treated to a drink and a snack in the Community Centre

.

Equality

According to the World Health Organisation 2/3’s of the World’s children do not have enough food to eat. 1/3 of the World’s Children either has enough food or too much food to eat.

We discussed our favourite foods and drew them onto paper plates.  Mrs Fielding had put a cloth on the table and explained that only 1/3 of the children were going to eat their feast at the table.  The remaining 2/3’s of children would eat a bowl of rice.

The children picked either a meal ticket or rice ticket from a lucky dip

We discussed that there should be enough food in the world for everyone.  However, just in this feast, the world’s food is not fairly shared and we tried to imagine how the children who only had a few grains of rice would feel.

Human Rights Activity linked to Harvest and Fair Trade

Mrs Fielding bought some oranges into school.  We tasted the oranges and investigated where they came from.  We found out from the label that they were from Brazil.  We found Brazil on the globe and we found out that it had a tropical climate.

We then talked about who had been involved in all of the stages from the orange being farmed in Brazil to it being segmented and us eating it in Knighton.

We sequenced these stages in chronological order.

We mimed each of the stages of production with our partner.
We then talked about how important it is for each person involved in the growing, harvesting, production, transportation of the orange deserve to be treated fairly and how important ‘Fair Trade’ is.

Welsh Artist Study

As part of our work on castles, we have been studying the work of Welsh artist Kyffin Williams.  We used his ‘Caernarfon Castle, Cennen Carreg and Conwy Castle’ artwork to create our own versions.

Celebrating Sukkot

The children have been investigating the Jewish  festival of Sukkot.  As part of the festival they found out that as part of the celebration Jewish people build sukkahs or temporary shelters.  Here are some of the sukkahs that the children made using a variety of resources.
