Literacy and Numeracy
We have had a number of rich mathematics opportunities this term. We have calculated quantities and best buys for a first aid kit for the paramedics, quickest routes and directions to help the fire service as well as calculated tidal times to help the lifeboat service.
Our language work has mainly focused on our oracy skills this term, we have learnt about script writing. The children worked in pairs to write and perform 999 emergency call scripts. We have also had interesting debates, discussing whether we we should reduce our use of technology. Unsurprisingly, the majority of children did not think this was a good idea!
