More Measuring in Bowfell

This week has been all about estimating and measuring in Bowfell.  We started with a treasure hunt all around school on Monday trying to find the objects in our photographs.  Once we had identified the pictures; we each estimated the length of the objects before we measured them using unifix blocks.

On Wednesday, we started to explore capacity and volume.  We have learnt lots of new vocabulary like: greater than, smaller than, half full, empty and full.  We worked well together comparing different containers; sometimes we were surprised because they could hold more or less water than we expected.

Next week we will be having more fun with our learning when we move on to weighing!

Meet our 2017 Eco Team!

At lunchtime today, Eco Team had their very first official meeting with Miss Dawson. It was very productive and the team have thought up lots of fantastic ideas to encourage the school and the community to care for the environment. Just a few ideas discussed include: creating an Eco Code, organising a litter pick, creating posters to display around school (saving electricity, looking after plants, not littering), an Eco Book and even adopting an endangered animal such as a Red Squirrel.

We will be meeting again next week to make a start on these ideas! We will keep you posted with our exciting news.
