Term 6

Weeks 1/3:  We explored a range of writers' maps to give us some ideas for creating our own Moorish story. We started exploring the regions of California, Andalusia and Sussex. In Maths we learnt how to measure using imperial and metric measurements. Try this convertor.   In Spanish we practised how to order food in a restaurant!

Weeks 4/5: In Maths we explored measures and used My Maths to reinforce our understanding. In English we wrote an epic tale about the Moors; we loved writing our very own stories. In computing we found out how to stay safe using email and social media and also how to program Excel to insert messages, depending on if the right PIN is entered. We also wrote some programs using FUZE. We prepared for the Uckfield Grand Prix by building our go cart and racing in it to see who is the fastest.
