Starfish have been working really hard during our maths lesson today! We challenged our partner to estimate using a number line!  

The base 10 from the Y1 class went missing today! It turned out the whale in our classroom had eaten all of the ones! We worked together to find the most effective way of counting how many he had eaten. We found counting in groups of 10 the most efficient!

Year 1 worked really hard to follow their designs and create an algorithm for their space race in computing !

Amazing writing from this Year 1 today!

Starfish class worked really hard to create posters to show people what they can do to stay safe online.

Today in Starfish, we finished our puppets. We evaluated our puppets by discussing how successful our joining method were and looking at how well we followed our designs. We have really enjoyed our DT topic!

Starfish have been following their own designs, to create their puppets. They persevered when things got tricky! Well Done Starfish

Year 1 and 2 worked really hard on their #NumberDay challenges in the Starfish classroom!
