    AMAZING MATHS

     

    Today we have started off our LENGTH unit thinking about the different ways we can measure.

     

    We looked at rulers to think about what was bigger - mm, cm or m?

     

    Pupils had a go at ordering these. We then thought about a 'km' and how it was.

     

    1km = 1000m

     

    Was our playground a km? Was it smaller or bigger? We used a trundle wheel to investigate. It turns out that our playground is approximately 50m.

     

    One member of the class was able to identify that you'd need 20 length of the playground to equal 1 km.

    TRIP TO THE WILSON MUSEUM

     

    The pupils went on an amazing trip to the Wilson Museum in

    Cheltenham. They went to see 'The Enduring Eye 'exhibition.

    This is an incredible photographic record by Frank Hurley of

    Sir Ernest Shackleton's exploration of the Antarctic, 1914-17.

    Newly digitised images reveal previously unseen details of the

    crew's epic struggle for survival, before and after their ship,

    The Endurance, was destroyed.

    FAMOUS EXPLORERS

     

    Buzzards is becoming very knowledgeable about an amazing Explorer; Ernest Shackleton.

     

    We are finding out about his part in the race for the South Pole in the GOLDEN AGE OF HEROISM.

     

    We have found out about his expeditions - DISCOVERY, NIMROD and all about the tragic TERRA NOVA expedition (led by Captain Scott).

     

    Now that the South Pole has been reached we have to think about what there is left for Ernest to accomplish!

    OUR NEW TOPIC

     

    Pupils are incredibly excited about our new topic!

     

    Here is a famous quote about Adventure. Do you know who it is spoken by?

     

    'I believe it is in our nature to explore, to reach out into the great unknown.

    The only true failure would be not to explore at all.'

     

     

    Good luck finding out who said this!
