School trip fun

Yesterday, Turquoise class had a fantastic trip to Bough Beech and we were lucky enough that the rain stayed away!

We had brilliant tour all around the reservoir and even got to see the exact filtering and cleaning system that the water from the reservoir goes through to make it safe for us to use in our homes. More pics to come!

Hey big spenders!

As part of our Dragon’s Den projects, we have been learning about how to budget and spend our money. Turquoise class were given a budget of £100,000 and were allowed to choose however they want to spend it. Some were very practical, spending their money on furniture, trainers, a car….

others chose to spend their money on some more luxurious items… a Rolex for £10,000, a Mercedes G Wagon for £85,000 and an iPhone X (and air pods) to name a few! We even had a water jet pack for £25,000 thrown in the mix!Turns out Turquoise class has rather expensive taste 💰

Decimal place organisation!

Welcome back turquoise class and I hope you all had a fantastic Easter break!

This week are learning about money but to make sure we are really confident, today we compared and ordered decimal points. We thought of our own number (wto two decimal places) and then we ordered them from largest to smallest. We worked in different groups such as our different house teams, boys vs girls, different types of ties and more! Great fun was had by all!

The interrogation begins…

In English, we are continuing with the Dragons Den theme. Today, pupils took turns to face the Dragons in their group and had to pitch their (challenging) ideas and face the intense questioning and interrogation! Some of the Dragons even had Miss McKee nervously thinking about how to answer their gruelling questions! What a fun lesson! Watch out Deborah Meadon 👀🐲

Dragons Den

Year Four are working on their very own version of Dragons Den! We have started to think of creative ideas and designing new products. This day we completed ‘the brick challenge’ and created products using a brick, then we pitched our ideas to the class!
