In Math's today we went outside today to estimate and measure how many green cups the different bottles of water will fill. We found out that the milk bottles filled the most amount of green cups.

Today we used different kinds of bottles to launch our mice into space! We discovered that how far it can travel depends on the shape of the bottle, the material it is made from and how strong the force used is, as well as weather conditions (wind)!

Today we created out mice, ready to launch into space by a rocket tomorrow.
As part of our art, we have started weaving on looms and learning about warp and waft. We showed great patience and perserverance!

Today we took our metre rulers outside and measured all kinds of things to the nearest metre. We worked in pairs and recorded our findings on whiteboards.
We then measured each other and found out that Corey is the tallest and Elise is the shortest student in Oak Class.
On Monday 6th June, we launched our new topic, ‘All Aboard!’
We talked a little about how we would be learning about boats and the journey of The Mayflower to America. We thought about what we already knew and what we wanted to know during this topic.
We then had a 'Sailor Training' session to make sure that we had all the skills needed to take part in our voyage of discovery.
We had to show that we could:
- follow Captain's orders ('captain's calling' game)
- work as part of a crew ('islands' game with hoops to cross the hall)
- navigate with a compass ('compass points' game)
- steer a ship to port ('boat balancing' challenge)
The successful shipmates were awarded with a certificate at the end of the day.
