Our Autumn 1 Learning

Two Ex-Miners came into school to share their experiences with the Y5/6 children.

Year 5/6B thoroughly enjoyed solving a jigsaw style puzzle involving their multiplication skills on Friday!

Year 5/6B had fun working out the solutions to multi-step subtraction word problems in order to match up the locks and keys.

Year 5/6B had fun using cookies to represent mining for coal on Friday. This was to explore why certain areas were chosen for mining and the impact building the mines had on the surrounding areas.
