We really enjoy the challenge of problem solving in Maths and this week we have been thinking about the 'Albert Square' logic puzzle. This involved arranging numbers in a square pattern in order to meet a set of criteria - this was much harder than it sounds!
As part of our Geography topic on comparing different regions around the world, today we had a go at creating our own topographical maps using clay and water!
Topographical maps show the relief of the land - how steep or flat it is - using contour lines as seen from above.
We were very impressed with our maps which showed that the closer together the lines, the steeper the land! Afterwards, we used topographical maps as inspiration to create some paintings representing the Grand Canyon.
This week we are thinking about British Values and, in particular, the meaning and importance of Democracy in our country. Choosing people who we felt shared similar values, we have formed a 'Party' and, over the next week, we will be working together to produce a 'Party Broadcast Video' which will try to persuade the children of St Mary's to vote for us in an up-coming school-wide election! Check back soon for the finished videos!
