We have been learning about measuring in maths this week. We have learnt to measure in metres and centimetres. Today we had to draw large pictures on the floor using the measurements given.
A BIG thank you to all the parents and children of Wingrave School for all my lovely cards, flowers and gifts. I will let you know what I buy with the vouchers. I hope you have an enjoyable half term. Fingers crossed I will soon be able to return to school. Mrs Britnell
A couple of images to give you an idea of the interview on Skype with Laurens this week.
The children took a while to get used to the way to communicate with Skype (slow, clear voices and short,well formed questions), but finished feeling quite amazed that it was so easy and a great way to connect with someone really working in the field (and has been to Antarctica and survived in extreme climates).
Thanks to Mrs Grindle, this was sent on and Laurens has already written back to say how much he enjoyed the questions and enthusiasm from the children to share their learning and express genuine interest.
It may be possible to meet Laurens in the future (but this time in the flesh, when he visits the UK).
For now, we will use some of his comments, excepts from his book and base further class learning and research more generally on conservation work, which helps us understand the dangers facing wildlife, tribes and nature across the planet, especially in the polar regions.
We would like to thank all the children who entered the competition, we received some brilliant designs, which made it very hard for us and Mr. Kaye to pick a winner and two runners up! However, after much deliberation it is our pleasure to announce the winner is ...
Ruby aged 7, well done.
