Oakmere loved their LOTC day on Tuesday!

During our LOTC day, the children had the opportunity to participate in a wide range of team building activities. They had lots of fun using their problem solving skills to imagine how they would survive if they had to live during The Stone Age. 

On Thursday, Oakmere celebrated World Maths Day! The children were first presented with the investigation 'If it costs 2p per every ten steps, how much would it cost to repaint the lines in the playground?' The children worked brilliantly together to think of a strategy to help them solve it. They realised that if they calculated the outside lines first and then the inside lines, it would ensure that they didn't miss any of them out or count some twice. After lots of hard work, they calculated that it would cost 48p! Our second investigation was based upon the book 'The Great pet sale' by Mick Inkpen. After reading the story, the children created their own pet shop by matching up the correct prices to the animals. They then answered lots of questions such as 'If you only had 10p, which pets could I buy?' and 'What is the most amount of pets you could buy with 8p?'. 

In literacy, we have started to read our book 'How to wash a woolly mammoth'. The children have loved getting creative and making predictions about how you might get a mammoth into a bath!

In our CARE lesson this week, we looked at the meaning of family. We realised that families come in all shapes and sizes and that it is love which makes it a family! The children loved sharing who is in their family and drew some beautiful pictures (I would share some but the children had great fun adding ages too - sorry mums and dads, i'll pretend I didn't see!).


Have a wonderful weekend,

Miss Lewis and Mrs Carroll
