Visit from TSB for Maths Week!

We had a fantastic visit from Tina and Philippa this morning! They came from TSB bank in Midsomer Norton to discuss budgeting with the children, particularly looking at the difference between needs and wants and how they need to save their money to get the things they want.

The children were really engaged in the session and talked a lot about what banks do and how they can help people with their money – its seems that all of Hawk class are going to be extremely successful and super sensible with their money!

Reversible and irreversible changes

This afternoon, Hawk class have had great fun investigating irreversible changes. We mixed milk and vinegar together to make a new solid and we mixed bicarbonate of soda and vinegar together to make a gas.

Can the children explain the chemical reaction? Perhaps they could comment below explaining what happened.

Anglo-Saxon Runes

Although some of us haven’t quite finished, these are some of our first, completed Anglo-Saxon rune stones. The children have worked really hard to write something that makes them unique (our value of the term) using the Saxon alphabet.
