A huge thank you to the team from Gateshead College who came in this morning to run programming sessions with our Year 2's and Year 3's. The children had the opportunity to program robots to move around the gym floor, making the move forwards, backwards, spin around and turn circles. The children really enjoyed the opportunity to explore programming the robots to follow their commands.
This week we have been working in small groups to solve problems using the four operations and completed number bond challenges.
Today we celebrated our love of reading with a Come & Read session with parents and carers. We shared our favourite books and completed world book day reading activities.
Today the children have read and learnt the story behind pancake day and how it is celebrated around the British Isles. We wrote a fact file and tasted pancakes with different toppings!
