Spring 2

Walkley is teaching maths mastery and the children are concentrating on an aspect of maths for weeks at a time. This means they can show their understanding with 'varied fluency' Whatever way we present a challenge to the children they have been able to show they are experts:

Comic Relief @ Walkley

It was a really fun assembly today. Not only did we celebrate our award winners but some of the teachers told some terrible jokes. The highlight for me was being able to play Mr Wallis's drums for each punch line. Although we had a normal day of learning, we found time to take a couple of pictures:

We began by finding out what was heavier and lighter between 2 objects. The children were aware that size didn't always correlate to weight. Later in the week the children chose to use blocks as a measurement unit to record weights.
