Kelham Class

 2nd - 11th September .

Welcome back to all our students in Kelham Class. We have grown in number from 8 to 12 so we are learning to get a long together. 

This terms Topic is 'Money Matters' and so it does in so many ways from how earn it to how to manage it and how to count it. Our lessons this term will all have a link to this topic.

For our first week back we have been looking at place value in number so we can prepare for looking at money. Though we cant get out at the moment Independent Travel lessons are underway looking at maps of our home areas and planning routes using technology. We have also made a good start on addressing our fitness or lack of it over lockdown.

Massive congratulations to the Kelham cross country running team, Ethan, Jordan, Connor and Luke. It was a testing course around Colwick park lake. We're not sure how far it was but it felt like a lot! Each runner ran one circuit to make up a four relay team. All four runners put in a sprint at the end. Huge thank you to the amazing support from the rest of the class. Mrs Swain, who loves a bit of running, managed to run half of each of the four legs with each runner so we gave her a cup of tea when we got back.

25th Sept 2019 - ordering decimals today by visualising what they actually were.

18th Sept 2019 - After two weeks planning, our enterprise projects are underway.
