Pyramid Angles We measured the angles that the Ancient Egyptians had built their pyramid and learnt how this affected the height and […]
Yesterday, the children used their written instructions to help them make jam sandwiches fit for the Queen’s Jubilee! They practised cooking skills such as cutting and spreading and did a great job of following their instructions accurately! Some even used adverbs to really help them!

This enabled them to build successful sledges that raced down the propped up tables icey slopes of the Poles! We used the TASC approach to design, experiment, refine and test our sledges collaboratively. The end results not […]
