Our story so far...
We have started our journey by gaining a sense of what life was like during the Tudor period. We took part in a variety of activities which taught us about: early exploration, Tudor transport, food and drink, Kings and Queens, fashion and learnt some interesting facts through a quiz! We had great fun and learnt a lot - particularly that sea biscuits don't taste as good as they sound!
Maths madness and perfect place value!
We've started our Maths learning by investigating the place value of numbers up to one million. We decided to have a play around with counters and place value charts to help us get to grips with these larger numbers. Miss Clayton then challenged us to convert these into words and digits. Have a look at what we did!
