Maths: Estimation Station

This morning Year 1 had so much fun measuring different objects round the room in centimetres. The children had to estimate how long the objects were first with a partner. 

We also discovered what sorts of jobs used measuring, the children found out that builders, roofers, architects, chefs and artists use all sorts of measuring tools.

Can you tell someone at home what was the longest object you found in the classroom?

Educational Visit - Skipton Castle

Year One had a fabulous time at Skipton Castle this week.
We learnt so much about the history of the castle and what kinds of people lived and worked inside.
All the children were so sensible and we all had lots of fun.

Can you remember a fact from Skipton Castle? If so, can you tell someone at home?
