This week in Diamond class we have began looking at non-chronological reports. We have also begun to look at addition and subtraction methods, starting with concrete resources and moving towards the column methods.
We also visited the Bridgwater Carnival Centre and Carnival Sheds, where we learnt a lot about the history of the carnival and the traditions which take place. We also had a chance to look at the carnival floats being made. The children got to have a go at sanding decorations, spray painting parts and even wiring lights for the float.
The children had a fantastic time and has prepared them for their writing next week.
