Google view in 3d

Thank you Freddy’s Mum for sharing this!

We have found something on Google some of the other children might enjoy. If you type an animal in Google and scroll down a little, you will see a box that says meet a life size (animal) up close, press view in 3d and follow the instructions it will open your phone camera with the animal in your own setting. I have also included a picture of the box you need to find.

Here are some more of the Giraffes using Google view in 3d

Giraffes home learning

Hi guys, we are really missing you but it has been lovely to see some of your photographs of your learning at home. Have a look at your friends work too and see if you could magpie any of their ideas.

Have a lovely week from Mrs Mottershead, Miss Jones and Miss Grogan x


Hello Year 6

Hello everybody, hope you’re all keeping safe and well.
I have really enjoyed reading your comments on the blog and seeing how well you’re doing with the challenges.

Just before we finished, I told a few of you that I had bought a jigsaw and set myself a challenge. How quickly could I finish a 1000 piece jigsaw? I thought it was going to be easy, but I was wrong! Last week I really got stuck into it and used some of my learning powers. I am very happy to report that it is now finished.
Let me know what you have been up to and share something that you are proud of. Take care

Mrs Thelwell


Coins for your shop

This afternoon’s activity is making a shop and exploring different coins to spend in them. Here is a picture of the different coins we have. How many can you remember? Look at the shapes, sizes and colours of the different coins. How are they the same and different? Which ones can you find in your house? How will you spend them in your shop?

You could add 2 items together in your shop and use 1p coins to count the correct amounts.

Happy shopping!!

Well done to Adelina and Parkash for completing Miss Carling’s challenge!
