Welcome to Turquoise Class


Another busy week in Turquoise Class!

We have been planning our Aztec stories and learning about the classic Maths puzzle, The Tower of Hanoi and recording our solutions. We took part in the Healthy Hearts fun run at Broadfield school and had magistrates visit us in class and created a courtroom drama.

Next week, we will be learning about special properties of number and writing our Aztec stories. We will also be taking part in the Ultimate Warrior event on Monday and a science workshop on Tuesday. It is also sports day on Friday morning with a family picnic at lunchtime.
