The One Where We Use No Pens

Today, we had our second ‘No Pen Day’ of the academic year! Along with that, we had some of our parents come in to school and see their children learning. The parents enjoyed coming to learn some maths and watch the children tackle some challenging work – loop card games involving fractions, decimals and percentages and a square number problem where children had use patience, resilience and determination to find a solution. We also spent our morning looking at different ways on how we could practise our spelling without using pen and paper. We thoroughly enjoyed the ‘Taboo’ game where we had to describe a particular Year 5 and 6 spelling. In the afternoon, we learnt about adaptation and mutations – how plants and animals adapt in order the survive in a certain biome.
