Well done Class 5!


What’s in the box?

We can into our classroom to find a huge chest (locked), strange numbers on the wall and papers scattered over the floor! Quickly, we set to work to deciding how to get in.

We had to use a lot of different skills including:

  • long multiplication
  • adding several large numbers
  • trial and error
  • perseverance
  • deduction
  • team work

Eventually we cracked it! There was a tasty treat and a new book for our class!

What can art tell us about the past?

As part of our project ‘If a picture paints 1000 words, what will yours say?’ we have been studying lots of famous paintings. Recently we have been investigating the work of Lowry, who was an impressionist artist from Manchester during the 1800 – 1900s. He wanted to ‘put the industrial scene on the map’ something that had never been done before and provides an excellent source of information about life during that time.
