Year Six were surprised today when their orienteering involved an element of Maths. Instead of finding a number or letter at the control points they were presented with a calculation. It was tough running and thinking at the same time !
As part of their DT project, Year Six are making a stitched Blaydon Race souvenir. To do this, they had to learn different types of stitches. They spent a tangling time learning how to do a running stitch, back stitch and blanket stitch.
Year Six have been using an animation piece of software to create an animated snap shot of the Blaydon Race as part of our international topic on local history. They learnt very quickly how precise their movements need to be to make a steady animation.
