This week, we took our maths learning into the church and combined it with our RE work on Christianity. First, the children had to label the key features of the building, like the aisle, the pews and the pulpit. Then they had to guide each other from one point to another using language such as ‘turn clockwise 90 degrees.’ They used the Beebots to program in an algorithm and tried hard to reach their destination in as few attempts as possible! Most of the instructions had to be ‘debugged’ many times once they had worked out how far it moved each time. Thank you to Reverend Andrew for allowing us to use the building; it was a really fun way to learn.
We have been inspired to use the Mundesley Church as our classroom this week. We ventured down there in the cold weather and settled in to have an English Lesson. We learnt the names of some of the church’s objects. E.g. the font and alter, then did a bit of drama pretending to be those objects. The children’s imaginations and sense of humour really shone during this. As a result, the children’s writing afterwards was absolutely superb and they have tried really hard to use everything we’ve been learning about – I am very impressed! I think we shall be having more lessons there very soon!
