Well done to Toby Boys, James Bourva, Holly Hooper and Abi Coomber, for representing the school so well at the ‘Summerfield Year 5 Maths Challenge.’
During the last week of term, children in 5 and 6 enjoyed working on a ‘Dragon’s den’ themed project, which culminated in a presentation on the last day of term.
Week beginning March 16th
Children from Mrs Rose and Mrs Dunn’s class helped the Yr1s in their PE lesson this week.
On Wednesday 14th January, Mr. James Pitts from King Alfred’s Academy spent time with year 3/4 doing some IPad training. They used QR references, sound recording and animation apps to support their work on Continents of the World.
Year 3/4 had a fantastic Victorian Day
Year 5/6 have been enjoying the launch of their ‘Come Dine with Me’ Topic with a “Sausage Making Workshop”. The children all had a try of a variety of sausages and some children got to use the sausage machine.
…and then they went to Pizza Express and made their own Margherita pizza!
Year 6 Science leaders hard at work!
…and Year 5/6 children working hard at science!
Year 5/6 Maths Challenge group.
For the fifth year running, an enthusiastic number of pupils from the upper juniors at Charlton took part in The Primary Maths Challenge, a national competition organised by the Mathematical Association. More than half of the two year groups wanted to take part, although we only had 30 places. We are delighted that so many children were keen to have a go! The questions require mathematical knowledge to be applied in different ways, and are designed to be quite challenging.
A special mention must go to…
Gold: Alex Parker-Towle
Silver: Sam Coomber
Bronze: Holly Hooper, Matthew Goodman, Mollie Simpson
Year 6 pupils from Charlton also took part in the DCBeagle Maths Challenge at St Edward’s School in Oxford on Thurs 6th Nov.
Competing in pairs, the 3 Charlton teams joined other Y6 pupils from schools across Oxfordshire, and worked furiously at the challenge, which was divided into three sections:
Find the Values which involved solving algebraic equations
Counting Down, an activity similar to the tv series ‘Countdown’
The Big Event, a selection of word problems.
A rewarding afternoon was rounded off by the ‘sausage and chips’ tea in the refectory – possibly the highlight of a very enjoyable day! Well done all of you.
