The class had a great time today solving problems practically as well as investigating prime numbers. Children were intrigued by Mr. Harding’s t-shirt and some of them explored the concept of pi! Orienteering activity was to find answers to calculations.
This afternoon, the children considered how the 5 Pillars of Islam are followed in today's society. They came up with some insightful questions.

They learned about: uses of water; the amount of water we use; which reservoirs our water comes from; the natural water cycle and where in this cycle water companies intervene to create clean water; using water wisely.
Having composed our pieces of music based on a journey of a river, the children played and evaluated them.
