1GT go to university!

1GT visited Goldsmiths for a morning packed with brilliant maths learning delivered by the university’s student teachers.  They challenged the children to use their mathematical knowledge and problem-solving skills through a carousel of fun activities which ranged from Bingo to Board Games.  What was your favourite activity? Can you explain what you had to do?


An egg-citing visit from the Bug Man!

Today 1GT were extremely brave as they came face-to-face with snakes, lizards, tarantulas and huge snails!  Andrew the Bug Man talked about the life-cycles of these egg-laying creatures, and we discovered their similarities and differences.  We even had the chance to stroke and pet them! What was your favourite creature?
