In Maths we have been learning all about money. We have had an exciting week of buying objects in our pretend shop and thinking of different ways to pay for objects. The children had a good knowledge of the reasons why we need money! They even knew that we must have money to pay bills!
This term we will be learning all about buildings and we had a fantastic start to this topic by visiting Canterbury Cathedral. It was a very exciting day and we learnt so much about the history of the building. The children were amazed by the fact that heavy buckets of stone were carried to the top of the cathedral by a pulley system powered by a giant hamster wheel!
