Here we are enjoying some 'outdoor maths' as part of maths week. We used the data from this traffic survey to find percentages and discussed the questions it raised, thinking about further investigations or local campaigns we could run.

Our set text in English lessons at the moment is 'Goth Girl and the Ghost of a Mouse' by Chris Riddle, the audiobook of which we've been listening to over the course of the past two weeks. We have begun the process today of creating our own characters for the story, following the same process that Chris Riddle enjoys. As an illustrator first and foremost, he sketches out his characters to begin with, and finds that his stories develop as his drawings do. We watched some of videos of CR talking about his story writing process, and then had a go at just copying one of his characters - Ishmael, the ghost of a mouse - before starting to create ours. Here are the fantastic results of our sketching this afternoon!
