On the Move

Hello parents,
with winter the blog has been in hibernation for the past few months, but now awake and back on the job. In our new unit, On the Move, we are looking at simple machines, how they work and how they help us in every day life. You might be hearing your children use words like gears and levers and even an inclined plane... do you know what these words mean? Follow the link above to the Ed Heads website and see if you know more about the seven Simple Machines than your child... do you think that it is a wedge or a lever? A gear or a wheel and axle?
Also there is a link to the Math Magician site; it is a brilliant place to practice basic facts in a timed situation and a fun way to learn.
Keep watching this space!
