Today in Oak class, we have continued our learning about the second world war and designed and made our very own model Anderson shelters. We first investigated the shape of structures to find out which would make the strongest shelter before designing then making our shelters. We thought about how we could strengthen our structures as well as how to make ‘flaps’ to make it easy to stick extra parts on. We will continue to make furniture and decorate our shelters next week. We will also test them to make sure they fit the design brief of being able to house 6 Lego people and take the weight of our class novel (Letters from the lighthouse which is all about World War 2 evacuees!)!

Today we have been learning how to read and write roman numerals up to 1000. We were able to match number cards to their roman numeral equivalent and write different important dates using roman numerals such as our date of birth, Christmas say, New Year’s day and most importantly today’s date!
