We began a topic of money and looked at the value of coins. We sorted money into values and added heaps to make totals.
We decided we would start a shop and use the junk boxes to sell. We plan to organise this next week .
During Skills time some of us built Lego Titanics. We decided to see if they would float or sink. It has stirred our interest in water and why things float . We are going to investigate this more over the next few weeks
