On Monday in Swift we learnt right angles and straight angles.
We created angle dances! First we were given a challenge to either show 90 degrees or 180 degrees. We collaborated in groups to practise different moves. We used our arms, legs, feet and eachother!
Excitingly, Swift class have had their first Philosophy lesson with Alfie from Bristol University. We will be having Philosophy lessons every Wednesday afternoons.
Well what is Philosophy? So that we could begin to understand what Philosophy is, we asked Alfie some questions. Next, he gave us a set of questions; in groups we collaborated to sort them into piles. Questions which we thought were not Philosophical (they had an answer) and questions which we thought were Philosophical.
After a lot of discussion and debating, these were some examples we agreed were Philosophical:
If a tree fell down in a forest and made a sound, would there be a sound if no one was there to hear it?
Do we dream only in our sleep?
Why can’t a stick be a sword?

The beach is a new and exciting addition to our playground offering lots of opportunities for digging, building, investigating, role play and general good fun.
Great enthusiasm and lots of interest as the new sewing course starts. Run by Bristol Sewing School, we are so impressed with the skills of our community!
