Cool Time & Rotation

On Tuesday afternoons we have Cool Time (Continuing Our Own Learning) and on Friday afternoons we have Rotation activities which are great fun. Cool Time activities include Maths games and investigations, word games, extending our comprehension skills through reading and drama, learning new craft skills and developing those we already know, science investigations and extending our learning about our class topic. We are able to choose which activities we do and we really enjoy setting ourselves new challenges.
