Year 4 have had fun this morning with decimals. They had to measure various body parts and record them in a place value grid. These numbers were then divided by 10 and 100 to get decimal numbers. We had fun comparing each others numbers and found out that some of us have a bigger sized head than our teacher!
Year 3 have been learning about bones and dental hygiene. We have been looking at different skeletons and what they look like in comparison to the animal’s body. We then started an investigation into what would happen if we never brushed our teeth. The results were very disgusting and all of us decided it was definitely best to brush our teeth twice a day to avoid the build up of plaque and prevent decay. We then wrote our own letters to the tooth fairy explaining why dental hygiene was so important!

Safer Internet Day comes to Great Linford Primary School!
Our school joined forces to tackle the topic of a safer internet for our children. Everyone got involved and throughout the day we did various activities related to e-safety. The children engaged in such activities as designing logos, making pledges and talking about staying safe using social media. By getting involved and celebrating Safer Internet Day the children and staff now further understand how to use online tools responsibly and also how to be safe, whilst remaining respectful to others.
We will continue to champion and reinforce these principles in our day to day schooling and encourage anyone interested to take a look at the following websites for helpful handy tips.
Year 5 had a great day Igniting their learning about the geographical impact of the Victorians within our local area. The children researched key areas of Milton Keynes and also took inspiration from Holdenby House visit. They then planned and designed their own model version before spending the rest of the day making them in groups - Have a look at some of the finished models. A great day's work!
Thank you to all the families who came to our annual Books at Bedtime event. It was great to see so many people in pyjamas with their favourite story books. The staff enjoyed reading stories and sharing books from when they were young.
