Year 4 had a fantastic time at the Gudwara in Gravesend. They learned all about Sikhism.They said, "the temple was amazing!"In mathematics, they also made 3D shapes with pipe cleaners and beads.
This helped them learn the properties of shapes.I was really exciting when they put their Christmas tree up on Tuesday 3rd December 2013. Then they made lots of 3D shapes from nets and put them under the tree.
