This week we started reading a book by Dick King-Smith called
'The Queen's Nose'
The main character is Harmony Parker. Her Uncle Ginger sent her on a treasure hunt. At the end she found a 50 pence piece. She discovered that the 50 pence piece was magic. It could grant her 7 wishes in total.
We were all very interested in the 50 pence piece. Max H brought in some of his coins that looked a bit like a 50 pence piece.
This coin is actually an Australian 50 cent piece.
It has 13 sides and that means it is called a tridecagon.
The 50 pence piece has 7 sides and is called a heptagon.
The next day Lucy brought in her money collection from all around the world and we enjoyed looking at it and learning about different money.
It is interesting where learning can lead us!

This week in maths we have been learning how long a cm, 1/2m and a m is. By Paige
|We had a piece of string on the floor and we had to guess how long we thought it would be. We had lots of different ideas about how long it was. By Arden|
