When Mr Booth came to visit

Today we were very fortunate to welcome Mr Booth from the Garforth branch of Your Move.

Several weeks ago we sent a letter asking him to visit us, to tell us about his role as an Estate Agent.
He came with different things to look at and we learned so much more.

We will use this information to plan and make our newspaper to advertise 25 houses and create some advertising brochures.

Comparing the different houses

Asking questions
What can you remember?

What is the first thing Mr Booth does when he goes to visit someone who wants to sell their house?

How much was the most expensive house Mr Booth has sold?

I would like you to post everything you remember from the visit.

Presentation Monday

Today we listened to a presentation by Luke, Bailey and Davey all about their football heroes. We found out about Bobby Moore, Leeds United and Pele.

Luke had taken time to print out his information, with a bit of help from Grandad, and came to school prepared to present his chosen topic.

Well done, I learned something new.

Post a comment about what you remember from the presentation.

Who wants to be a millionaire?

This afternoon we started off with a game. The children had the chance to win a million pounds just by answering a few questions.

We started to think about electricity, how it's used, how to stay safe and how to make a simple circuit.

The children had to sort a range of objects showing how each one is powered.

Tonight make a list of objects in your home and show how they work.

Here is a game to play. Let me know how you get on.
