Visit to Guru Nanak Gurudwara Huddersfield

Visit to Guru Nanak Gurudwara Huddersfield 1
On Tuesday and Wednesday this week, Year 6 visited the Sikh Gurdwara in Huddersfield.  This visit reinforced the learning that has taken place during our RE sessions this term and proved to be a very valuable experience.  We were able to see inside both prayer halls, look at artefacts relating to Sikhism, ask lots of questions about the faith and share a delicious meal in the langar hall.  The children behaved impeccably and were a real credit to our school.  We were also able to make a donation of £18 to the gurdwara.

Investigating negative numbers

 

We worked in pairs to find out what happened when we added and subtracted negative numbers in different orders e.g putting the larger number first in the calculation -3 + -5 = then swapping it around so that the larger number came second  -5 + - 3 =.
