As part of our History work this term, we have been studying Baghdad (c900). We focused on Al-Khwarizmi, who invented algebra, Arabic numerals (the ones we still use today!) and algorithms. To understand just how detailed an algorithm needs to be, wrote our own, instructing our robot teachers about how to make a jam sandwich!
We encountered many difficulties (and Miss Alexander, Miss Middleton and Mrs Dale thoroughly enjoyed using their hands to smear jam everywhere!), but we got there in the end!
