Counting in 2,5 and 10 - 31st October 2018
Today we were counting in 2,5 and 10 again. This time we used pumpkin seeds to do it as a Halloween treat. We got all of the seeds out of the pumpkin and then put them into rows of 2,5 and 10 to count them. At the end of the lesson we looked at how this is related to multiplication through arrays.

Measurement - 26th September 2018
This week we have been learning how to use the rulers to measure different objects. Today we measured different parts of our body. We used border rolls to measure different parts, such as our arm span, and then we used a metre stick to see how long they are. Once we had all measured the different parts we compared them using <, > and =.
Topic - Old Fashioned Games - 13.9.18
Today we were learning about games that were played in the olden days. We played the clapping game 'A sailor Went to Sea, Sea, Sea' and the running games Foxy-Chicken-Hen and The Shepherdess and Her Sheep. In Foxy-Chicken-Hen is similar to 'What's the Time Mr Wolf?' and The Shepherdess and Her Sheep is very similar to 'British Bulldog'. We had lots of fun playing these and we definitely want to play these again!

Place Value - September 2018
This week we have been practising our counting and looking at how numbers are made. We have been looking at hundreds, tens and ones and comparing numbers. To apply our knowledge we have been picking numbers at random, saying what they are and then getting the correct number of cubes or ten sticks and ones. Also, we have made models using the tens and ones and got our friends to work out what our model was worth.
